Show n Tell, October 2011
Olive Bryson has been making these bow tie blocks over a few years out of 1930's fabric.
It is machine quilted on a long arm machine by her daughter in law from Tauranga.
Excellent work by both of them.
Dorothy Terpstra made this beautiful baby quilt. This is the third one she has made using this pattern.
She has been enjoying using up her scraps making them and loves how colourful they are.
I love the flowers on the girl bears.
This is a UFO from 2006, and Beryl McDowell is pleased to have finished it. It is a really fun quilt of the animals all tucked up in bed in the barn. Each animal has something special with them.
Close up's below of the Rooster with his alarm clocks, and the Cow with her glass of milk.
This lovely quilt is Pat Woodman's first quilt. I'm sure there will be many more.
This quilt has been made by 'The Loose Ends' satellite group, for Project Promise (local Hospital fundraiser).
It was a real team project with Elaine preparing the butterflies, everyone blanket stitching them by hand. Margaret sewed the blocks together, Connie cut the borders/binding & provided the batting. Then Helen hand quilted & finished it. Well done Ladies!
Elaine Healey made these two pink quilts (above & below) for Starship (National Children's Hospital).
Elaine & Yvonne Davis have been making quilts for children at Starship for years.
Yvonne had made another four quilts too, but we didn't have room to hang them at Show n Tell. I didn't manage to get photos of them. SORRY. But they were great.
Shelia Udjur & Pam Carr are getting ready for Christmas already!
Shelia made this black and white wallhanging from a pattern she bought at Calico Xmas a couple of years ago.
And Pam has made this neat Christmas Stocking for her Grandson Cooper. Pam made the stocking at a class at 'The Country Yard'. I like how the bear is made from wool fabric, and Coopers name is added using little letter beads. ( click on the photo's to have a closer look)
This piece was inspired by the 'Wearable Art Awards' by Petra Pilkington.
These two were made by Petra too. These started as an old evening skirt, were stencilled, and embellished with washers and old used tea bags! (click on them for a closer look)
Dawn Dahlberg made this lovely wall hanging in a recent class taught by Mary Transom.
Dawn also added 3D waterlilly flowers.
And this was made by Margaret O'Leary at the same class with Mary Transom.

Jacqui Karl recently taught her 'Layered Leaves' workshop and these are some of the finished wallhanging. There was another one at Show n Tell made by Shelia Udjur, but sorry Shelia the photo was just too fuzzy to use. Everyone who did this class really enjoyed it, and commented on what a good tutor Jacqui is.
