Quilt Symposium Auckland 2019 - Exhibition Category





Create a quilt taking inspiration from imagery in the following poem by Sam Hunt.


Boathouse Chord

I live in a boathouse on stilts

but ponder often

the houses others live in


the mansions on the hill

where everybody gets

a private room


and corridors that go as corridors do –

adjustment time –

room to room;


or the shacks and flats

round the edge of the inlet

that look like they float.


The people who live there go

room to room –



I think I prefer that.

Number of Makers:

ONE maker only



Any style, any shape, any size but no larger than 1 metre (39.5 inches)  in any direction.


Finishing your Quilt:

A hook Velcro strip must be sewn securely along the top of the quilt at the back.  For ease of stitching, you may wish to machine sew the Velcro onto a strip of fabric, then hand stitch the fabric firmly to the quilt.  Please attach a strip of fluffy velcro to the hook strip to protect other textiles your quilt may be next to.  Label the fluffy strip with your name and registration number.

A fabric label must be firmly sewn to the back of the quilt.  It should be placed on the bottom left corner of the quilt when the quilt is viewed from the back.

Information on the label must include:

  •        Name of Maker
  •        Symposium Registration Number
  •        Title of Quilt
  •        Size of Quilt (in cms)
