This beautiful mini quilt by Sandra Killin really does reflect what the country side is like at Kapiti. Those plants at the front are toitoi, a New Zealand native pronounced toitoi.
Oh, it's the same area as I went to at Easter when my parents were staying with us, and we went to the beach that day too. You can see those beach photos here. This was my view at lunch today - that's Kapiti Island, a nature reserve. Ignore the skatepark in the foreground.
I was really taken by the mini art quilts on display today. I think that's what I want to focus on once I get my current WIP pile under control. I haven't previously been drawn to art quilts, but maybe my tastes are changing, because I really liked a lot of what I saw today. Here's some of my favourites. None of these were more than 40" high, and the square ones were about 20" x 20".

These quilts have so much detail packed into very small spaces. They were just beautiful.
