Clubs Mini Symposium July 2017

Last month we had a mini Symposium at the Quilt Club. It was a day full of demo's by some club members, and yummy soup for lunch made by committee members.
Here are some photos from the day.

There were many more demo's (these are just the ones I got photos of). 
The day was a success with everyone learning something new. 

I won't be at the August meeting, (I'm going to Paihia for the jazz Festival that weekend) so there will be no August Show n Tell on the blog sorry. 

To finish, here is Oscar guarding my knitting for me.

Show n Tell June 207

Wow, it's already July, so I thought I better post the June Show n Tell. Not everything is here. Sometimes people don't want their items on the blog and sometimes the photos don't come out etc. So sorry if your creation has been missed.

Shelia Ujdur made these lovely native bird wallhangings as gifts.
There was another but I spared you the blurry photo!


Pam Carr made this lovely stitchery quilt. It was a Block of the Month from the Country Yard.

'Paws n Claws' made by Rikki Going. See the detail photo of the Lion below.

Community Quilt made with donated blocks from Club Members.

Show N Tell Mat 2017

Gosh it's nearly the end of the month so I thought I better get around to posting the Show n Tell from the May Meeting!
Autumn Carpet by Lex Geange. 
Lex wrote  "I bought this pattern many years ago, designed by Ruth Powers. I began to construct it 2 years ago. It was fun to work on, having at least 10 different foundation pieced blocks. Sandy from Bernina quilted it for me- she is to be congratulated on producing such an intricate and professional finish. I am really thrilled with the end product"
Made by Kay Watson in Lynne Maddens Scrap Quilt Class

Made by Kerinda Robb in the same Scrap Quilt Class taken by Lynne Madden. Kerinda has changed the placement of her light and dark fabrics so her quilt looks very different from Kay's.

Dresden Plate Quilt made by Lynda Parker for her Mothers 80th Birthday (2 years ago). She will receive it this Mothers Day.

Detail of Lynda's quilt so you can see the lovely quilting.
