Preparations for Quilt Expo are Underway

July 30, 2015 Wisconsin Public Television Leave a Comment

Every year a ton of work goes into making Quilt Expo a great place to “Escape. Create. Celebrate.” and one of the most rewarding tasks – processing entries in the 10-category juried and judged Quilt Contest – is now complete.

With hundreds of entries, it took a jury a full afternoon and most of the evening to sort through all the quilts and to choose the best order for displaying them. It’s a grueling task, but I can assure you the jury was looking forward to spending hours scrutinizing every stitch and detail of the quilts.

We snuck into the jury room and snapped some photos to give you an idea of how they make their decisions. Check out the photos below, and remember to see the quilts for yourself at the Quilt Contest exhibit at this year’s Quilt Expo, Sept. 10-12 in Madison.

Three jurors spend almost a full day processing the quilt entries.

Stacks upon stacks of paperwork, and plenty of caffeine to get through it all.

Back at the Quilt Expo call center at WPT, tickets are ready to be mailed.
