Mönchaltorf' is an association with 20 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 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 was 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 2014.
