AUSTIN -- Agriculture Commissioner Todd Staples is asking quilters across the Lone Star State to participate in the Texas Department of Agriculture’s (TDA) 2012 quilt block competition. This year’s theme, “Agriculture is Your Culture,” was chosen to spotlight TDA’s educational campaign that demonstrates how agriculture impacts the lives of all Americans. Deadline for quilt block submissions is Tuesday, June 5.

Each contestant will use Texas natural fibers -- cotton, wool, and leather -- to create a quilt block to submit to TDA. A panel of judges will select the winning entries, which will be pieced together into a quilt and unveiled in September at TDA’s Food and Fiber Pavilion at the 2012 State Fair of Texas. At the conclusion of the Fair, the quilt will become part of TDA’s popular quilt collection.

To help defray the cost of the contest, there is a $20 fee for each participant packet. The packets contain the natural fiber fabrics to be used in the design, along with tips and techniques for developing the block and additional information about the contest theme.

To participate in the 2012 quilt block competition, call 1-877-99-GOTEX or download a participant form by visiting the TDA Quilt Collection http://gotexan.org/ExperienceGOTEXAN/TheTDAQuiltCollection.aspx section of http://www.gotexan.org.
