November Meeting 2010

Ok there was a lot of show n tell at the meeting so lets get straight into it.

Rikki Going's Ngaruru group had a sewing day with Otamatea Quilters, and they produced this log cabin top. They decided to donate it to Elaine Healey who finished it, and donated it Starship. Well done everyone great team effort.

Rikki also donated this top to Elaine, she added borders and polar fleece backing. It's off to Starship Children's Hospital too.

Elaine Healey got busy again for Starship. She made this with remnants and donated nine patch blocks from Relda Haigh.

Helen Barron said 'I have had 4 pinwheel blocks for years not knowing what to do with them. I had a sudden inspiration and made this quilt mostly from my stash.' This quilt is going to Christchurch for 'Quilts for kids, for Christmas'.

This fabric covered box and album was made by Rose Silvestor to keep photos and information of the projects she has made.

Sue Farrier made this cover for the rubbish bag holder on her campervan. It has dog paws quilted on the bottom too.

Rose Silvestor made this cushion using paper foundation piecing. I love the little dog in the centre.

I thought this was a handbag, I picked it up and was surprised how heavy it is. That's because it's a Door Stop! Hazel Phillips bought the kit last weekend at Calico Christmas and whipped it up for show n tell !

Maureen Jackson made this bag using Kiwiana fabric.

Petra Pilkington made this Christmas Stocking for her Godson. It will be his first Christmas. The bells on this stocking made the most wonderful sound like sleigh bells.

'John Dory' by Gaye Miller. It was inspired by an article in Quilting Arts magazine. It's made using freehand cut pieces, held in place with basting spray, then machine quilted. The only seam is the binding.

Carol Mayes bought this panel on a trip around Australia last year. She decided to make it into a bag as a nice reminder of her trip.

Marie Finnegan is getting ready for Christmas, she made this table runner at The Country Yard.

Barbara Storey won this kit donated by 'The Country Yard' in the raffles last month, and she has made it up already! It is her first attempt at machine quilting and binding. Well done Barbara it looks great.

This gorgeous bag was made by Carol Mayes. Carol said,"I saw this picture in a magazine & thought it was cute. I call it 'My Favourite Things'. "

Carmel Spray made this at a Robyn Burgess Class and has mounted it on a canvas board.

This is a scrap quilt made by Maureen Gray, it's backed with polar fleece and Maureen says 'finished at last!' We all know that good feeling when another UFO bites the dust.

Margaret O'Leary is making this for her granddaughters 21st Birthday. Margaret was inspired by Sandy Robinson's quilt she made for her son's 21st. Sue Farrier printed out the photos for Margaret. I'm sure Margaret's granddaughter she will treasure it.

Petra Pilkington has made this for a little girl called Caitlin. I'm sure she will love it. Petra has quilted it with designs by Leah Day.

And here's Nora Ellison-White our guest speaker. Nora spoke about her trips to Noumea.
