GEELONG PATCHWORK AND QUILTERS’ GUILD INC.
EXHIBITION CHALLENGE 2017
 
Doll’s Coverlet – 50cm by 50 cm
 
 
At this year’s exhibition we are fortunate to have some older quilts as our feature display.  To compliment these wonderful quilts our challenge is a Doll’s Coverlet.
 
Here are the rules for the Challenge:                                                                      
 
Size:  50cm by 50 cm.
 
Definition: for the purpose of this challenge we are defining a coverlet as a cotton or linen top with a backing.  Note – there is to be no batting or centre layer.
 
Construction / techniques:   can be pieced, appliqued or embroidered.  It can be machine stitched or hand worked and be of a traditional or modern design.
 
Finishing:  the Coverlet can be bagged out or have a binding and needs to be either quilted (hand or machine) or tied.
 
Hanging: A hanging sleeve of 4 inches or 10cms needs to be attached to the back.
 
 
This is a judged section by three of the Guild’s life members and there will be Member’s Choice voting at the November meeting.
 
Congratulations to all those members entering, have fun with the theme.
 
 
 
Members Stall at the Geelong Patchwork & Quilters Guild Exhibition
November 2017
 
Expressions of interest is called for items to sell on the Members Stall at the Exhibition in November. We need members
who are willing to make small saleable items for the stall. The items will need to be priced beforehand by the creator and
the appropriate form to be filled in. The items need to be patchwork/craft related and need to reflect the high standard
of the Guild. Members who wish to sell items will be required to help on the stall during the exhibition (unless they have
a really good excuse not too!). The Guild will retain 10% of the sale price of the items sold. Same applies if you wish to
place a “For Sale” sign on a quilt on display at the Exhibition. If interested please let Judy Bubb, Members Stall Convenor know.
