I just received an announcement from The Houston International Quilt Show regarding "the debut of a new annual international juried and judged contest for art quilts." The 2008 contest is called "Town and Country" and the theme is centered on "landscapes, cityscapes, realistic or abstract views of life, and other interpretations of rural or urban life."

With the talent represented among our readers and the Crazy Quilt community in general, I know there will be some of you interested in participating in this contest. Complete rules and entry forms are available at www.quilts.com under "Contests." You can also request a copy by email: shows@quilts.com You may also call 713-781-6864 or write: Festival Gallery rules, c/o Quilts, Inc., 7660 Woodway, Suite 550, Houston, TX 77063.

The quilt entries of the winners and finalists will be on display at venues including the 2008 International Quilt Festival/Houston, 2009 International Quilt Festival/Chicago, and 2009 International Quilt Festival/Long Beach.

The first place winner will receive $2,500 cash prize, round trip airfare, hotel accommodations, and other perks at the 2008 International Quilt Festival/Houston, TX (Oct.30 - Nov.2) at the George R. Brown Convention Center. The runner up will receive $1,000 in addition to the other arrangements mentioned above. Your quilt will be returned to you after the last exhibit.

The prizes are fabulous so I encourage you to check out the above website for the rules and regulations. I can guarantee you a wonderful experience at the 2008 Houston International Quilt Festival.
