Welcome to KCRQF!

Kansas City is home to dozens of quilt guilds and sewing groups, rooted within a strong history of quilting in the area. Quilts from the legendary Kansas City Star blocks have been made worldwide, and for the past 80+ years “Kansas City” has been a familiar name to quilters across the globe. This festival provides the perfect opportunity to get inspired for your next project, be it traditional or contemporary.

COVID-19 UPDATE:  The Quilt Guilds organizing the 2021 Kansas City Regional Quilt Festival are continuing towards our plans to hold the 2021 KCRQF.  We will continue to monitor, in collaboration with state and local health officials, any and all issues related to Covid-19 and how it may impact the Festival.  What we are pleased to announce is that the Overland Park Convention Center (location of the 2021 KCRQF) has achieved a Global Biorisk Advisory Council® (GBAC) STAR™ accreditation and has implemented the most stringent protocols for cleaning, disinfection and infectious disease prevention in its facility.
