Anniversary quilts are made at significant points in WAQA history. Most have been made at 5 year anniversaries.
The request for an anniversary quilt usually comes from the WAQA committee and is usually taken up by an established sewing group or individual member.
The subject of the quilt is left to the makers who may choose to follow a theme if there is one for the anniversary year.
In 2011, the theme was Food for Thought. It was made by the Sandypatchers sewing group with members making food related appliqued blocks.
The quilt was pieced by Margaret Manson and the final quilting was done by Sheila Pye.
The quilt is featured on the back of the Anniversary Cookbook.
