Timaru Patchwork and Quilters Exhibition.

My local Quilters club joined forces with the local pottery club and we're having an exhibition in one of the local galleries.  
The Aigantighe gallery is only small and a part of it is closed due to the need for earthquake proofing, so the display area is only quite small. There are currently a total of 34 quilts on display. And one of them is mine!
Tony and I went along for a quick look today and I took a few photos. Not many as I'm sure I have to go back and look again.
But here are todays high lights.
Autumn Leaves by club member Jeanette Hawker.
You can't really see it here but those leaves are 3D and very delicate looking.
Bright Sparks is also by Jeanette.
Here is my quilt, it is my version of Gail Pans 
Wish You Well.
Is a Maori word meaning block or cube. 
Paula interpreted it beautifully with these Maori fabrics. 
Villas at Dawn 
Was designed and created by Annette Davers.
Winter Sunset.
This lovely pioece was designed and made by the club president and the reason I'm a member of the club. My pal Angela Simpson. She showed me the photo that inspired the piece, a lovely image of the sun setting beyond the trees at the bottom of her garden. 
And speaking of gardens, here is Raelene McLean's 
Round the garden.
I love the Light Houses.
That was all the quilty photos I took. We also had a look at the pottery exhibition, there were some interesting pieces and this one in particular caught my eye.
I'm sure I'll be going back. As there are things I didn't see, being towed along behind Tony. LOL
And I have to head off to work soon.
I hope you're enjoying your weekend.
