KCMQG Quilt Exhibit

 March 28, 2023-April 30, 2023

The What Inspires Me In KC quilt exhibit is an opportunity to display your work at the Lenexa City Hall gallery.  The gallery has extended hours, free parking, and a great market place with local vendors.  Your entry should be inspired by the KC Metro area colors, nature, architecture, purchased or originally designed patterns, etc.  Use your imagination this exhibit will represent the diversity of our guild!  

There is no minimum size requirement and multiple submissions are acceptable for both 3D pieces and quilts.  Please see the checklist for quilt sleeve dimensions, 3D entries and label requirements.

The size limitations are:

  • 3D pieces (bags, pillows, vests, coats, hats, etc.) will have two enclosed pedestal size options.  Your piece must fit on a 22′” x 22″ square base and inside the 32″ tall enclosure.  Contact Michele via email for size details and additional requirements if you plan to submit a 3D piece.
