'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 events.
We are in contact with our sister quilters
of the "Willows Quilting Group" in Melton, Australia: We exchanged
quilt challenges with this group. Themes:
"Floriade", "Bäume - Trees", "Small Creatures",
"weather" and "under water"
. All A4-sized quilts
were shown in Australia and in Switzerland. The last
challenge however has yet to be shown in Switzerland. The next one will soon
be "under construction"
In 2011 Erika met Leyette, a
quilter from New Zealand. Together with the "Fencible Quilters of Howick",
NZ and the "Nefti Quilters" from Neftenbach CH
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 2014.
