Today's Show n Tell was Large! This was our first meeting back since the holidays, and I can see I was 'lazy' compared to you busy ladies!
A new Member Verity Baines made has gorgeous quilt for her daughters wedding. John Nielsen quilted it for her and check out the back below! Isn't that great fabric? And I love the use of more blocks on the back too.
This little sampler quilt was made by Sonya Prchal.
Lynne Wilson made this bag from a pattern in Down Under Quilts magazine, with fabric from the Fabric Barn's big sale.
'My Succulent Garden' by Lynne O'Donnell. The photos are tissue paper prints, & the wall hanging was started in Hazel Foot's Class last year.
Margaret Linsay has been busy over the holidays and made two 'Turning Twenty' quilts. This blue one above and the orange and black one below.
Margaret also made this bag to take her cutting board to workshops. Margaret bought the fabric for this bag, and the black/orange fabric at the Wellington Symposium. I must confess I bought the same fabric but haven't done anything with them yet!
Now this was hard the photograph as it was on a table, so sorry the tails are cut off!
'Celtic Peacocks' by Sue Gillard. Sue said these are a 'stop-go' project. It has been on her bedroom wall for about 9months, after she put it up for a 'quick' look! It is reverse applique.
This bag is made by Gaye Miller, she said there are more pockets for her to lose stuff in! I really like the frill.
On one of or hot days recently Gaye & her daughter had a sewing day and made these cushion covers as a gift for her sister. The one above was made by Gaye.
And this one is made by Gaye's daughter Jessica Fraser.
And this one was made by Jessica's Nanny Lyn.
Donna Rowan recently moved up from Christchurch, and joined the club today. She bought several wonderful quilts to share with us. I really like how this strippy quilt above was quilted with circles and zig zags.
Donna made this in a Class taken by Donna Ward.
This quilt of Donna's was very popular, as we all thought it was a great way of showcasing precious button, or keepsakes.
Here's a close up so you can see how each button is framed.
Love the colours in this wall hanging. And I really liked the 'big stitch' hand quilting (detail below) done with embroidery cotton on this quilt made by Donna.
Terri Mills printed her photo's of Russian Cathedrals onto silk to make this wall hanging.
And this is Terri's wall hanging made in Sonya's Silhouette/Fabric Painting Class.
Shirley Mellsop bought a pack of fat quarters at our Exhibition last year, and has made this table runner with them. This is Shirley's first quilt! Well done I'm sure it's the first of many.
'Maia's Doll Quilt'.Made by Shelia Ujdur for her grand daughter birthday. In the bag there are clothes for Maia to dress the dolls (like paper dolls). Close up below.
Petra Pilkington made this from Friends and Families donated Jeans. It will be raffled at the 'Rely for Life' (Cancer Society Fund Raiser). I love how she sewed the zips in the corner!
And finally I saw Lois Myshrall sewing on the binding of this quilt and said it had to be in show n tell. Hopefully she didn't feel too bullied!
We all love seeing each others work, so a BIG THANKS to everyone for sharing.
I'm going to the quilt show in Orewa tomorrow so I better sign off now. But I'll take lots of photo's tomorrow too. Bye
