Congratulations to the Youth Challenge Winners!

Our young quilters have done it again! Some amazing quilts have been entered by 31 youth in our 2016 Cantik Batik Youth Challenge - My Favourite Game or Sport. 

To see these quilts, visit our website gallery.

A special thank you to Cantik Batiks for your continued support of promoting quilting in youth across Canada!

This year’s winners are:

Rachel Gelinas (JK-Gr 5) with her quilt “Fisher Girl”

Isabella Nie (Gr 6-8) with her quilt “Canada’s Hockey Night

Sara Evans (Gr 9-12) with her quilt “Checkmate

Laina Gold - Viewers’ Choice winner and her quilt “Tag, You’re It!”

Thanks to the wonderful quilters who worked with these young people to inspire and teach them about quilting.  I’m sure we’ll be seeing some of these quilters in our National Juried Show in a few years!

Thanks to Ann Perry who had the difficult job of judging all these entries! 

More details about these winners and their quilts will be featured in the next edition (summer) of The Canadian Quilter.
