Victorian Quilters celebrated their 25th Anniversary in 2018.
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
