Sydney Quilt Show 2021 Online
QuiltNSW is committed to providing its members with opportunities to share their quilts and to celebrate creativity. In 2021, the Sydney Quilt Show is a special virtual event where all of the quilts are judged in the cloth, photographed and then displayed in the Sydney Quilt Show 2021 Online Gallery

40th Anniversary Celebrations 2022
Here are some important updates to assist you in planning your entry for the Sydney Quilt Show 2022:
- Full Range of Categories: The Coverlet and Two Person Collaborative Quilt categories will return for 2022. (However, these two categories, along with Miniature, are under review for future years due to low participation levels.)
- Blue & White Special Themed Category: No minimum size. Maximum size 280 x 280 cm. Any blue. If you want to use a print incorporating other colours, it should still read as blue. So please keep other colours to a minimum. There is no limit to the number of different fabrics you may choose to use. Bright, fresh white – no cream.
- Limit of 400 Quilts & Selection Ballot: QuiltNSW has set a limit of 400 quilts in the members’ exhibition having regard to space and resource considerations. In 2022, if we receive valid entries for more than 400 quilts, a ballot will be conducted of second choice entries to a number we consider manageable. We will not be asking for voluntary withdrawals.
- Quilts in Progress Not Eligible: in the past, QuiltNSW has accepted quilts-in-progress in the entry form. However, the high number of withdrawals and dimension changes requested by members is problematic and burdensome. As a result, for 2022 all quilts must be complete at the time of entry (including quilt top, quilting and finished edges) and must be available for the dates of exhibition specified in the entry form.
- If you are planning on entering Entrant’s Quilt Top Quilted by Another (Categories 5 and 10), please ensure that your quilter is a current QuiltNSW member.
- QuiltNSW respects the rights of Indigenous Australians to own and control their heritage. Therefore, entrants should refrain from incorporating design elements derived from indigenous heritage into their quilts without the informed consent of the indigenous owners.
- You must include proper attribution of the design source for your quilt(s) and, if applicable, design consent from the copyright holder. (We do not require design consent for quilts made from commercially available patterns.) Obtain design consent before commencing work on your quilt.
- All entries in Category 13: Art Quilt must be you own original design, not a copy or variation on the original design of another artist working in any medium.
