Cabin Fever Quilters’ Guild invites artists (18+) residing in Interior Alaska to enter original artworks for consideration in Quilt Alaska 2024! Artists are welcome to submit up to one (1) quilt (Traditional, Contemporary, or Modern)* and/or one (1) wearable art* garment through the online registration form at fairbanksarts.org. This call is organized by the Cabin Fever Quilters’ Guild and hosted in Fairbanks Arts Association’s Bear Gallery.

A quilt is a multi-layered textile, traditionally composed of two or more layers of fabric or fiber. Commonly, three layers are used with a filler material. These layers traditionally include a woven cloth top, a layer of batting or wadding, and a woven back combined using quilting techniques. Traditional quilts rely on a grid of regularly repeating designs, symmetry, sashing, borders, often complicated patchwork, and simple quilting. Contemporary quilts may have traditional blocks and layouts but feature unusual color combinations, complex piecing, and embellishments. These quilts may borrow from traditional patterns, but they often stretch, skew, or flip the patterns and blocks into new and different configurations. Modern quilting pushes the boundaries of the craft, incorporating unconventional materials such as recycled fabrics and techniques such as improvisational piecing.

Wearable art refers to clothing and accessories intentionally designed as pieces of art. It can take many forms, but the key characteristic of wearable art is that it is unique, one-of-a-kind, and not mass-produced.
