2nd Annual Quilt Contest
Freedom in Christ Prison Ministry invites you or your quilting group to enter our 2nd Annual Quilt Contest. Prizes of $200 for 1st place, $100 for 2nd place and $75 for 3rd place will be awarded to the top three quilt winners. The contest lets you share your love of quilting with an opportunity to win a nice prize, have your work viewed world-wide on our website and support a vital ministry to men who are incarcerated in the State of Montana. After the contest, a silent auction is held to raise funds to help continue our mission at Montana State Prison.
To participate, please send the registration form and a $10 entry fee to the address listed on the form by September 30. (The $10 fee is to help offset costs associated for the contest.) Then, have fun designing and sewing your quilt! Please feel free to copy the form if you need more, or go to our website to download and print. You can find the registration form on our Forms page .
All quilts are due to Freedom in Christ no later than November 10th. Please include a one or two paragraph description of your design and information about yourself, or your group, with your quilt. Delivery information will be provided to all contest entrants. Quilts entered into the contest become the property of Freedom in Christ Prison Ministry for the auction held across Montana in February.
Your quilt(s) is photographed by a skilled photographer and posted on our website. Everyone is encouraged to vote for the best quilt on the website between December 1st and December 21st. Winners are announced in January on the website, with prizes awarded at our Auction in February.
We invite you to help us change lives so that these men will become productive citizens of our communities and not return to a life of crime. Freedom in Christ is bigger than any one church, or community, or denomination, and ministers to men from many different church backgrounds as well as those with no church background at all. Together we can offer hope and a new life to these men, most of who will eventually be released and returning to our communities.
