Natural Wonders of the World Quilt Challenge

Update :- Exhibition extended to Sunday 8th July


This Challenge has been on display for a few days now at Reyburn House, and is amazing. 
If you are in Whangarei make sure you go and check it out. I took a few photos when I was there last week (but there are many more quilts on display). But you really need to see them in real life to appreciate all the artistry and skill involved in making these beautiful quilts.

The Challenge was to make a quilt from a photo of a Natural Wonder. The twist was that three different quilters (one from Japan, France and New Zealand) made a quilt inspired by the same photo.
