Article and pattern submissions do not need to be complete, a sketch or idea you would like to explore in an article is sufficient. Articles and patterns usually have 4-5 weeks to be completed and turned in, after being contracted for the issue. Compensation for articles and patterns is mutually agreed upon prior to finalizing a contract.
Gallery: Submit a high-resolution image of your gallery quilt submission, we are looking for a flat shot against a white or neutral background. Your quilt does not need to be a recent finish, and it’s okay if it’s been shared elsewhere publicly. All images should be 300dpi and at least 8” x 12”, in .tif .heic or .jpg formats.

We would love to see articles addressing the design elements of negative space, listening to a quilt in progress or when to stop designing, and what to take away. Also, using prints in modern quilts successfully. We've printed 20 volumes of Curated Quilts - perhaps a retrospective article?
We would love to see small and large ideas that include the negative space design element for patterns. Pattern ideas must be original and unpublished.
We are excited to feature your quilts using negative space design elements! Please share a flat image of your quilt for consideration to be included in the next issue of Curated Quilts.
*Quilts should be original to you, not made from someone else's pattern.
Please use gap as inspiration for your negative space mini quilt design. You can piece, appliqué, improvise, or paper piece your mini quilt. We love seeing your creativity and appreciate all forms of piecing in your mini quilts.
Details we look for:
- Square quilts, 10" x 10" up to 16" x 16".
- The color palette is as close to inspiration as possible.
- Creativity within the theme/inspiration.
- Quilting should be tidy and support the piecing.
- Finished - bound and ready to ship for photos.
- Clear, well-lit photos help us see all your hard work clearly.
