Indiana Heritage Quilt Show Returns to Bloomington

Bloomington, Ind. – Now in its 19th year, the Indiana Heritage Quilt Show (IHQS) continues to offer a unique experience for both quilting enthusiasts and anyone who simply appreciates the artistic nature of quilting. This year’s show will take place March 4-6 at the Bloomington/Monroe County Convention Center.

The IHQS will feature over 150 quilts from across the United States. Each beautifully quilted creation will be vying for a portion of $17,000 in cash prizes and awards. Winners will be chosen in each of 10 judged categories, including appliqué, pieced, fabric art, wall quilts, mixed technique, ensemble and small scale quilts.

The IHQS is also proud to host several internationally recognized instructors who will present three full days of workshops. Space is currently still available for many of these workshops offered for quilting enthusiasts. Workshops feature a wide variety of topics and suit all skill levels. Reserve your space quickly, as the deadline is approaching and workshops are filling up fast.

Workshop registrations must be postmarked by Feb. 14 in order to qualify for pre-registration. Please use a separate registration form for each person and be sure to give both your first and second choice of workshop for each day. Information and registration forms are available online at www.IHQS.org.

The Indiana Heritage Quilt Show will also include a Merchant’s Mall and additional quilt-related exhibitions. For more information on the Indiana Heritage Quilt Show visit www.IHQS.org or call the Bloomington Visitors Center at 800-800-0037.
