This is the first time I have participated in the Blogger Quilt Festival. I have had so much fun admiring and looking at all the quilts on display so far. I just can't pick a favourite though...there is so much creativity and talent in the quilts displayed.
This quilt came about as I wanted a Kiwiana (things unique to New Zealand) wall hanging. I had had a long break from quilting due to bringing up a family and work committments, but a visit to a craft show last year got the quilting juices flowing again! This was the first quilt I made on my return to quilting.
Initially it was supposed to be just a small wall hanging but I just couldn't decide which charm squares to use. I wanted to incorporate designs that held special memories for me, so it is now a very large wall hanging!! I have used all NZ fabrics in this and came up with the design myself. I straight line quilted it mainly because I have never done FMQ, but I think the straight line quilting is perfect for this quilt.
It is now hanging in our family room. Lucky, we have a very big wall!!
Thanks Amy for hosting this fabulous festival.
