Tasmanian Art Quilt Prize Review

Australian Patchwork and Quilting has produced a full review of the winners and finalists in the inaugural Tasmanian Art Quilt competition held last year.  Kathy Adams of KoolKat Quilting won the People's Choice award for her entry "Hobart - What a Site".  This quilt is featured on page 1 of the article in APQ Vol 23 No. 10 just released.  Kathy's quilt is 36 mini-quilts assembled onto a wholecloth background.  The work was inspired by Google Earth images and Kathy's own photos of the site.  The quilt has hand-dyed and commercial silk, hand-discharge-dyed cotton fabric and was machine quilted by Kathy.  The Tasmanian Art Quilt Prize is to be awarded every two years.
