What a wonderful way to commemorate an amazing trip.
Every piece of 'window glass' a great memory.
Conquering Christchurch by Sophie Wood.
Somehow I forgot to take a photo of the label, oops. 'Conquering' is an interesting word to use, in the media the softer word- rebuild is usually used.
Sorry for the bad photos of this quilt but it was amazing so I didn't want to leave it out.
"Ode to Tron" by Sue Pope - Hamilton
Loved the use of different size blocks & modern fabrics to jazz up this traditional block design into a modern quilt.
From the tutors exhibit, I liked a lot about this quilt. The big stitch quilting, the large simple shapes of the flowers/leaves, and the different pink background fabrics.
The quilting was just so good on this quilt, it really made it something special.
Which block do you see first?
I saw the 'Drunkards Path', but most friends I asked, see the 'New York Beauty' first.
Wool with lovely big stitches in wool too.
Cool use of stripes.
Beautiful painting and stitching.
UPDATED- have just found out another of Mathea Daunheimer's works 'Fragility, Kina at Rangiputa' won the Viewers Choice Award.Use this link to pop over to "All of Me" -blog to see some great detail photos of Mathea's winning quilt
Mathea used to be a member of Whangarei P & Q Club when she lived in Whangarei. She is a lovely person and so talented. Congratulations Mathea!
This was a very popular quilt and I think it would have received a lot of votes for viewers choice.
Loved the use of 'word' fabrics in the background. Takes me back a few years to happy days at Play Centre with my boys.
All the colour was stitched or couched. Reminded me of string pictures from my childhood.
More photos later, bye for now
