Dianne Firth Wins Quilt National Award 2013

Quilt National, a biennial art quilt exhibition in Ohio, is widely regarded as the premier event in the contemporary quilting calendar. In 2013 "there were 851 quilts submitted by 458 artists from 44 states, 17 countries and five Canadian Provinces. Jurors Linda Colsh, Penny McMorris, and Judith Content selected 85 quilts by 85 artists. The exhibitors represented 27 states and 7 foreign countries. In this exhibition 20 percent of the exhibitors are first time Quilt National artists."

Congratulations to Guild member Dianne Firth who was awarded the McCarthy Memorial Award for her quilt Storm. You can view Dianne's work, and the quilts of the other prize winners, in the Quilt National 2013 Prize Winners Gallery.
