A little while ago, Lily sent me an email requesting an appliqué pattern of my Tui (a native New Zealand bird) that she had seen on my blog (or maybe Pinterest?) and also asking if I had a Kiwi pattern. I drew and wrote them up for her and sent them off.
Lily was kind enough to send me a picture of her finished quilt. I was so impressed that I wrote back asking permission to share her picture and her story and she generously agreed. Lily wrote:
Remember me? you very kindly sent me the pattern for your Tui bird together with the Kiwi and another.
I have finished my quilt for my friend and sent it over-seas. She has got delivery of the quilt last week and the first thing she did was cry - she loved it ! Phew it was such a challenge for me being new to applique but in the end I was glad it turned out ok. You will see that I have used Jenny Hunter designs out of NZ Quilter which I could get back copies from our library. I have been in touch with Jenny Hunter and will also be sending her a copy of this e-mail.
