I am a world traveller & a mom of two, (8 & 6). I love to meet people, and am fascinated that there are 7 billion stories out there to be explored. I think Melbourne is the most happening city to live in with all the fun activities around town.
Are you game?
The Australian Quilt Convention (AQC) 2015 has announced the dates for the upcoming year. The AQC will be held from 16 April to 19 April 2015 at the Royal Exhibition Building.
While the convention may still be a few months away, but here is an exciting news for those who are expert quilters. AQC has announced a competition or a challenge and there is significant money to be won. Entrants will have to prepare a quilt with the dimensions of 90cm x 90cm (36 inches square). The theme selected for the challenge is "True Blue" and the entries must reflect their interpretation of the theme. The deadline for entries is 27 February 2015.
The winner of this challenge will also secure the honour of having their quilt displayed at the convention. The prizes to be won are as follows: First: $3,500 Runner-up: $1,500 Viewer's Choice: $500
The judging criteria is simple: representation of the theme, craftsmanship and designing. One entrant can submit two entries and the quilt must have been prepared between June 2014 and the deadline. Participants from anywhere in Australia can enter. For compete rules, visit this link. Entry forms are also available at their website.
