Every year Canberra Quilters has two challenge theme categories at the exhibition. For 2014 the theme is ‘Opposites’. Members can choose to respond to the theme anyway they like in their quilt or creative clothing item:
Quilt – measuring 70cm x 50cm, portrait or landscape orientation
Garment or accessory
There are many opposites in the world. You may want to choose opposites on the colour wheel- red/ green, blue/orange, yellow purple. Or go with black and white. You could have symbols like positive (+) and negative (-), Yin/ Yang, Male/ Female (♂ ♀). You represent fast and slow in some way or stop and go. Using just stitch you could create rough and smooth. There are many possibilities for you to consider.
Enter your items in the Annual Members Exhibition, held in August 2014. You have until June to submit an entry. The entry pack will be available in the March 2014 issue of Connecting Threads and online from March 2014. You need to be a member by 31 March 2014 to be eligible to enter items in the exhibition.
