On A Lovely Winters Day…

a couple of weekends ago a friend and I went to a Quilt Show of one of the many smaller groups in Auckland.
The Show was really lovely and the morning/afternoon tea, which was provided by the quilters was divine. There’s no doubt that quilters can also bake!
I took photos of some of the quilts, but sorry am not sure who made them. 
You’ll see some of the quilts look a bit elongated, as I couldn’t get far enough back to take the photos, so some of them are taken on a bit of an angle. Unfortunately I’ve also missed off a few borders, but you can get the general idea that they were lovely.

I think these two cushions were part of a challenge.IMG_2438

I saw several quilts there that I really like, but all of them are wonderful. It's nice of you to share these pictures. At our September quilt show - the American Quilters Society show - we may take pictures, but aren't permitted to display them (blog) in any way. I have to settle for taking pictures and admiring them myself, and sometimes using them as reference when I need quilting inspiration.

Lovely Sue, thanks for sharing! I especially love the 'Junior Patches' section, how lovely for young sewers/budding quilters to have their work shown alongside the grownups!!! It is very encouraging!!!!

So many special quilts. So much talent. I'd love to know if there is a pattern for the last one, with the flowers. Beautiful.

I think that blogging is so wonderful--it has brought NZ to Connecticut USA in one easy click! What a treat to view these wonderful quilts--I would never have had the chance to see them if I hadn't found your blog! Thank you!
