2020 2QMod Challenge moved to 2021
In light of some of the recent Covid-19 related challenges many of us are facing, including the cancellation of the 2Q Quilt Show this year, where we were hoping to first display the quilts in our “Off Kilter” Challenge, 2QMod are now also making some changes.
We will now be extending the entry and quilt delivery dates by 12 months, to the same time in 2021. So, that will now mean that the online entries will be due by the 14th of August 2021, with the quilts themselves to be handed in by the 11th of September 2021.
For those of you that have already finished your quilt entries, the good news is that you now have plenty of time to create a second quilt from all of the other ideas you might have had.
For those of you contemplating entering, or for those of you with your quilts still in progress, then the even better news is that you now have more time to get them created and completed at a more relaxed rate, or even use some of the surplus creative ideas to get another quilt ready for entry.
Please remember that this Challenge is open to ALL members of 2Q, and we encourage all of you to consider getting involved, especially if are lucky to be in your sewing room a little more of late and are looking for something new to get in to.
First PRIZE: $300 cash donated by Queensland Quilters Inc.
Second PRIZE: $200 cash donated by Queensland Quilters Inc.
Third PRIZE: $100 cash donated by Queensland Quilters Inc.
