Quiltfest Applications Start in April

The theme for the 38th annual Jacksonville Quiltfest (QuiltfestJax) is “Sew Your Heart Out.” It will be held from Sept. 19-21, 2024, at the Prime Osborn Convention Center, 1000 Water Street, Jacksonville, Florida, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.

Since 1986, local quilters have been showcasing their handmade creations. A present-day quilt show represents a broad array of techniques and the use of modern fabrics and designs. From art quilts and modern quilts to traditional pieced and appliqued quilts, there will be a variety of beautiful or thought-provoking quilts on display.

The all-volunteer event is hosted by seven local quilting guilds. Quilters are invited to submit their applications for inclusion and to be judged starting in April. About 400 quilts are accepted for display each year, none of which have been shown at the Jacksonville Quiltfest previously.

Explore the website at www.Quiltfestjax.com. Visit Facebook @quiltfestjax or Instagram @jaxquiltfest to see the quilts from the 2023 show and more.

The seven sister guilds that create this annual show are: All Stars Quilters’ Guild, Coastal Quilters, Friendship Quilters Guild, Honeybee Quilters Guild, Jacksonville Modern Quilt Guild, River City Piecemakers, and St Augustine Piecemakers.

I highly recommend attending these quilt shows, including the ones for our local guild. The art and craftsmanship is just outstanding.
