At November sewing day and evening, the 2018 Challenge quilts were revealed for the first time. The theme was “Curiosity/A Curiosity” and there were many varied interpretations and styles on show among 24 quilts. Each member present had the opportunity to vote for their favourite quilt. The criteria for voting were most imaginative interpretation of the theme or patchwork/quilting technique.
The Challenge Quilts will travel around the state to interested groups and will feature at QuiltWest 2019. If your quilting or sewing group is interested in borrowing the quilts for a few days, please contact the Challenge Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a convenient time.
Congratulations to all members who participated in the WAQA Challenge 2018, and thanks to all those who voted. The votes were spread out with most quilts receiving three or four votes each.
The voting from Sewing day and Sewing evening were combined to give a final tally.
We are pleased to announce the place winners.
Fifth was Clementine’s a Curiosity made by Val York.
Fourth was Black and White or White and Black by Lesley Warren. Lesley’s quilt was most intriguing with a tag on the side “Lift Me if Curious”. Upon lifting the quilt, the viewer discovers another quilt the negative of the top version.
In equal second place were Believe It or Not by Kaye Watson and In Black and White by Theresa Jennings.
Congratulations to the first place winner who won by a clear margin. Why? by Glenda
Woods who receives a certificate and a small prize.
