This beautiful show is open to anyone who currently lives in Utah, or who has ever lived in Utah. Quilts must not be made from a kit (full or partial) where the pattern and the fabric are packaged together, must be no longer than 120”, must have not been previously entered into this show and must be three years old or younger. (The quilt, not the quilter.)

Remember to follow the instructions for the special hanging sleeve for this show— without it your quilt cannot be accepted.  Please read the entry requirements and specifications on the website.  Online entry forms are available at www.smofa.org.  This form needs to be filled out online before bringing your quilt to the museum.

The area available for the show was enlarged by the SMOA in 2018, so this means we need even more entries to fill the space. We need your beautiful work, quilters! An individual can submit up to 2 quilts of all colors and designs. Entries will be accepted online beginning June 14th, with quilts brought in person on Friday, July 9 and Sat, July 10, 2021. (Be prepared to follow social distancing guidelines.)

Entry fees are $16.00 per quilt, payable to the SMOA.


Quality in workmanship, design, color, originality, and general appeal will be the principal criteria applied by the selection committee for admission to the show. The same criteria will also be used by the judges. There will be awards for “Best of Show”, “Best Hand Quilting,” as well as many other awards.
