Jean Roth, who is a member of the Racing Fingers Quilt Guild (racingfingersquiltguild.com) which meets in Daytona Beach, is a semifinalist in the 2022 AQS (American Quilter’s Society) Quilt Week held February 23-26 at the Ocean Center. Jean’s quilt, Moonlit Garden Bunny Hop, will be displayed with all 240 other semi-finalist quilts in this contest.
Quilts were entered in this contest from 14 countries and 37 US states. More than $50,000 will be awarded to the top three quilts in seven categories including $10,000 for Best in Show, and $3,500 each for Best Wall Quilt, Best Traditional Design, Best Original Design, Best Hand Quilt, Best Stationary Workmanship, and Best Movable Workmanship. Winners will be announced at the show and at Americanquilter.com
There will also be exhibit quilts on display from many designs.
AQS president Bill Schroeder has said, “AQS has a longstanding history of having the best of the best quilts in our contests. Just when we think the quality of the quilts can’t get any better, quilters step up their creativity even more and set a new standard of quilt making. This year’s contest is no exception and these quilts are truly exceptional.”
