Show and Tell October 2010

Sorry everyone that it has taken a while to do this post. Life sometimes gets busy! Anyway into it now, I'm staring with a close up of the baby quilt made by Rikki Going. I really like this pattern and I think I'll have to make one someday.

Here's the full quilt. Rikki made it for a friends baby.

This baby quilt was made by Jennifer Cullan for a friends baby too.

These three quilts made by Lex Geange, and were started in a recent Kerry Glen class. This first one was made using a wedge template and a batik jelly roll.

This ones based on a drunkards path block. (I think I like this one best).

And third is this quilt's made using circle templates.   

'Rose Bouquet' by Terri Mills made from the book 'Bejewelled Quilts'

Here's a close up of a table runner made by Carmel Spray. It's made with 'Clarice Cliff' fabric, it's cheaper than the china!

This quilt was made by Paula Hatley, to raise funds for Hora Hora Primary School. It's going to be raffled, and I will bring tickets to the November meeting to sell. (Paula's grandchildren go to school at Hora Hora School.)
Below is a close up of the string pieced units. They are made using NZ themed fabric. So come see me next club day and buy your tickets! 

Kaye O'Hagan is pleased to have nearly finished this UFO. There is just the binding to sew down (it's pinned in photo). She started it in 2009 with fabric she bought from Wright Fabrics in Morrinsville. Below is a close up of one of the blocks, they are all hand embroidered.

'Cherry Blossom Scroll' made by Carmel Spray in a Robyn Burgess' Sashiko Workshop. It's a 70th Birthday present for Carmel's cousin. 

Elaine Healey has made this quilt for Starship (National Children's Hospital). I wonder how many quilts Elaine has made for Starship? It must be in the hundreds.

Wine bottle bag made by Irene Steyn for a friend. Must be for NZ wine only!

More by Irene. Coffee plunger and mug coasters, made using heat resistant batting for her daughters flat.

Babys ball made from hexagons and pentagons by Tess Harris.

The bag on the left is made by Marie Finnegan, she made it at The Country Yard.

And the bag on the right is Shelia Udjur's well travelled bag. It recently went with her to Penang, Phuket, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore & Austraila. 

And lastly Marion Roke made this bag. She saw the pattern in a magazine and thought it would look good in NZ fabrics. She said 'I put a bright coloured zip on the inside pocket, to make it easier to find in the dark depths'. That made me smile as I'm always losing things inside my handbag. Ok I'm having a cuppa now after that marathon post.    :-) 


  1. Kaye O'Hagan's quilt is just lovely! Are the embroidery blocks her own design, or did she use a pattern?

  2. Great projects! Thanks for sharing all of the great pictures!

  3. What a lot of lovely quilts etc to enjoy. I do so love that animal chils'd quilt with the ears and tails, what fun that must have been to make. Can you advise if it is a commercial pattern or from a mag?

  4. Jenny sorry Rikki has lost the pattern. Thinks it was in a magazine. I love it too, very clever with the ears & tails hanging over into other blocks.

  5. Rusty I've left a message for Kaye to get back to me, so hopefully I'll be able to email you soon.

  6. OK Rusty Bird and anyone else interested the pattern Kaye used was Garden of Life by Julie Lovell of Calico Farm Designs. I can't find it for sale by googling but I have an email address for Julie if you are interested, email me for it.


Thanks for writing a comment, I love getting feedback!
