The Bainbridge Island Modern Quilt Guild has issued a call for quilts for the upcoming Bainbridge Quilt Festival.

The festival is a non-juried, non-judged show open to all quilters, and will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 13 along Winslow Way.

Festival day includes a sew-in at the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art where even non-sewists can make blocks for American Hero Quilts and learn about repurposing fabric to keep it out of the landfill.

Raffle quilt tickets will go on sale July 4 at the Bainbridge Island Modern Quilt Guild booth during the Grand Old Fourth in Winslow.

For more information on the festival, or to see submission guidelines and download an entry form, visit www.BainbridgeIslandModernQuiltGuild.com.

The Bainbridge Island Modern Quilt Guild is a local affiliate of the national Modern Quilt Guild.

The guilds are a non-profit formed to develop and encourage the art of modern quilting. The guild supports quilters and other fiber artists interested in non­traditional quilting projects and offers educational opportunities through workshops and sharing of information.
