Island Quilts is the annual showcase of the wonderful work of the Tasmanian Quilting Guild and its members. At the heart of this exhibition is the quilts that guild members submit. Our categories embrace everyone, from beginning and amateur quilters through to more advanced and professional quilters. The quilts range from designs that are traditional through to modern and from size from miniature to large. Quilting and piecing techniques may be by hand, by domestic machine, or done on a longarm quilting machine. Obviously, Island Quilts is for everyone!

Island Quilts 2021: A Colour Explosion
After our COVID hiatus in 2020, restrictions meant a physical exhibition was not possible in 2021. However the show DID go on, and we held our first online exhibition. It was a roaring success, and although we certainly hope to have further exhibitions in person the feedback we received from guild members as well as viewers from all over the world is that an online exhibition is appreciated.
