According to the QuiltNSW: “The New Quilt is a juried survey exhibition showcasing the art of quilting. The exhibition features 36 quilts by contemporary textile artists from across Australia, highlighting the rich diversity of stitched and layered materials.”

“This includes two invitational works by juror-judges Ruth de Vos and Fiona Gavens,” QuiltNSW mentioned.
