Entry Rules & Forms


Hello, Quiltie Friends!!  Greetings and Salutations, one and all, from your Best of the Valley quilt show family.  We are thrilled and delighted to announce the resumption of our show, with BOTV 2022.  Mark your calendars for April 1-3, 2022.  It will be here, before you know it.

This will be our 25th show.  We are planning a CELEBRATION!  You are invited to be part of it.  After more than a year of lockdown, surely you have at least one new quilt to share with the rest of us.  Watch our website for downloadable/printable entry forms which will be available online near the end of the year. We are no longer mass mailing entry forms.  If needed, contact us and we will mail one to you.

Our quilt show is both juried and judged, and over $5000 in premiums will be awarded.

Our vendor space is open and available.  This past year has been difficult on everyone, and many of our favorite vendors have retired.  If you have something quilt-related or appealing to quilters, please contact us through the website, and we will put you in contact with Charlotte, our Vendor Chair.

The 2022 BOTV Challenge theme is “CELEBRATIONS!”  Challenge quilts should measure 18x24”, landscape or portrait, and be submitted by March 1.  See the entries page to download the rules and entry form.  There is no entry fee for your challenge, and premiums are awarded by Viewer’s Choice voting.

Our “Featured Artist” will be a 25 year Artist Retrospective.  We plan to have work from each of our past Featured Artists on display.  This is quite the undertaking to coordinate, but we know it’s going to be worth it!  We are definitely excited about this, and hope that you are, too!

Once again there will be special categories for quilters under the age of 18, and quilters 80 years or older to share their (unjudged) quilts.  (Judging is available by paying the entry fee.)  These categories also have premiums awarded by Viewer’s Choice voting.

And dolls!  We will have dolls!!  The dollmakers have been busy, busy, busy, stitching up a parade of entries.  As always, the doll exhibit promises to overflow with creativity.

Oh, yes, we are back and we have just what you have been missing:  Large quilt show with cash awards, large vendor mall, quilt appraisals, on-site food and quiltie friends gathered together from far and near.

To be part of BOTV 2022, please mark your calendars with the following dates:

February 14, 2022: receive by date for quilt and doll entries
March 1, 2022:  receive by date for quilt challenge entries

Oh, yes!!  We are back!!
After the past year and then some, BOTV 2022 promises to be a BIG celebration.  Freedom to gather together, combined with twenty-five years of Best of the Valley?  Oh, yes!!  That’s definitely a reason to celebrate.  Come!  Join us!!  April 1-3, 2022, at McDermont X in Lindsay, CA.

On behalf of all BOTV Board members and Associates, I welcome you to be a part of the fun.  Though I say this each year, I have absolutely no doubt that this will be our best show yet!!

See you there!!

Suzanne Kistler
President, Best of the Valley Quilt Show
