Wynne’s beautiful flower quilt…..

I haven’t written about this quilt sooner as I knew Wynne was showing it in our exhibition.

Wynnes quilt

Wynne made his quilt over a number of years, I think five or six. The pattern by Margaret Matthews was published in the bi-monthly NZ Quilter magazine. The quilt is called “Spring Flowers” Parts of this quilt became Wynne’s portable project as she travelled New Zealand in her camper van. The series was started when she travelled with her husband and I know it holds special memories for her.The blocks have place names embroidered on them.  Wynne suggested that I could perhaps stipple the background of the blocks. I said “no”, I don’t stipple anything. Why would I stipple when I can do something much more elegant? In the borders I used a mixture of swirls and pebbles, for the blocks a much more sweeping, swirling style with pebbles around the place names. Lots of photos here, but I’m sure you will enjoy them.
