A small Place called Norfolk Island

I have had some fun working on a quilt for Kay of Norfolk Island.  I had to post the quilt to her and am very relieved to hear Kay has got her quilt all safe and sound.

Now Norfolk Island is a very small Island between Australia and  New Zealand.  It looks very beautiful and serene and has a very interesting history to it.  It is thought to have been first settled by Polyenesian people then abandoned, then twice a Convict Penal Colony for the British.  Then some of the descendants of the infamous Bounty ship mutineers moved to the Island with the Queen of Englands blessing.

Here is a site on Norfolk Island with more information, have a read it is fascinating.

Anyway back to Kays Poppy quilt.  It is from Australian Patchwork and Quilting magazine.  It was published over a few months.  There looks like a lot of piecing involved, but certainly worth the work.
