2025 Showcase Challenge

KCRQF proudly presents the Showcase Quilt Challenge, an event that features a new theme for each festival. This challenge celebrates the skill and creativity of local festival guild stitchers, highlighting their talent in a dynamic and evolving way. Two quilts will be selected to be featured in the Showcase Plexiglass display case at the entrance to the Exhibit Hall. See Challenge Rules for further details
