The Country Yards Exhibition

Last Saturday I went out to the Country Yards Exhibition. It was a great show well worth seeing even if the weather wasn't very kind. I did manage to stay dry in between the spring showers though!
I took at few photos of items that appealed to me, to share with you all. So here we go.

I loved this it looks like it's straight out of a picture book.
Wall hanging by Ngaire Fleming.

I love kiwis and all things kiwiana so loved this. Wall hanging by Susan McRae.
The quilting is special too. Click the picture for a closer look
 to see how the tui's tail is quilted in, and the palm's trunks are extended

This stitchery/applique wall hanging by Racheal, was Lynette Andersons Button Mystery.

This was a group quilt made for Leeanne's 40th Birthday (no not me!)
This Leeanne is the from http://quiltmekiwi.blogspot.com/ check out her blog it's good.
I thought this was a good idea for a gift quilt, with everyone making a bag block.
(sorry for the side way's photo as it was in a tight space!)

There were a lot of beautiful cushions, this one is made by Noeline.

And this cushion is made by Leeanne of quilt me kiwi blog (link above)
I was praised for this cushion, as several people thought it was mine, but I did put them right and say it was the other Leeanne's work!

This quilt is a sample made to showcase these fabrics for the shop.
It was very popular, and the cushions added a lovely touch too.
