Here's the Show and Tell from the August meeting. Remember you can click on all the photo's to 'embiggen' them to see more detail. :-)
'My Shattered Nine Patch' by Maureen Jackson. All fruit and vege fabric.
This is the first free motion quilting that Petra Pilkington has done! The quilt is a gift for a friend who lives at the beach. Close up below of free motion quilting and one of the embroideries on the quilt.
This is Petra's first quilt made last year. It has a lot of beautiful lace on it, so there's a close up below so you can see detail better. A lot of the laces on this quilt are handmade lace, some were made by her mother in law.
'Butterflies' by Terri Mills, made with blocks from the first patchwork course she took in 2007.
'Dazzling Dogs' by Beryl McDowell, block of the month from Grandmothers Garden a long time ago. Now finished! Close up below.

Shelia Ujdur showing us 2 cot quilts she has in progess, as they will be finished and sent off before the next meeting. They are for Shelia's new grandchild.
Here's Elaine hiding behind a quilt! Val's Gal's satellite group had two of their members in hospital recently, so they made quilts for them. Above is one of the quilts made for Frances Dixon, who is out of hospital now and on the mend. The other quilt is with Yvonne Wright in hospital. I'm sure having a special quilt made by her close friends is a great comfort to her.
This is a charity quilt made by Fiona Carter, for a special little girl.
'Flying Pigs' by Elaine Healey made for Starship (National Children's Hospital).
Blocks made by Bernice Spear & given to Elaine Healey to make a quilt for Starship Hospital.
'Ballerinas' for Starship Hospital by Elaine Healey
And here is Lynda and Elaine showing us quilts made by Yvonne Davies for Starship Hospital. There were several more made by Yvonne, sorry my cameras batteries ran out!
I didn't get a photo of the charity quilt I made either, but it's the bright one hanging on the wall top left of this photo!
