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 & galleries in Brisbane, Ipswich, Bribie Island, Roma, Charleville, Warwick & Boonah.
