From it's start as a print in the Urban Couture collection, it's grown to become an instantly recognizable, iconic fabric.&nbsp; With 226 colors and five variations, Grunge is officially a "thing."</p> <p>2020 is Moda Fabrics and United Notions 45th Anniversary and we're celebrating with a Grunge Contest.&nbsp; We're calling on Grunge-loving quilters to create a quilt using any Grunge fabric.&nbsp; There are prizes, and the top three winning quilts will hang in the Moda booth at the 2020 International Fall Market in Houston.<br /><br /></p> <p>Here's what you need to know.&nbsp;</p> <p><span>Start Date.&nbsp;&nbsp;</span>The 2020 Grunge Contest officially starts on Saturday, February 1.</p> <p><span>Deadline.&nbsp;&nbsp;</span>Shops will be displaying entries and having their voting process starting September 1.&nbsp; But check with your favorite quilt shop to be sure on the dates and process!</p> <p><span>Fabrics.&nbsp;&nbsp;</span>The quilt top and back must be made with Moda Grunge brand fabrics - and&nbsp;<span>only&nbsp;</span>Moda Grunge brand fabrics.&nbsp; The collections include&nbsp;<a href="https://www.unitednotions.com/fcc_grunge.pdf" target="_blank"><span>Grunge</span></a>,&nbsp;<a href="https://www.unitednotions.com/fcc_grunge2017.pdf" target="_blank"><span>Grunge Hits the Spot</span></a>,&nbsp;<a href="https://www.unitednotions.com/fcc_grunge-grunge-dot-metallic.pdf" target="_blank"><span>Grunge Metallic Hits the Spot</span></a>,&nbsp;<a href="https://www.unitednotions.com/fcc_grunge-seeing-stars.pdf" target="_blank"><span>Grunge Seeing Stars</span></a>,&nbsp;<a href="https://www.unitednotions.com/fcc_grunge-seeing-stars-metallic.pdf" target="_blank"><span>Grunge Metallics Seeing Stars</span></a>,&nbsp;<a href="https://www.unitednotions.com/fcc_grunge-grunge-dot-metallic.pdf" target="_blank"><span>Grunge Metallics</span></a>&nbsp;and&nbsp;<a href="https://my.modafabrics.com/shop/search.do?keyword=grunge+glitter&amp;searchType=keyword" target="_blank"><span>Glitter Grunge</span></a>.&nbsp;</p> <p><span>Type of Project.&nbsp;&nbsp;</span>Any type of construction may be used to make the quilt - piecing and appliqu<span>&eacute;</span>, embroidery, hand or machine quilting.&nbsp; But the work must be original - commercial patterns or books may not be used.</p> <p><span>Size.&nbsp;&nbsp;</span>The finished size of the quilt must not exceed 240" around.&nbsp; E.g., a 60" x 60" quilt will be 240" total size.&nbsp; A 60" x 70" quilt will be too big at 260" total size.</p> <p><span>Finished Quilts Only.&nbsp;&nbsp;</span>Quilts must be quilted and bound to be considered in the final judging.&nbsp; Since shops will be submitting photos of the quilts, the quilt must be completed when the shop makes their choices and takes the picture.</p> <p><span>Quilt Label.&nbsp;&nbsp;</span>The quilt must be labeled, and it must include the Maker's name, the Quilter's name - if different, the city and contact information of the Maker.&nbsp;</p> <p><span>Limit on Entries?&nbsp;&nbsp;</span>There is no limit to the number of quilts you can enter at your quilt shop.&nbsp; But each shop can submit only one quilt to Moda as their entry for the 2020 Grunge Contest.&nbsp;<br /><br /></p> <p><span>Prizes?&nbsp;&nbsp;</span>The top three quilts will have their quilts hang in the Moda booth at Fall Quilt Market 2020 and receive cash prizes.&nbsp; First prize - $2,000.&nbsp; Second prize - $1,000.&nbsp; Third prize - $750.&nbsp; The quilts will be returned to the Makers after Fall Market.&nbsp;</p> <p>So ask your favorite quilt shop if they're on board for the 2020 Grunge Contest.&nbsp; If they carry any of BasicGrey's Grunge collections, we're betting they will be.&nbsp;</p> <p>If you want to keep the contest details on hand -&nbsp;<a href="http://www.unitednotions.com/ct_grungecontest_postcard.pdf" target="_blank"><span>2020 Grunge Contest Postcard</span></a>.</p> <p>Are you in?&nbsp;
