Just as the Australian Quilt Project brought some of its Blocks over to New Zealand for the first Unfolding of the New Zealand Quilt, the New Zealand Quilt Project has sent blocks to other countries for special Displays.
Below are photos of some of these Displays, arranged in chronological order.
3rd Display of the Names Project, Washington DC., 11 - 13 October 1992.For the third Display of the entire American Quilt in Washington DC., 17 other countries, including New Zealand, also had Blocks on display.
The Display covered 15 acres, had a 'staff' of 4,500 volunteers, and was viewed by over 400,000 people.
20,000 Panels from the Names Project (U.S.A.) were on display and it took 24 hours and 2 minutes to read the names of those on the Panels.
5,000 new Panels were presented, including at least 4 for the New Zealand Quilt.
Sydney, Australia, International Unfolding Ceremony.On 22nd May, 1993, the Australian Quilt hosted an International Unfolding Ceremony in Sydney. One block from the New Zealand Quilt was there.
Whitefish, Montana, Quilt Project DisplayTwo regular visitors to New Zealand from the United States, Peg and Bill Rice, became involved with the New Zealand Quilt Project during one of their visits. When they heard of a Quilt Display in their home town in 1994, the New Zealand Quilt Project created a Panel for them to present to the United States Quilt.
The design was in the form of an airmail letter envelope with New Zealand icons on it and the then Quilt Project Logo forming the 'postage stamp'.
Yokohama, JapanThis Display was held in August 1994. Blocks 7 and 10 of the New Zealand Quilt were on display.
