Auckland Festival of Quilts 2014

I went to the Auckland Festival of Quilts on Sunday and had a great day looking at quilts and of course all the Merchants booths.
I only took a few photos to share, so lets get into it.

Beautiful sampler quilt, so big was hard to get in photo! The workmanship was amazing and they are 4 inch blocks! I really think this should have received a ribbon.

 closer look at some of the blocks and below the lovely applique border.

Another masterpiece that was ribbon-less, but very much a winner for me.

close up of the wonderful zig zags, made by off set half square triangles.

Loved this quilt all in neutral fabrics. the background of the quilt had drunkard path blocks, the border was made with double wedding ring blocks and then daisies appliqued on top! 

Yay it did win a ribbon! Below a close up of one of the double wedding ring border blocks.
The whole quilt is really amazing, the more you look the more you see.


Great curved piecing and loved the colours too.

Loved how all the straight lines and hard angles still make a realistic face.

  5. I also attended a Festival of Quilts in NYC! It was really well planned, and every design of quilt was really amazing. I think the event planner did an amazing work there. You have shared amazing designs of quilts dear. Can I buy any quilt from here?
