Ciao!   This month competition theme has been chosen by Aurifil themselves with a box of The Basics Collection .. 12 spools of 50 weight cotton thread in 12 individual shades as the prize.

What does the thought of Italy invoke in you.   The wonderful canals of Venice?  Lake Garda or Lake Como, or do you prefer the coastal regions?   A plate of delicious pasta and a large glass of red wine perhaps.

This month we are looking for your quilting interpretation of this lovely country.  Italy!

Why Italy .. well, it’s where the Aurifil Thread is made of course.

As ever  .. the quilts should be no larger than 42″ either side, but can be constructed from any technique, from applique to traditional, mixed textiles, a quilt, a coverlet or a wall hanging.

The first step is,to post a picture of your quilt onto the UK Quilters United Facebook page as soon as you are ready .. and don’t forget to add #October19competition as your tag so we can find your entry

On the 24th October we will choose the six quilts with most likes and they will appear here on this page for our members to choose their favourite.

The quilt with the most votes will win this lovely Aurifil Thread pack, and the runner up a pair of tickets to a Grosvenor Show of their choice.

A liker from FB and a voter from our website will also will a pair of tickets each to a Grosvenor Show of their choice.

The two winning quilts will be exhibited at the 2019/20 Members Choice Exhibition which will be touring with Grosvenor Shows next year starting in August at the 2020 Great Northern Quilt Show in Harrogate.
