The committee of the Gympie Rotary Quilt & Craft Spectacular 2023 are calling for submissions – individual embroidered and/ or quilted blocks, 8” wide x 4”- 6” high – which will be pieced together to create an “Honour Quilt”, acknowledging and honouring special people who have made a difference to someone else – a relative, a friend, a mentor etc. 

Each block submitted will acknowlege that special person, created using any form of stitchery, embroidery, applique, embellishment, beading etc. They can be flamboyant or subtle, elaborate or naive, humourous, quirky, sentimental – it’s up to you! Whatever best represents the person you are acknowledging.
