Onward, to Grandmother's Garden

Leaving Auckland behind, our group traveled south to Hamilton, stopping at Waitomo Caves to view the glowworms. Our first quilt stop was at Grandmother's Garden where two large, incredibly mellow dogs seem to take all the visitors in stride, and a large cat as well.
Grandmother's Garden opened in 1984. It was the inspiration of Hazel Wolff who had just returned from living in America where she had become 'hooked' on patchwork and quilting. Animals are an obvious passion of Hazel's as evidenced by this fun quilt that hangs in her classroom.
