Solar Tour Contest: The Sunniest Quilt Will Win $100

Quilt by Theresa Wright

In its fifth year, HRSG realized that the Hampton Roads Solar Tour tour had no logo of its own. Who better to create that original logo but a quilter? To be exhibited at the central site of the 2013 tour, HRSG is offering prizes of $100 (first place), $50 (second place) and $25 (third place) to the winners of its quilt show. Quilts must express the wonderful use(s) of solar power, be original, 1-yard-by-1-yard or less, and have a 4-in. quilt pocket on the back. HRSG reserves the right to use any entry as its logo submitted for the contest. For inspiration, go to to see last year’s web site. Call Theresa Wright, (757) 851-5085, who will email or mail you a set of rules.

The tour will take place Oct. 5, 2013, with more than 20 homes and businesses exhibiting the use of solar power. It will be open to the public all over the Hampton Roads area.
