Aotearoa Quilters had their silent auction at the Symposium venue. My quilt 'Out My Window II' was purchased by one of my quilting friends.

Aotearoa Quilters also had their Purple 12x12 challenge at the Square Edge Gallery, as well as the 'Growth' Challenge. Nice to see my quilt 'Increasingly Modern' again - its been touring New Zealand.

At Te Manawa was the 'Living Colour' Exhibition. My two favourites, mainly because I enjoy the Monarch butterfly and Irises:
|'Consider the Flowers of the Field',|
|'Yum Yum', Kay D Haerland|
Also at Te Manawa was an exhibition of Canadian quilts by Fibre Art Network.
|'Tallheo Cannery', Terry Phillips|
|'Greens Point Lighthouse', Leslie Forbes|
|'Canadian Hats', Janet Bednarczyk|
Taylor Jenson Fine Arts had a very vibrant and fun exhibition of 40 quilts by Caohagan Islanders. To read about Caohagan quilts click here. Unfortunately I didn't take any photos. A small selection of the quilts will be shown at Minerva Gallery, in Wellington, from Thursday 19th February.
Finally, I missed out on seeing Merrilyn George's exhibition 'Set Apart' on Suzanne Aubert - I just ran out of time.
