Fyvie Murray: She is...First prize sponsored by Mallee Textiles. The #MeToo slogan on this quilt caused me to reflect about the way society sees women and how women are taught to see themselves. Measuring women in terms of family relationships blurs their reality.
Camilla Watson: ReflectionsMerit prize sponsored by Aroha Quilts. Shadows and sparkles on a rainy evening.
Kat Martin: Who Needs a WifeMerit Prize sponsored by Aroha Quilts. With his two favourite workmates, this cowboy reflects on the best day of his life as he headed west.
Lois Parish Evans: Tranquil WatersMerit Prize sponsored by Aroha Quilts. Not a breath of wind disturbs the tranquillity of the inspirational reflections as I meander along the water's edge, absorbing the soulful stillness and serenity of the lake
Lynne Rowe: Last sail before sundownRookie award sponsored by Aotearoa Quilters. A beautiful photo that a friend had snapped of a yacht with a brightly coloured sail and the reflection of the lake water inspired me to capture it in fabric
Catherine McDonald: Flanders FieldsI think about the senseless loss of young life that comes from war. Why do those who send the young to fight think their lives are expendable? Why do we not learn from history and stop the carnage?
Jill Bowman: Reflections on being clean and greenImages of New Zealand's snow-clad mountains, green forests and crystal-clear lakes disguise the reality: receding glaciers, felled forests releasing sequestered carbon, and unswimmable waterways.
Juliet Fitness: Reflecting on my William Morris heritageMy Great-Grandfather, Metford Warner, printed wallpapers for William Morris. My grandfather founded a silk-weaving company, producing damasks with Morris-inspired patterns, which my father designed.
Kathleen Burford: Shimmering WaterI frequently walk along the banks of a river near my house; the sunlight that shines on the water changes daily. This is the 3rd quilt in a series that I have made.
Marilyn Clark: Cooling OffCooling off is exactly what he was doing, sitting in a river in Kenya. He is watching the other zebras as they leave the water, after also trying to get respite from the heat
Mary Jane Sneyd: Piles at St ClairThe first groynes on St Clair beach, of piles and cross members, were constructed in the early 1900s to protect the beach. As a child, I climbed them often. Now they have almost disappeared
Merrilyn George Reflecting in Mathematics for TransformationReflection of two kinds: on our stamp and relationship with the land, and a mathematical term. Visceral joy is in the maths I see in all natural and manmade patterns (including Maori design) about us
Pauline Dennis: SurrealA visual, and memory, reflection. I took this photo in the Lake District, visited the Beatrix Potter shop, then walked down the lane and saw this lovely tree and bridge. It's surreal - imagine Peter Rabbit
Ruth Nicholas: Children of TaneI dyed this fabric with emphasis on the colour, shapes and creatures of the forest. The more you look and reflect on this art quilt, the more children of Tane you will see.
Ruth Nicholas: Walking in the BushWalking in the bush in Aotearoa is special. The calmness and amazing colours support and promote reflection
Shirley Sparks: Fading LightThe reflections disappear as the light fades
Sonya Prchal: Little TreasuresLong reflective walks during lockdown had me reassessing priorities. Life is short. Enjoy every moment. Treasure your loved ones and embrace the freedoms we experience in our beautiful country
Valda Sutton When I was a Little Girl….One of my favourite activites was picking flowers in Mum's garden in springtime, arranging them and selling them to my family in my make-believe flowershop in my treehouse. The poor flowers!
