Today’s preview from Australia Wide Six is Tumbleweed by Norma Slabbert, a quilt maker and writer from New Zealand. Now semi-retired, Norma spends her days on all things related to quilt making: doing the stitches, reading, researching, judging, exhibiting, and writing on the subject. Norma was the 2012 recipient of the Aotearoa Quilters Scholarship Award and she has won many quilt awards in the past twenty five years. She is working towards her fourth solo quilt exhibition.
