RIVER QUILTS at the 2012 QQ EXHIBITION
Robyn McPherson and Kay White issued a challenge to members to participate in creating a series of interconnecting River Quilts.
Robyn based the Challenge around the exhibit of River Quilts at the National Quilt Museum in Paducah.
The basic guideline was that the quilts were to have river entry and exit points of 4, 5 or 6 inches wide which could be at any point on each side of the quilt. The river could then meander across the quilt according to the quilter’s own creativity.
Such as been the success of the project that Robyn and Kay have a vision that the ‘River Quilts’ will become a ‘living’ and ‘growing exhibition being expanded not only by Queanbeyan Quilters but by all quilters.
‘River Quilts’ is available to other quilt groups for display at meetings or shows. The guidelines developed by Queanbeyan Quilters are also available for interested groups.
