From The Editor
The last few weeks have certainly been tough ones with the enormity of the bushfire situation in NSW.
Our thoughts are with those who have been impacted in any way by the bushfires….

1. INNOVATIVE CUSTOM Large: Minimum of 240”, maximum of 480” perimeter. Heirloom/Show quilts have been specifically designed as quilt show entries and/or not intended to be used as functional bed quilts. Fibers, fringe, crystals and embellishments of any other kind are permitted.
2. INNOVATIVE CUSTOM Small: Minimum 60”, maximum 240” perimeter. Heirloom/Show quilts have been specifically designed as quilt show entries and/or not intended to be used as functional quilts. Fibers, fringe, crystals and embellishments of any other kind are permitted.
3. WHOLECLOTH: Minimum of 100” perimeter, maximum of 480” perimeter. The entry must be a single piece of fabric or minimally pieced from the same fabric to increase size only. The Wholecloth piece should be designed to highlight the many quilting techniques of today’s machine quilters, including, meandering or background quilting, straight lines, feathers, continuous line and non-continuous line designs. The quilting must be the dominant feature of the Wholecloth and the quilting should encompass the entire quilt. Painting or other embellishments are not permitted in this category.
Unlike Innovative Custom there are no embellishments allowed in this category, use your quilting styles and designs as your feature elements. Doesn’t mean you have to use one colour of thread, but that you use only thread. Your quilt may be any colour, white is traditional, but let’s shake it up and see some other colours here. I love seeing what goes in this category.
