Lark Books Quilt It! Contest

I received an e-mail from Lark Books announcing a new Quilt It! contest. It will run from October 15 to January 5. To enter, just submit a photo of a quilt- but it must contain three of these five elements: birds, mountains, something silver, recycled materials, and beads. You can read more about the contest at Lark's website.

http://www.larkbooks.com/crafts/quilt-it-contest The contest is open to residents of the U.S. only.

One Grand Prize winner will receive a $100 gift certificate to www.hancocks-paducah.com and 11 quilting books from the Lark collection. Four Quilt Category winners will each receive 11 quilting books
The categories are:

Best Use of Beading or Beaded Elements:
In celebration of Creative Quilting With Beads, this prize will be awarded to the quilter who employs the best use of beading or beaded elements in his or her quilt entry.

Best Use of Hand-Dyed/Altered Fabrics
To celebrate the November 2009 release of Color Your Cloth, this prize will be awarded to the quilt that incorporates the most creative use of hand-dyed or altered fabrics.

Best Art Quilt
This prize will be awarded to the best art quilt. This category celebrates Masters: Art Quilts and the forthcoming 500 Art Quilts.

Best Use of Recycled Material
As beautifully illustrated in the January 2010 launch of Quilt It with Wool, this prize will be awarded to the quilt that represents a creative, original, or unexpected use of recycled or repurposed material.

Actually, I think I already have an art quilt that could be entered in this contest, but I might do another one since you know how much I love one of the required elements: mountains! How about a silvery frozen creek?
