Antarctic challenge quilts

Christchurch quilters had a quilt show in October and the topic of the quilt challenge was ANTARCTICA!

Many wonderful quilts were presented. I gave two talks (August 2014 and June 2015) to give some ideas and to show that this place is not only white…. many quilters were inspired and searched for the perfect motive.

21 quilts will now go down to the ice. Antarctica New Zealand is supporting the idea that these quilts have to be shown to a wider audience and provide a space at Scott Base where they can be displayed from 18 December to 4 January. That is the time when I am there as tutor for Polar History with PCAS.

I will report more on the event when I am there.
