Quilt Entry Drop Off
Vendor List

Delivering Your Quilt Show Entries

Each item must be placed in a separate pillowcase for drop off. Pillowcases will be available at the August meeting. Both drop off locations will also have pillowcases available for you. If you provide your own pillowcase, be aware that you will NOT get your pillowcase back.

Remember to attach the sleeves before dropping off quilts. Instructions here.

There are separate locations and drop off dates for judged and non-judged entries. If you have both judged and non-judged entries, you will need to drop off at both locations.

            Judged Entries:  Creekside Quilting, September 8 – 15

            Non-judged Entries:  Iowa Quilt Block, September 9 – 17

If you have quilts for one of the special exhibits, they may be dropped off at the Iowa Quilt Block. Please put each quilt in a pillowcase and put the name of the special exhibit on the outside of the pillowcase.

Thanks to the Iowa Quilt Block and Creekside Quilting for once again serving as drop off locations. For store locations and hours, go to or
