Here are a few more photos from my club’s exhibition. It’s always interesting to go and view the quilts several times, as you always see something previously missed. Like this gorgeous little fish, stitched by first time exhibitor, Pam Ritchie.
Just look what proud grandmother Clare Grant has made for Erin and Adam. The idea behind these two bed sized quilts are the paper dolls with their wardrobe of paper clothing that were part of her childhood. What a couple of lucky youngsters Erin and Adam are to have such a creative grandmother.
The inspiration behind this quilt was a visit to L’Orangie Museum in Paris to view some of Claude Monet’s paintings. The background blocks were paper pieced over old telephone book pages, and I can remember seeing Petronella busily stitching away on these blocks at several “Stitching Monday” workdays.
We’ll finish our little showing with “Spinning Kaleidoscope”, by Shirley Mooney, another first time exhibitor. This original design was inspired by the lush New Zealand forests, and the opening fern frond (koru) represents new growth.
So that is all from my own particular quilt club’ Pinestream Quilters exhibition. However, tomorrow I am off to the big city to view a just opened exhibition, this one put on by the Wellington Quilters Guild. I just hope they allow photos to be taken! Check back tomorrow and I’ll let you know.
