A couple of quilts I drooled over yesterday

Yesterday DH took me on a spur-of-the-moment trip to Wellington, so I could have a look around some of the tutors quilts that were displayed and a look through the two merchants malls, (while he went off to enjoy coffee with our daughter).
The workmanship and the ideas were really inspiring, and I left the tutors display very enthused. There were 2 more large exhibitions of quilts in Wellington to, but I didn't have time to get to those.
These are just a couple of snippets of some of the tutors work.





I also bought a few fat quarters of fabric, which you will probably see later and had a jolly time looking over everyone's shops.
In the mean time I hope you aren't eating too many Easter eggs? (my favs are the marshmellow ones covered in chocolate!! mmmmm)
