25th Anniversary Challenge 2018

25th Anniversary Challenge 2018

2018 will be Victorian Quilters 25th Anniversary.

To celebrate this milestone the standard Challenge Category for Quilt Showcase 2018 and the Profile Member Group presentation will be replaced by two special activities.

  1. For individual members of VQ – “Celebrating 25 years” – 1m square. Any technique, colour, style (traditional, contemporary, art or pictorial).

MUST include the words “Celebrating 25 Years”. The VQ logo may only be depicted as a quilting motif, but not essential. 

A traditional idea: repetition of a block or motif 25 times (ie: block no. 25 in Maggie Malone’s book 5,500 Quilt Block Designs is the Friendship Star). However, the ideas are boundless.

  1. For Member Groups of VQ – “Who We Are & Where We Live“ (what’s special about you as a group)- 1m square. Any technique, colour, style.  

Options: iconic landmarks, landscape references (vineyards, seashore, mountains, cityscape, streetscape). Club logos may be included.


The Challenge will be judged as part of the Showcase judging process. Entries will be displayed at Showcase 2018 and form part of the 2018-2019 Travelling Suitcase.

The Challenge is open only to members of Victorian Quilters. The entry form covers both individuals and groups.
