Each year our members can enter a Quilt Challenge.
Usually it is a fabric challenge where the entry fee includes a Fat Quarter of a specific fabric that they must use to create a quilt. The challenge fabric must make up 20% of the front of the finished quilt but any extra fabric, method of construction, technique or embellishment may be used.
Annually 50-60 challenge quilts are entered by our members, that are held for approx 18 months for touring and exhibitions. They have been shown in exhibitions and galleries in Brisbane, Ipswich, Bribie Island, Roma, Charleville, Warwick and Boonah.
Queensland Quilters Inc is proud to announce that Brother Australia partnered with us to sponsor our 2019-2020 Challenge.
First Prize is the new digital Scan’n’Cut SDX1200
