Show and Tell March 2010

This wall hanging is by Lynne Wilson. Pattern is by Jenny Hunter who was our guest speaker at Regional Day last year. (It's in an issue of NZ Quilter) Made with the most wonderful colours, it just glowed. Sorry photo is a bit washed out as there was a glass door just to left.

This is by Lynne too. She was asked to bring this quilt, as its never been to Show and Tell before. It is the first quilt Lynne ever made. It was made in night classes taught by Donna Ward in Hamilton, a few years ago. A lot of complex blocks for a beginner, you must be a fast learner Lynne. Sorry the top of quilt is cut off in photo, I'll have to try harder with my photography.

Helen Barron has made and hand quilted, this large bed quilt for Hospice to sell. These little pigs are very cute. The person who buys this will be very lucky. Quilts are on sale at the Allsorts Hospice Shop (Whangarei) on the first thursday of every month.

This quilt was made by Robyn Halverson from the book "Skinny Quilts & Table Runners". She hand dyed most of the fabrics herself. She also dyed a white lumpy wool to match, and couched it in spirals using her new couching foot.

Good on you for using your new foot Robyn. I've had one a few months now, and not used it, but I think you have inspired me have a go, Leeann.

This Quilt is by Sandy Robinson. It was started in the "Serendipity Stars" class with Barbara Bilyard last year. This is Sandy's first completed quilt, and also the first quilt she has quilted using her longarm quilting machine. Well done Sandy on finishing your first quilt.

This wall hanging wasn't in show and tell but we cornered Gaye Miller on the way out and snapped it. Its a McKenna Ryan design. Gaye said it was a challenge, as not the usual colours she works with.


  1. Hi Leeann

    Congratulations on your new blog, it looks very professional and you have done a great job.

    I too have one of those couching feet and are yet to use it. Should really get it out and have a play with it.

  2. Love the Skinny Quilts book, and it's companion (Skinny Quilts..II). I recently took a couching class and hope to make the one pictured in your blog soon. Enjoyed reading your blog, and all the photos.

  3. That serendipity quilt is amazing....
