The New Zealand Quilt

I purchased charm squares and fat quarters in New Zealand, all with a Kiwi flair: ferns, birds, Maori images, sheep--what is this thing I have for sheep?--shantytown scenes, and kiwis, of course!

When the fabrics were laid side by side, they didn't play nice, so I had to find a way to make them work together. I'm putting them into a twist and turn setting. The next framing will be olive green--don't you just LOVE Moda Marbles?

This project was set aside for quite some time, until a UFO challenge was issued on quilting forum. I'm supposed to get it done by August 31... hmmm.

your kiwi twist quilt looks great it sure is a great way to use the fabrics. I haven't seen them used this way before.
