The judges felt that this quilt was a perfect contemporary interpretation of a traditional strippy block. The maker has also included the recycling element that epitomises quilt tradition, but with a contemporary twist. The fresh use of colour combined with the texture created by the words and prints on the selvages gives energy and depth to the overall design.
Quilts that draw on the traditions of quilt making, through piecing, appliqué or wholecloth, but have an original approach. Makers may use non-traditional fabrics, fabric printing and dyeing, embellishment and unusual construction methods. Quilts should have an original design and demonstrate sure use of colour. They may be sewn by hand, machine or any combination.
