As promised here are some of the quilts and wall hangings I liked best in our Exhibition.
Faye's blue quilt was completely reversable. It had been done by quilt as you go ( That is each square is quilted while small then all are put together with the thin blue sashing strips.) It was a small quilt but just yummy.
Gladys, who made this botanical quilt/ wall hanging is one of most senior memebers - she is a fabulous creative quilter.
The fabric Maureen used in her small Oriental looking quilt was fabulous .
Pat's Christmas wall hanging was very much to my liking. Note the addition of a few red jewel decorations.
Trish made this very simple quilt while on holiday at the beach.( from scraps. ) Here below is some detail of the quilting .
I'm not really into pink but most of the little girl's visiting the show were.
Shirley's small Pink quilt.
There was something vaguely familiar about this quilt.... I still like it.
Finally because EVERYTHING in NZ is about rugby at the moment Robin made this display quilt out of a farbric panel to encourage the AB's to play well.
part 2 tomorrow. ( click on photos to enlarge them. )
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.
