Our Country features great places, scenery and many diverse cultures. We also have a huge collection of New Zealand fabrics that feature many of the aspects of life here in New Zealand. Here are a few that show case our Maori culture and of course the silver fern. Ngaire
What could be more typical of my part of the Australian East Coast? The post and rail fence.
I created a Confetti Landscape background and painted fabric for the fence. Raw edge applique.
I am enjoying seeing all of your creations and I look forward to receiving them.
Thank you in anticipation.
It was easy for me to decide that my quilt would be about the Aussie obsession with sport.
My after thought of adding the sign to Rio seemed like a good idea at the time, then I realised that the rower is heading in the wrong direction! I hope I haven't affected the chances of our rowing team in Rio. Go green and gold!
Summer 2016 was glorious in our little seaside village of Ohope. The Pohutukawas were amazing much better than my rendition here.
The Island is Whale Island which sits a few kilometers off our coast, once owned by Maori but now a Department of Conservation reserve, with Kiwi and Tuatara and a refuge for sea birds. This is what NZ ers think of when we think of our country. Hope you enjoy your quilts Lynn
I love the scenery in New Zealand, especially the mountains,lakes and sea. We are not very far from spectacular views wherever we travel in this wonderful country of ours.
Enjoy your snowy mountains reflected in the lake, Lynn. Cheers Anna
