Show & Tell, & Club Meeting September 2011

I hope you managed to buy some bargains from our Merchant Itch to Stitch Bernina. I know several members did. Don't worry my lips are sealed (in case any husbands read this)!! What did you think of the Go! Baby Cutter? I thought it was really cool, if you didn't get to see it, pop into Bernina and check it out. Also while you are there remember to enter the contest that Cushla announced. It is exclusive to WP&Q Club members, and closes on the 6th of October.

Go! Baby.
It was only a small Show and Tell this time which worked out good, because we had less space to hang quilts with Bernina at one end of the gym, and the schools tiered seating taking up a fair bit of space at the other end of the gym. So just the perfect amount of Show and Tell actually  :-)                                

The first four quilts are club charity quilts, so have a look and see if you can see the blocks you made.Two members Wendy Magee & Jennifer Cullen have quilted these next four quilts for the club to donate. Thank you  both very much for your time, thread, skills etc. It is appreciated

Home Sweet Home, made by Pam Carr. It's a row by row quilt. Hand appliqued and hand quilted.
The quilting is beautiful,  I especially like the echo quilting on the cream background.

This quilt is made by Maureen Gray, she said it is made using some of her hexagons,
 but she still has plenty more!

ABC Quilt made by Helen Barron. 
Helen has made this for a friend to have at her house, for when the grandchildren come to stay.
 Helen said she has too many to make individual quilts for them!

Angels at Christmas by Pam Carr.
It's an 'older project' found at the back of her cupboard when she recently moved house!
Ready for Christmas now  :-)

Poppies by Gaylyn Barclay.
 Gaylyn started this in a workshop with tutor Caroline Sharkey earlier this year.
Now these two bags were made by mother and daughter  Gaye Miller & Jessica Fraser. Gaye simplified a pattern from a recent Homespun magazine so she could teach it to girls from Kamo Girls Brigade.
Now I think this one is Jessica's Bag (she helped her Mum teach the class)

And this I think this bag is Gaye's.
 (Gaye let me know if I have got that wrong, so I can correct it!)

Gaye has been busy! She has also made these cushions
 for a friend who is leaving on a exchange for a year  to Canada. 

Dorothy Terpstra made these Doves from a Patchwork & Stitching Magazine.
They are a gift for  a friend.
Dorothy also made a beautiful set of Placemats for herself using a great Coffee Themed fabric. They were really nice and I'd like to have taken them home! But sorry I forgot to take a photo of them. 

I hope you enjoyed the meeting last Saturday. If you are looking for the video of hand basting that Lynne and I demo'ed at club, I posted it a couple of days ago click here to go to that post.
