Cyclone Tracy 40 Year Anniversary Quilt Challenge
Quilters around Australia are being invited to make a quilt that reflects their memories of the devastation of Darwin when Cyclone Tracy unleashed her destructive force on Christmas Eve 1974.
Participants in the challenge need not have lived in Darwin at the time nor experienced the Cyclone, but will have perhaps remembered it through media and other's accounts.
4 Prizes are being offered : First - $250.00
Second - $150.00
Third - $100.00
Viewers Choice $200.00
Quilts must be A4 Size (29.5cm x 21 cm) and in portrait profile.
Quilts must be 3 layers and must be quilted.
Any technique or combination of techniques can be utilised.
Finished quilts must have hanging sleeves both top and bottom of the back of the quilt.
Quilts will become the property of Darwin Patchworkers & Quilters Inc.
