From time to time the Wellington Quilters Committee offers up a challenge to members.
2018 Challenge: Whatever the Weather
In 2018, the "Whatever the Weather" Challenge was to:
Create a quilted work that makes a statement about or illustrates an aspect of the weather.
These quilts were displayed at our 2018 exhibition in October.
Be a member of the Wellington Quilters’ Guild
Design and make a quilted item about weather
Use any technique e.g. pieced (by hand or machine) appliqued, paper pieced,
embellished, embroidered, painted, folded etc
The finished item may be 2D or 3D and must fit within a cube measuring
50cm x 50cm x 50cm
Use any type of fabric or combination of fabrics. Non-fabric items e.g. paper, plastic, metal etc may be incorporated and may make up to a third of the design
Ensure the finished work is multi-layered and held together by stitch
Complete your entry and deliver it to the September WQ meeting on Sept 13th 2018.
There will be a judge’s award and a viewers’ choice award for this challenge.
2017 Challenge: Wellington at it’s best
In 2017, the challenge was to make a quilted wall hanging,
in either portrait or landscape format,
using any technique and from any materials,
with the theme "Wellington at it's best".
The theme could be interpreted in any way that the maker wished.
