Hardanger Circa 1990

For 17 years (1977 - 1994) I lived in the small bauxite mining town of Nhulunbuy, Gove (population approx 3,000) in the Northern Territory, Australia. I had a wonderful career and life there, with many great friends and a great social life that we made for ourselves.

However, there was absolutely nothing available in the way of shops for crafts , so we bought our supplies when we flew out on leave. I was a self-taught hardanger enthusiast for a few months and treasure this piece I did. I really enjoy hardanger, but there are so many exciting quilts I want to make that hardanger is on the back-burner 'til I'm an OLD lady, LOL!

I have finished Step 2 of OC and have a little trimming to do, so shall post soon. I did a trial run on Step 3 today and it will be lovely to have a small number of units to do in this step.

Best wishes!

I experimented with hardanger many years ago and really enjoyed it. Also played with huck weaving, have you heard of it? Your hardanger piece is really beautiful, makes me want to dig mine out again some day.
