Showcase Challenge


Two quilts will be selected to be hung in the Showcase Plexiglas display case in the entryway of the 2021 Kansas City Regional Quilt Festival. Based on available display space, non-winning entries may be placed on display inside the Festival’s quilt viewing area.


The Missouri Bicentennial will be celebrated in 2021 and the Festival will help Missouri celebrate. The 2021 KCRQF Showcase Challenge provides several opportunities for us to share in Missouri’s rich history and culture. For our Challenge, choose one, some, or all of the four items listed below, for which Missouri is well known, for your inspiration.

  • Missouri State Dance - Square Dance
  • Missouri State Bird - Eastern Blue Bird
  • Missouri State Dessert - Ice Cream Cone
  • Missouri State Insect - Honey Bee

Who May Enter?

Any member, or group of members, from any of the KCRQF Participating Guilds may enter.

  • Everyone involved in the construction of the quilt must be an active guild member.
  • Only hand or machine quilting services may be obtained from outside the participating guild membership.
