The Australasian Quilt Convention for 2009 has now closed. Congratulations to Guild member, Merelyn Pearce who was awarded the Australian National Quilt Award, sponsored by Bernina, for her 2008 Sydney Quilt Show Sydney Quilt Show quilt Wheelflower Medallion. If you missed seeing this quilt last year, you will have another opportunity to view it as part of the Best of Australia exhibition that will tour with Craft and Quilt Fairs throughout 2009.
