'Quiltgruppe Mönchaltorf' is
an association with 19 members, founded in 1988. We meet once a month in a local school. We like
to talk about our hobby, learn new techniques, look at own works or those of
others ('show and tell' or on photos, digital shows),
organise exhibitions or participate at various quilting
We are in contact with our sister quilters of the
"Willows Quilting Group" in Melton, Australia: We exchanged four quilt
challenges with this group. Themes: "Floriade", "Bäume - Trees", "Small
Creatures" and "weather". All A4-sized quilts were shown in Australia
and in Switzerland. The "weather" project will be shown twice in 2018. Another challenge is under way...
In 2011 Erika met Leyette, a quilter from New Zealand. Together with the "Fencible Quilters of Howick", NZ
and the "Nefti Quilters" from Neftenbach a total of 29 challenge quilts
were produced. This
challenge was exhibited in New Zealand and at our jubilee show in Mönchaltorf as
well as at a Nefti Quilters show in Neftenbach, before the Kiwi quilts found their way home in
