All the details of the new Members’ challenge are on the website here.
This is a really exciting and different challenge for us. There is a variety of sizes and formats, designed so that they can be displayed in different grids.
Selected quilts will go to the Ailsa Craig Festival in Canada in May 2019. The Ailsa Craig festival is also doing a similar challenge with the same dimensions with the intention that they will be displayed together in Canada and later some of those quilts will tour New Zealand together.
All accepted quilts will be displayed at the Great New Zealand Quilt Show in Rotorua in March 2019.
Quilts can be in any style. The only style condition is that your artist statement explains the New Zealand characteristic or icon you are featuring. It does not HAVE to be realistic, although of course it can be.
You can submit any number of quilts for this challenge, and the sizes might lend themselves to different interpretations of the same idea.
Quilts must be submitted by February 5th 2019. All the details are on the big challenge button on the web page or at the link above. The challenge page also links to the online entry form.
