The exhibition will also showcase the finished quilts from The Pan-African Friendship Quilt Challenge which invited quilters from different African countries to be ‘twinned’ with each other. Each set of quilters produced two quilts – each quilter working on her own quilt and then swapping with the other thus adding to the design and increasing the size.
The South African Quilters' Guild was founded in 1989 at the 3rd National Quilt Festival held in Bloemfontein and has been the co-ordinating body of quilting in South Africa since then. The SAQG is the national guild of South Africa, a non-profit association with 11 regional guilds represented as well as other affiliated quilting groups.
