2020 Grunge Contest

Join us in celebrating 45 years of Moda fabrics! Make an original quilt entirely out of grunge fabric by September 1 for the chance to win over $5000 in prizes! The top 3 quilts will be displayed in the Moda booth at Fall Quilt Market 2020! Quilts should be submitted to your local quilt shop (aka us!) for display and voting. Then each shop will submit their most grunge-tastic quilt to Moda for judging and the opportunity for both the quilter and their quilt shop to win a prize.


1. Quilt top and backing must contain ONLY Moda Grunge fabrics.
2. Any type of piecing, quilting, embroidery, thread art, etc can be used. Original work only, no quilts from patterns will be accepted.
3. All 4 sides of quilt should measure 240″ total or less. For example, a 60″ x 60″ quilt = 240″ (60 x 4). A 40″ X 50″ quilt = 180″ (40″ x 2 sides + 50″ x 2 sides).
4. Quilts must be fully completed, quilted and bound. No quilt tops will be accepted.
5. Quilts must be labeled with maker’s and quilter’s name, city and contact information.
6. No limit to the number of entries per individual during the local shop portion of the contest. Each shop may submit 1 quilt only to Moda for final judging.
