Lois' Kiwiana Stack n' Whack quilt
Welcome back to my little quilting corner. If you follow me on Facebook and now Instagram you will have seen the sneak peeks of Lois' quilt, finally I have got through some other quilts to show you Lois' New Zealand (Kiwiana) flavoured quilt!
Made for her great nephew in Canada from a fabulous selection of New Zealand, or what is commonly known as "Kiwiana" fabrics.
Lois wanted edge to edge quilting and let me choose something suitable, I went with 'Allure' which looks just like a Maori fish hook when I Googled 'Maori bone fish hook' the meaning was perfect for the person receiving this quilt : "when made from bone or greenstone they represent strength, good luck and safe travel across water".
Lois also pieced the backing from Kiwiana fabrics..................look at it, isn't it amazing! This lovely quilt is off to make a new home in Canada with a young man that will surely love it!
I have a couple more quilts to share with you but I will save those for another post, I will sign off with a few photo's of my last tramping trip.
Opua/ Russell loop was a real mix of everything really. We had a two ferry rides, some bush walking, some board walks, beach walking, coffees and icecreams! A lovely walk more than tramping/hiking.
