Qld Quilters – Challenge Quilts
A major travelling exhibition has been secured to be exhibited throughout the weekend. Comprising of 49 quilts, the challenge had entrants competing across three sections – amateur, junior and professional.
Focusing around a fabric theme, the challenge features the print pictured right, from the Imperial Collection 7 by Robert Kaufman. Guidelines involve creating a 50cm x 70cm quilt using any quilting technique, manipulation and embellishment, with at least 20% of the finished quilt featuring the selected challenge fabric.
Over 40 stalls in the venue offer a huge range of craft supplies, the best in materials and fabrics, notions, books, beads…. everything for the quilter, artist and home sewer.
