Nancy made 2 quilts from fabric she brought back from a vacation to New Zealand--one for her and one for her husband. They'll be cosy watching hockey on TV this winter!
The first one I quilted with hook curls, which I think look like Maori Greenstone fishhooks, so I figured that was pretty appropriate for a NZ quilt.
This is the only photo I took of that quilt, so you'll just have to imagine an entire quilt quilted as above.
For the second quilt, I asked Nancy if she wanted the same quilting design or something different, and if different could I go with a more modern design. She said yes to both.
This design is from Christina Cameli's book---I've used several designs from that book --but not yet the cover design, which is what had convinced me to buy the book. Still waiting for the right quilt, I guess.
and here are some closeups of some of the fabrics
Nancy said she was just buying bits of fabric she liked, with no real plan.
