After 15 successful years, our Wee Quilt Challenge is drawing to a close with the 2018 Grand Finale Challenge – Auld Lang Syne.

Originally a poem, this ancient song was sent by beloved Scottish poet, Robert Burns, to the Scots Musical Museum after he was the first to record it on paper. Auld Lang Syne roughly translates as "for old times’ sake" or "days gone by".

Traditionally sung just before midnight on Hogmanay (Scottish New Year’s Eve), the song is about preserving old friendships and looking back over the year, giving a sense of belonging and nostalgia. It is widely used to symbolize endings and new beginnings – including farewells, memorials and closings.

This year, we challenge quilt artists across Canada and Scotland to create a miniature quilt that evokes the spirit of this much loved song.
