To celebrate the South African Quilters’ Guild’s 30th anniversary we would like to invite all SAQG members to participate in a small quilt challenge to be exhibited at the SAQG Stall at the National Quilt Festival in Johannesburg in August 2019.

Theme:  Time to Celebrate

Criteria: ONLY and ALL of the 6 colours of the SAQG logo must be used.
Any technique or combination of techniques may be used to create the quilt.

Entry deadline: for the completed quilts is 19 July 2019

We encourage each Regional Guild and Country Group to participate by running the challenge amongst their members. We ask them to choose and send three of the entries, to be included for display at Festival. There will be up to 30 quilts which will be selected to be on exhibition.

 Individual members are invited to participate as well.
