Modern Quilt Show Australia

Kiama 29th-31st May 2015

Wollongong Modern Quilt Guild is proud to present the second Modern Quilt Show Australia.  Our aim is to showcase the finest modern quilts from around Australia.  In 2014 we brought together 150 modern quilts from across NSW, ACT, Victoria, Queensland and Tasmania for the very first modern quilt show in Australia.

This is a charity event, with proceeds donated to Grand Pacific Health’s Suicide Prevention Program.

New Modern Quilt Categories:
After the success of last year’s Modern Quilt Show Australia, we have introduced the following quilt categories to further highlight the modern aspects of quilting:

  • Improvisation
  • Minimalistic design
  • Use of negative space
  • Modern traditionalism
  • Group & working bee
  • Youth (school age children)

Quilt submissions for the Show are currently open. Last entries will be accepted at 11.59pm on Sunday 3rd May 2015

To enter your quilt, and for more information on each Category, please view our entry form here. NB: You do not need to be affiliated with a Guild to enter Modern Quilt Show Australia.

Located by the beach in picturesque Kiama, NSW, The Pavilion is a stunning new venue that is sure to impress. The main hall is light and airy, and the downstairs rooms will be used for workshops and lectures.
