Show n Tell June 2016

Well, I think this is a first. There was one quilt hanging for Show n Tell at the June meeting!
I was expecting a few more as the Club hosted Susan Brubaker Knapp for a workshop in late May. But I suppose we will see the work from that class at our July meeting.

Fiona Carter made this for one of her Grand Daughters, quilted by Wendy McGee.
This is a lovely panel and Fiona has added borders to make it a great size to snuggle under. I’m sure her Grand Daughter will love it.

Hubby and I had a quick trip to Sydney, to catch up with our Eldest Son and his lovely Girlfriend.
We also enjoyed lots of Ferry and Train rides, as well as enjoying the Vivid Festival

When I did come home I caught up on some of my sewing. Oscar helped by protecting my blocks from intruders (my Hubby!)

Hopefully I’ll have more quilt stuff to show you later in the week.
Bye for now.

I had a few quilters asked me about my Split Nine Patch Quilt as they would like to make their own version. 
So I made an Information Sheet up. 
Use THIS LINK to go to a printable version, which has more lots more details.

This is the Split Nine Patch Block. My Block finished at 6 inches.
It is a very versatile block that can be set multiple ways.
Here are a few I drew up in EQ7
