AQS QuiltWeek features over 300 quilts from around the world. Among the five special exhibits are included two international collections, one from the National Quilt Museum, and two curated and hosted by the American Quilter’s Society.
 
The high point of the show recognizes the artistry of today’s quiltmakers, as over 200 quilters in the AQS Quilt Contest compete for more than $44,000 in cash awards. Entries in this international contest and exhibition come from around the world – with entries from forty-three states and seven countries. The winners of this year’s contest have just been selected.
 
This year’s winners come from across the world, each sharing a part of the $44,250 cash prizes. Quilts from twenty-one states have won awards at this year’s contest, and two winners come from other countries – Canada and Germany. These 25 winning quilts will astound the 15,000 quilters expected to visit AQS QuiltWeek in Lancaster, PA, March 13 – 16, 2013.
Meredith Schroeder, Founder and Chairman Emeritus of the American Quilter’s Society, says, “We always receive so many wonderful entries in Lancaster. This year’s show might be the best collection yet!”

-Best of Show Award: SAMPLING THE SILK ROAD by Christine Wickert of Penfield, NY 
-Best Hand Workmanship Award: TENNESSEE TREASURES by Linda M. Roy of Knoxville, TN
