Help Us Dress Auntie Oakley For Quilt Market!

Poor Auntie Oakley, she's been feeling a little exposed ever since she saw her sister Auntie Em all dressed up in her gingham curtains!

We don't want Auntie Oakley to be self-conscious while we're at Quilt Market in October, so we thought we'd ask all of our friends to help her out!  We're having a contest to see who can make the prettiest curtains for Auntie Oakley!  She'll be photographed wearing all of the entries while we're at Quilt Market, and the set of curtains judged "Best of Show" will win one of our awesome Chair-y's in their choice of finish! **Update!  We're also sending the winner an awesome Oliso Steam Iron!** 

Here are the rules:

1.  Curtains must be the original work of the submitter.
2.  Curtains must be made to the specifications in the pattern.
3.  Curtains will need to be received at the Arrow offices by Monday, Oct. 17th, Monday, Oct. 24th. Our address is P.O. Box 410, Elkhorn, WI 53121.  Packages received after the cut-off date will not be considered.
4.  Winner will be determined by a panel of Arrow judges, and the winning entry, along with those that are not specified to be returned, will become the property of Arrow.

Here's the curtain pattern:

Please email us at if you have any questions.  We can't wait to see what you create!


  1. I don't have an Annie Oakley, but I would make the curtains from bandana print fabric. :)

  2. question: will you return the no winning ones?

  3. I think i will have my 10 yr old granddaughter help me make this... it is a good project .. i just dont know what i would use it on since i dont have anything that size it would fit but i would sure find something to use it on if i didnt win.. but will be fun to make..

  4. is this just the final size or can it include patchwork??? ONLY a solid piece of fabric??

  5. I got ideas sketched out! Now to go fabric shopping!
