Tractors, fruit, a Mary River turtle and cane trains have all been used to illustrate the Wide Bay and Burnett region in a commemorative patchwork quilt.
To celebrate 90 years of the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, ABC Wide Bay, which broadcasts from Gympie to Agnes Water and throughout the inland Burnett, asked listeners to submit a handmade quilt patch.
More than 100 squares were submitted by ABC listeners who answered the call to create a 6x6-inch (14x14-centimetre) patch that illustrated their part of the region.
Designs were varied in the techniques and materials used and featured native wildlife, farm produce, the Burrum River and nods to the region's industries.
In an airing of the quilt the reveal of the final masterpiece took place in front of contributors at the Gin Gin Showgrounds.
It was an emotional moment for quilter June Sankowsky.
"I feel proud and honoured to be part of this. [There's been] so much hard work and effort," she said.
In one square, Ms Sankowsky paid tribute to her father and husband with a depiction of the "very special" local war memorial.
"My dad, he was in the Second World War and my husband was in [the] Vietnam [War]," she said.
The Gin Gin Show Society partnered with the ABC on the project and president Kerryn Flanders knew some keen quilters to help coordinate the masterpiece.
"Everyone who contributed will be stoked and it is a piece of art," Ms Flanders said.
Jacque Eden was the chief coordinator who made the centre square and directed the final quilt layout, fitting in with the theme of country to coast.
"We started at the top left-hand corner with the blues of the ocean and sky," she said.
"And worked toward the bottom-right with bright yellow sunshine colours at top-right and the earthy colours down the bottom.
Robyn Greathead from the Gregory River near Childers was overwhelmed by the finished quilt.
"It's just magic, there's so much to take in; the colour, the textures and everybody's different techniques. It's just lovely," she said.
"It's like the whole community coming together and creating something very special."
Ms Greathead used scrap fabric to capture the country essence and illustrated a tractor in her square.
"The bits of rags created so much character — little bits that would've otherwise went to landfill," she said.
The quilt will be available for community organisations to display at events through the Wide Bay and Burnett in 2022 and 2023.
