New Zealand Prints


This quilt belongs to Donna and she purchased this quilt kit while in New Zealand visiting her daughter and family.  What a great souvenir and the fabrics prints depict the plants and animals of the area.   She asked a friend to piece the top for her and then brought it to me to have quilted.   We thought the panto Mimosa would work well on this quilt and since the backing was black we used Black Poly Select batting from Quilter’s Dream.

Well our warm weather didn’t last long, woke up to –3’ this morning and the open water along the shoreline is frozen over again.   I’m sure it will melt quickly in today sunshine and then all the ducks that have returned will have somewhere to swim besides the ditches.



  1. Отлично! Прекрасное одеяло. Стежка супер.

  2. Wow! You are a busy girl. Beautiful job. What a nice reminder of her trip.

  3. Gorgeous quilt! I love this panto, but haven't used it more than once. Think I need to make a quilt to use it in, it looks so great on this quilt!

  4. Kathy, I love that panto, looks awesome!

  5. How funny to see a bunch of Kiwiana fabrics pop up on your blog. I know all these fabrics so well. I used to work in a quilt shop.
    Finished quilt looks great.
