Natural Wonders of the World

Quilters and Patchworkers of Otago are excited to 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, will be on display in Dunedin at The H D Skinner Annex, Otago Museum, 361 Great King Street Dunedin (Old Dunedin North Post Office) from Friday 11 May 2018 to Sunday 13 May. The opening hours are 10am to 5pm daily.

This is a unique opportunity to compare styles of the 3 countries as the 30 subjects are interpreted in different ways.
