As you may know, Popular Patchwork teamed up recently with Lady Sew and Sew and Nutex fabrics to offer three fantastic prizes for a quilt design competition. What we were looking for were innovative designs that captured the spirit of the Nutex fabric ranges including Australiana, Kiwiana and Britannia and we certainly weren’t disappointed! The competition was open to all age groups and skill levels and there were no restrictions to size or type of project.

We are delighted to announce the winners names as follows:
  • 1st Prize: Jen Shepherd (Quillow)
  • 2nd Prize: Mary Parry (Hanging/Cushion Design)
  • 3rd Prize: Pam Lye (Quilt)
  • Commendation - Louise Taylor (Tote Bag)
