Registration for BHQG members’ quilts

To all those exhibiting quilts – remember that ALL quilts must have a sleeve attached securely to the back, sewn not pinned. All quilts must also have a permanent label sewn to the back with the quilt title and owner/maker’s name. Need instructions on how to make a sleeve? This page has instructions. QUILTS WITHOUT A SLEEVE WILL NOT BE HUNG.

Registration for EXPO 2017 is now closed. We are thrilled to say that we have nearly 400 quilts to hang in our show. Thank you to our very prolific members!
