2018 Running Away with the Amish

Call for Entries

The 2018 Suitcase Challenge theme is Running Away with the Amish

QuiltNSW members are invited to interpret the style of the Amish in any culturally and religiously sensitive way. Why not make use of the resources in our library and create a quilt which communicates your own quiltmaking practice through an ‘Amish’ lens. Some background on Amish quiltmaking was included in the November issue of The Template. Draw from the many and varied characteristics of Amish quilts and get creative!

Entries must be submitted to the QuiltNSW office by Friday 31 August 2018 along with completion of the online entry form below.
The finished size of each quilt is 40cm x 60cm in portrait orientation.
