Landline is celebrating 30 years on ABC TV and we want you to help us mark the occasion.
We’re making a commemorative quilt from squares created by you.
The theme is Life on the Land, which could mean animals, vehicles, landscapes — whatever regional and rural life means to you.
Use your favourite fibre, yarn, and thread, and create something you’re happy to hand over permanently.
Here are the creative specifications:

Jenny Woodward from ABC Queensland News posted on her Facebook page:
It has been such a delight to be involved in the Queensland Quarantine Quilt. The project was brainchild of ABC Brisbane Breakfast presenters Craig Zonca and Loretta Ryan.
The challenge was to design and make a 15 x 15cm quilt square in any medium, that represented your life in lockdown in 2020.
The squares were collected and then arranged and sewn onto a backing sheet by the amazing members of the Queensland Spinners Weavers and Fibre Artists Association. A mammoth effort completed by a dedicated team.
The Quilt was on display the ABC at Southbank Brisbane and will then go to the State Library of Queensland to be treasured forever.
Our talented members have been busy making great gifts for you and your friends.
Buy local. Buy handmade. Support local artists.
