We love hearing what a child's imagination can produce and see this contest as a fun way to share that.

Imagine yourself curled up under a handmade quilt with a favorite child, reading an original adventure story woven around the fabrics in the quilt. Now imagine yourself playing with that same girl or boy to create a new story to fit that same quilt – and winning a prize!
Storybook Quilts announces its first annual Tell a Story Contest. This year’s contest goes to the heart of what Storybook Quilts is all about — melding the two creative American traditions of patchwork quilting and storytelling.
The challenge is to create a new story around any of eight Storybook Quilts themes, with the active participation of a child. The story does not have to be polished or perfect; it just needs to show off the wonderful imagination of a boy or girl (or many of them) between the ages of 3 and 10. Telling the story in a video can win a Grand Prize; written stories are eligible for First Prize. Winners will be announced on April 27th, Tell a Story Day in the US.
“Our customers tell us that their children or grandchildren often make up their own stories around the fabrics in the quilts,” said Nancy Mattison, the founder of Storybook Quilts. “We love hearing what a child’s imagination can produce and see this contest as a fun way to share that. Join in and amaze us with your own child’s creativity!”
