Natural Wonders of the World

Quilters and Patchworkers of Otago were excited to recently host an exhibition of “Natural Wonders of the World”, an international quilt challenge.

Aotearoa Quilters were invited to participate in the International challenge by NHQG – a Japanese quilting group. Thirty quilters from New Zealand, France and Japan are involved, ninety in total.

Each quilter was given a topic – a natural wonder. The same topics were used in each of the three countries resulting in three different perspectives on each topic.

The quilts have been exhibited in Japan and are now here in New Zealand. They will travel to France in August for their exhibition in September.

All the quilts from New Zealand, Japan and France, 30 from each country, were displayed in Dunedin in May 2018.
