AQC Challenge Finalists

Two members of Waverley Patchworkers have quilts in the finals of the 2017 AQC Challenge. Congratulations to Mariya Waters and Eileen Campbell. Both quilts feature birds in their makers response to the theme Made in Australia: Fauna and Flora.

Mariya’s larger than life portrait of an Eclectus Parrot was seen at our February meeting but had to be kept under wraps until now. Eileen has placed the familiar Rainbow Lorikeets in one of her favourite plants, the Bushy Yate.

Winners of the challenge will be announced on April 19 and we wish both of these talented ladies the very best.

All quilts can be seen at the Australasian Quilt Convention, Royal Exhibition Building, Melbourne from Thursday April 20 to Sunday April 23 where you can vote for your favourite.

You can preview theĀ 31 challenge entries here.
