2018 is Victorian Quilters 25th Anniversary.
To celebrate this milestone the standard Challenge Category for Quilt Showcase 2018 and the Profile Member Group presentation was replaced by two special activities.
- 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.
Winner of the Individual challenge: In Stitches: Ramona Resurreccion
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.
Winner of the Group Challenge: Seasons of the Dandenong Ranges: Lyrebird Quilters
Our generous sponsor BERNINA provided a special 25th Anniversary sewing machine as a prize
