The reason why we're in New Plymouth - 27 July 2007
These quilts are ours. Uncle Fred was Nan's cousin who lived for most of his life in New Plymouth before shifting to Thames via Tauranga. We inherited his house and the quilts, of which only a small portion is on display.
Since about 1914 until the 1970s (this top one is unfinished) he made quilts... as well as other things.

The entrance to the exhibition. It opens on Sunday and they'd almost finished preparing it. Diana let me take photos, but, because of the glare, I didn't bother using a flash.
