Quilt Symposium Auckland 2019 Exhibition Category





We are all aware of the rich history of quilting.  Select a favourite early quilt of any style (eg early American, New Zealand or Tivaevae) and re-interpret in any way.  If you wish to submit a photo of your inspiration, this will be displayed with your quilt.  The photograph is not a requirement.


Number of Makers:

ONE maker only



Any size but no larger than 230cm x 230cm (90.5in x 90.5in) 


Finishing your Quilt:

A soft (fluffy) 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 on to a strip of fabric, then hand stitch the fabric firmly to the quilt. 

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)


Closing date for Entries:
