New Zealand – April 2011

Hi from New Zealand. I’m having a wonderful time with an awesome group of quilters. Internet access hasn’t been as good as I’d hoped, so it’s been challenging to share my trip with you. But here’s a glimpse of what I’ve been up to so far.

Auckland Stars

Auckland Stars

Leg one of my trip began with classes for the POP Quilters and the Auckland Patchworkers Guild. Above are just a few of the stars designed on day one of a 2-day class.

 

Auckland - Wendy's Tree

After completing her original designed star, Wendy Johnson decided to work on a manageable-size project during day 2. She designed this cute little tree and star that she plans to use as a quilted Christmas Card. By the time she arrived at guild meeting the following day, it was quilted and bound.

 

Auckland -Nicola's Star

Nicola Graham was working on a sunburst that would become part of a much larger design. In her other life, Nicola designs wedding gowns and formal wear.

 

Auckland -Marney's Star

Marney Lyons designed this terrific star, using a unique print that really accentuates the overall design. All of the students were “stars”!!!

 

Now the quilt and textile tour part of my trip has begun.  We are having a blast!  I’ll be sharing more of the trip with you soon.

    Tell tour members, Justine Lott and Cora Stewart hello from the “Remnants.” We are missing you. Hope you are having a great time.
