This is the first quilt Dorothy has ever exhibited. It is lovely; the use of colour was delightful.
Lynda's quilt. The quilt was more cream than it shows here.
Ngaire's circles were bright and pleasing. Because I don't use a filter on my camera the creams and whites all look fawn ( sorry ).
Viv's Storm at Sea was for her husband's birthday.
Some of you might recognise this quilt from when I was making it. It looked better here amongst all the others than I thought it would.
The green in this was actually much more vibrant than it shows here.
Sandra's quilt was all lovely soft pastels. The next post will have lots of wall hangings, bags and the challenge. It's all going well so far and we hope for a big crowd today. We know of a bus load coming today, but it's wet so hope lots of others turn out too.
Quilting is a wonderful hobby for me. I love the beautiful fabric and colours - my artistic side comes alive.
I have lived in Te Puna near Tauranga since 1978, where my husband ( R ) and I own a small orchard where we grow Kiwifruit and Avocados for export. We have a large garden and grow many other fruit, nuts and vegetables. When I was young I was a teacher and particularly liked teaching art. I have also worked in the Kiwifruit Industry in Quality Control and Auditing. I love to create and am currently passionate about patchwork and quilting. I sew by hand and using my Bernina Aurora 440 machine.
