Aotearoa Quilters Lime Challenge

I loved seeing all the lime challenge quilts at the Great New Zealand Quilt Show in Rotorua. I was really pleased that I had two entries in the mix. 

The winning quilt was made by Camilla Watson and it was amazing.

There were three or four Merit prizes, and I liked this one by Fyvie Murray.

Here's some of my other favourites:

by Brenda Gael Smith

by Lynne Rowe

by Helen Beaven

by Anne Adams 

by Shirley Sparks

by me - Wendy Welsh

(You can read more about my entries in my previous post here.)

So you can see that there are many different ways to interpret a theme.  

These 12" x 16" minis quilts will travel around New Zealand for a year now.  If they come to a town near you, do try and see them.  I expect that they will be in Auckland at the Auckland Quilt Guild Festival of Quilts on 5 - 7 November 2021.  

I'll tell you more about the Great New Zealand Quilt Show in my next post, but right now I'm off to Christchurch for a cross stitch retreat.  

Now it's time for the Peacock Party.  Feel free to link up a recent blog post below.

Those minis are lovely. How many were submitted for the show? I'm impressed with the interpretations and absolutely love the way each one is presented. I look forward to more about your trip to the quilt show.

I love all the green. Such pretty quilts.

I think the choice of a lime-colored theme was spot-on! Though, I also believe not all lime colors are created equally. It's difficult to find a pretty lime in a solid. Your entry is beautiful, and looks so much like "you." :-) I'm glad that a quilt show could be held in the first place, and happy that you could attend. Thanks for sharing the lovelies.
