3a. If you want to use accent colors, they must be Cherrywood and must only make up approximately 30% of the piece.
3b. OPTIONAL; An Accent Pack for the contest is available for purchase ($20). These are colors that we predict customers will want to go with the bundle, but is not mandatory. ONLY 30% of the quilt can be accent colors. Otherwise the quilt should "read" as a pink and white piece.
3c. The binding must be Cherrywood. The backing does not need to be.
4. Use any technique and/or embellishment (except glitter)

8. IF CHOSEN as a Finalist, you will be informed by email. Send the actual quilt to Cherrywood in Minnesota

10. Get published in a book, poster, publications, etc. and watch your quilt travel around the world!
• If you purchase the bundle online or at a quilt show, that means you are registered. We like to say you have "skin in the game!" so that's your incentive! When your quilt is FINISHED, we collect your name, address, and digital images on a special website. The jury process is done digitally.
• Purchasing the challenge bundle DOES NOT GUARANTEE that your quilt entry will make it to the Traveling Exhibit. We receive more entries than we can handle, so we must use a jury process to select a limited number of pieces that will be grouped into exhibits.
• Entry fee DOES NOT cover the cost of you shipping your quilt to Cherrywood if it is chosen as a finalist.
• Entry Fee Is not refundable.
