History and prizes
The late Dorothy Collard, a former member of Auckland Quilt Guild, left a bequest from her estate to the Guild to sponsor an annual challenge for five years. After nine years, the Guild has taken over the sponsorship of this challenge.
Dorothy’s estate provided a mounted greenstone trophy with space for engraved plates for each winner’s name to be added, and a sum of $500 per annum to cover a first prize of $200 and three merit awards of $100 each. The first prize winner holds the Dorothy Collard Memorial Trophy for one year.
Each year, the Guild invites their members to participate in the Dorothy Collard Memorial Challenge, to share a love of patchwork and quilting.
The Challenge for 2018: is that you must use a flying geese block somewhere in your quilt.
