Show and Tell, May 2010

This is the completed top of another raffle quilt, it was made by the "Seams2B" satellite group for our July Quilt Show.

"Spring Bright " by Pam Carr made from of a pack of 5 inch squares, hand applique with yoyos.

This lovely Red Work quilt was made by Sue Farrier. She bought the pattern last year at Calico Christmas quilt show, so it hasn't taken her long. Close up of one of the blocks below, the stitching is perfect.

This evening bag was made by Shirley Julian. It was started in a collage class with Hazel Foot, who is teaching a mixed media class here in September. See Shelia for details.

The clown quilt was made by Wendy Legarth, to 'reduce her stash' a good reason! And the red child's quilt was made by Maureen Gray, its backed with polar fleece, and is hand quilted.


This quilt made by Helen Barnes is hand stitched and embroidered. Helen made the blocks from the book "Affairs of the Heart" and the colours are fabulous. It was her last UFO, so she is now deciding what to start next.

Sandy Robinson has been practising her longarm machine quilting, on these two tops she purchased at Calico Christmas. Looks like she has the hang of it now, the quilting was really nice. I thought that was a good idea to practise on a top you hadn't made yourself, no guilt if it doesn't work out. Sandy is really pleased with them and also their mitred bindings that she has just learnt to do.

Since our meeting was on Mothers Day weekend we asked members to bring any quilts they had made for their mothers. Carmel Spray bought this sampler that she made when she first started quilting. It was made for her Aunt who was very special to Carmel and like a Mother to her.

Lynne Wilson made this quilt for her Mother, it was made from the book "Fast Quilts from Fat Quarters". Lynne machine quilted it using a 'quilt as you go' technique, she said it made it much easier, and she would do this again.

These last two are works in progress from the "Wot Knots" day (post below). The top one is made by Elaine Healey, and the lower one is by Kath Hunt.

  17. I can't believe the hand applique on "Spring Delight." If I can't machine stitch it, it is a pretty sure bet that it won't get done at all! (EQ7)
