Show N Tell December 2011

Hi everyone I've been MIA for a while, because of a trip to see my Mother. The trip involved late planes, two missed buses, and a bus with a flat tyre! Enough said, definitely driving down next time.
So now that life is back to normal (is there such a thing?)
I thought I'd better post Decembers Show n Tell while it is still December!

Jenny Gough started this a few years ago as part of her groups '96 piece challenge'. Yes there had to be at least 96 different fabrics in the project. She is teaching herself to machine quilt, and this is the first large project she has done. (And done very well too)

This is Dorothy Tersptra's amazing Australian Flower 'Balitmore'. It took 4 years to complete, & is hand appliqu├ęd, and machine quilted by Dorothy.
This quilt won the Viewers Choice recently at The Country Yard's Exhibition.

Here's a couple of close up's so you can see the beautiful details. I love the bottle brush flowers below.

Lynne Wilson made this lovely quilt for her brother. This is actually the back of the quilt (sorry I didn't get a photo of the front, but it was made using fabric's that related to all his favourite things, like fishing etc.
Around the edges above Lynne has appliqued family photos.

This is the first quilt made by Raewyn. She has made this for her grandson and Sandy Robinson has quilted it for her.

Marie Finegan made this beautiful small quilt. Close up of the hand embroidered centre block below.


Donna Rowan made this for her niece for Christmas. It is a Lynnette Anderson pattern, called 'Live Your Dreams'.
Sorry I forgot to get a close up of the beautiful embroidery, arrgh!

Shelia made this set of placemats as a Xmas present for her son and daughter in law. She loves lady birds (daugther in law) so when Shelia found this fabric she thought it was perfect.

And lastly Sonya Prchal bought this sample she has made for a machine quilting class, that she hopes to teach in 2012. Click and have a look at the detail its amazingly detailed.

Hope you all had a lovely family time over Christmas.
