We are celebrating the 40th Birthday of the Utah Quilt Guild in 2017.  There is a guild "Chapter Traveling Quilt Show" that will be shown in 5 different locations in the state.  In conjunction with these shows we are asking members to make and show their own Ruby quilt (See rules for the Red and white quilts below). Individual Quilts can only be shown at one of the locations during the year and also at Quilt Fest in Layton on Sept. 19 - 23, 2017.  Awards for Viewer's Choice will be awarded at each of the 5 show locations.  Votes from all locations will be tallied and added to the votes from Quilt Fest. The quilt with the most votes will receive an extra special $500 gift certificate from Superior Threads.

Ruby Jubilee Quilt Show Entry

How to make a Sleeve for the Ruby Jubilee Quilt Show.

The Traveling show will be at different venues throughout the year.  Each venue has certain rules about the hanging sleeve. We have developed a sleeve that will work at all the venues for the traveling show.  Please follow these directions or your Chapters quilt will not be shown at all venues.

  1. Measure the top of your quilt from edge to edge. Subtract 2 inches. This will be the completed length of your sleeve.
  2. Cut or piece together fabric to make a strip 9" tall and 1 inch less than width of the quilt.
  3. Fold under both short edges about 1/4", wrong sides together. Fold under again to double the fabric. Press. Sew a straight or zigzag seam to hem the folds. The width of the sleeve should be 2 inches less than the width of the quilt.
  4. Now fold the strip lengthwise, wrong sides together, aligning its raw edges. Sew together with a 1/2" seam allowance. Press the seam allowance open.
  5. Place the open seam against the quilt's back. Center and pin the top edge of the tube to the back of the quilt, about 1/2" below the binding.Use a whipstitch to sew the top edge of the tube to the quilt backing. Stitch into the quilt batting occasionally to help strengthen the seam but do not allow the stitches to show on the front of the quilt.
  6. Smooth the sleeve downward along the quilt backing and then make a 1/2" fold along its length to create a pleat. Leaving the pleat intact, pin the sleeve bottom to the quilt.
