AMQ Festival is proud to join with Lloyd Curzon Textiles and Dayview Textiles to present to you a challenge to assist us in raising much needed funds for more research for Alzheimer's Australia. All proceeds will be donated.
Let your imagination run wild and think of a special memory that you have and then transfer that vision into fabric. A memory that is special to you, a childhood memory of a ride on a carousel, a place that you’ve visited, a person that holds special memories, a favourite quilt block the list is endless and remember how blessed we are to have our memories and be able to participate in this initiative.
Each entry is to be accompanied by a story of the memory no longer than 250 words.
All quilts are to be donated and auctioned with full proceeds going to the Alzheimer’s Association. The top thirty finalists will be selected for display at AMQ Festival 2012 with the top 10 being auctioned at the Banquet dinner at Festival. The remaining 20 quilts will be up for silent auction at Festival; all others will be auctioned online within 30 days.
A printable copy of the rules & application form can be found here.
This competition is now closed and entries have been judged! We are still accepting donated quilts to raise funds for Alzheimer's Association but they will not be judged.
