Call for Entries

International Quilt Festival/Long Beach will showcase quilts dedicated to the beauty of the west coast of North America—the cities, the bays, the coastline, the ocean, the waves, the lighthouses, the cliffs, the homes, the boats/ships, the birds, the wildlife, the wildfires, the range in weather—in a special exhibit, West Coast Wonders.
