School Block Challenge - 2014

Sponsored by MODA Fabrics, School Block Challenge is a yearly contest for children. Participating schools, youth groups and parents are given packets with three fabrics from MODA, and students are required to incorporate all three fabrics in their block.

Entries may be created by individual students and small groups. The blocks are judged in categories of K - 4th grades, 5th - 8th grades and 9th - 12th grades. A grand prize award is given to the overall outstanding quilt block.

An exhibition of all quilt blocks will be on exhibit at The National Quilt Museum. A narrative about each block's design and development submitted by the students is also exhibited. A kick-off reception for the exhibit is held in late January to recognize the winners and all the participants. Local residents and media are always invited to meet these amazing quilters and learn more about School Block Challenge.
