quilts across the ranges

I  spent the morning at the 'Quilts Across The Ranges' quilt show today,
the Western Quilters Circle Annual Quilt Show here in Auckland NZ.
It's always nice to see what others are making
and so great to catch up with quilters I hadn't seen for a while . . .

A challenge from "all things Patchwork" just to use the one fabric

and a second version in a different colour scheme, using a Kaffe cabbage fabric . . .

Sandra and her team from 'House of Patchwork' were there
with a pretty display of their latest Tilda fabrics . . .

 and Cheryl from 'all things patchwork' had a colourful display . . .

and Kerryn from the country yard up near Whangarei had a great display too . . .

I'll leave you with a few pics of my favourites from the show . . .

A lovely way to spend a Sunday morning
Happy Sewing,


  1. Some very talented quilters out there. Looks like a fun day out.

  2. Quilt shows are always a treat, and this one seems especially good. I've been saving my husbands shirts but want to add some others. It strikes me how different the fabrics we wear are from the fabrics we purchase new for quilts.

  3. It really was a lovely way to spend a morning! Time well spent!

  4. Wow, this is beautiful! Thank you for sharing this show with us!

  5. As I read through your post and saw all those wonderful quilts, inside I was just saying "Oooooh" over and over again! Absolutely magnificent: the ideas, the execution, the amount of quilts entered by just one quilter, Sue Hagan.
    I noted her Blue log cabin quilt made from 2nd hand fabrics was 60th in a series! 60!!!! What a great show to have attended. Lucky girl, Linda 😊 "Succulent" appealed to me as well. Gorgeous!

  6. Thanks so much for sharing these photos with us Linda - I'm another who fell for "Succulent"!

  7. Lots of fun and beautiful quilts. Thanks for sharing! Not sure I could pick just one favorite from this set.

  8. I think I like the Medallion quilt the best! Wowsers, it has a lot going on.:) Thanks so much for sharing!

  9. Lovely display method and what gorgeous quilts!

  10. Such a diverse range of quilts! Thanks for sharing a great exhibition.
