Money For Your Quilts! That was a headline in the Omaha World-Herald newspaper, inviting people to enter their quilts in a contest that became an annual event from 1931 to 1940. Readers were encouraged to make quilts from patterns published in the paper and then enter them to be exhibited and judged at local department stores. Quilts came by the hundreds - viewers came by the thousands! It was the Great Depression, and life was difficult in the drought-stricken heartland. Valuable prizes, such as furniture, refrigerators, bicycles and linens, enticed women and men of all ages to enter this prestigious contest. Ten timeless designs selected from patterns published in the Omaha World-Herald have been redrafted for today's quilter. Whether you enjoy patchwork, foundation piecing or applique, everyone can craft their very own Prized Quilt.
