Yesterday I got my quilt back from S who did a wonderful job on their computerised long arm machine. This is the pattern seen more easily on the back. Her charge was SO reasonable I will be sending more quilts her way.
It's the back of this quilt. So I now will get the binding and label on it.
At P and Q yesterday we saw some lovely quilts in show and tell. This was the most unusual one with square edges.made in very subtle tones. The flowers are made with small hexagons.

Sorry about the back ground in this shot. ( with crutches and chair legs ) This is the Care quilt members of the group made for L who has been having massive foot surgery.Some other members drove her here so her Surprise quilt could be presented.
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.
