One of the highlights of the quilting year in Australia is the judging of the Best of Show quilts from around the country to see who will win the National Quilt Award.

Eight states present their Best of Show quilt and they are judged by a panel of three independent quilt guild judges in a state of origin-style competition at AQC.

At the Gala Dinner at AQC on Saturday, April 16, in front of an audience of hundreds of passionate quilters and industry stakeholders, the winner was announced. It’s the highlight of a quilter’s journey.
