There were quite a few club challenges. Follow this link to view the winning quilts.
Also on display were the Aotearoa Best of New Zealand ‘Flight’ Challenge. 20 quilts currently touring the country. I feel its best that I do not post all my photographs of these quilts until such time as they have completed touring.To view the quilts touring schedule please follow this link.
I am sure there will be an article on these clever quilts in the Next Issue of the New Zealand Quilter magazine.
Here are just two of the 20 quilts on tour.
