Quilt Exchange.

At Calico Christmas there were about 40 small quilts on display that were the result of an Exchange between about 20 members of the Auckland New Zealand Patchworkers and Quilters and 20 members of the Victoria, BC, Canada Guild.

Each participant was given 20cm strips of 8 fabrics ( 4 NZ and 4 Canadian ). 6 had to be used on the front and other fabric could be incorporated. Other media was also allowed.( there were other rules too )

These were the 5 that most appealed to me.

This same display will be travelling to Victoria Canada in January 2009.

Such vastly different ways of rising to the challenge---all of them beautiful!

What gorgeous mini quilts - it is hard to believe they all started with the same fabric!
