Quilters should bring no more than two quilts per person to the museum between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday-Friday or 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays. Museum staff will cap the number of entries into the exhibit at 120.

Submitted quilts must have a 4-inch hanging sleeve either sewn or pinned to the back top of the quilt so the piece can be hung. Antique quilts do not need to have a sleeve. For questions about this, call 339-5745.

This year's quilt challenge is "Appalachian Quilt Trail Challenge."
