The 33nd Annual WWIB/Sew Complete "Warmth from Wisconsin" Quilt Contest is now underway. There are 2 categories to enter: a smaller quilt, at least 46" x 36" and no larger than 60" x 56" or a bed size quilt 60" x 72" or larger. To participate, pick up a "starter" block from Sew Complete. The "starter" block must appear somewhere in the quilt top--it may be altered, but the heart and the words "Warmth from Wisconsin" must remain in tact. The quilts will be distributed evenly between the homeless population through Youth with a Mission and Apple Pregnancy Center in Eau Claire, WI. The grand prize winner will receive a $100 cash award from WWIB. The judges will award up to 3 gift certificates from Sew Complete in each category. For more information, or a complete set of rules and a starter block, stop in or contact Sew Complete. You may also click here for the contest rules.
