WRAP you eyes AROUND THESE works of BEAUTY!!! Coming from New Zealand!

midgetmagic.blogspot.com is my banner for today's giveaway entries!  I had no idea when I started this fun project last week how much delight I would glean from it and I thank you for supporting my CELEBRATION!!!  The quilts below are a feast for all of us. Maree is.........Magic!!!!

And this is the sweet email that tells the story behind the quilts.....

"These are two quilts that are pretty special, they are with my daughter Em and Jen.  Em's is the lovely ocean blues, greens and aquas- lovely jewels colours and is based on a pacific design by a NZ quilt designer and friend, Donna Ward.  I made this for Em for her 21st and we flew over to Canada to celebrate with her.The quilt for Jen is a stylized interp of our native Nikau palm and I backed it with polar fleece so it could be really snuggly. Both hold a whole lot of Mumsy's love so that the girls can wrap them up in my love even though I am on the other side of the world."


And that is why we quilt!.....at least 1 fabulous reason if you ever need to convince someone of the vitality of this art!

I love that I am headed to the desert wilderness this morning to visit my clients and these fabrics remind me of the warmth of my homeland and the greens of Maree's homeland....A GODWINK FOR SURE!!!!  How fortunate are Em and Jen to have been gifted these works of art?  ENJOY and Ciao for now!
