World Quilt Competition XVII

It has been my privilege to have been the Australian coordinator for the World Quilt competition for the past 8 years. Many Australian quilters have taken part in the annual competitions and have won prizes on the world stage. This year is no exception with Margaret McDonald and Susan Campbell taking out the Traditional Best Use of Colour award.
Eileen Campbell was winner of Best of Australia and an Honourable Mention for the 2 quilts she entered.
The 10 quilts entered this year came from experienced, well known quilters and others beginning their exciting journey. It is a competition for all levels and the quilts tour to many USA venues for 6 months.
I am retiring as coordinator to spend more time travelling and am happy to tell you Brenda Gael Smith will be coordinator in 2014.
