Show n Tell, March 2012

Well we had a great meeting on Saturday even if there was a smaller turn out than usual, because of an overseas tutor teaching a quilting class, and other events like Opera in the Park.

I really enjoyed listening to our guest speaker Mary Adlam (a past club member). Mary caught us up with all the exciting things she has been doing since she returned to England. Hopefully we will she her again next year as she is hoping to return for the Symposium in Taupo.

Ok now on to show and tell, enjoy.

Pauline Schon made this little wallhanging, using several different techniques. I recognise the leaves from the 'Layered Leaves' class.

Marion Moon made this lap quilt. It's called 'Ooey Gooey Hearts'.
It's made by raw edge appliquéing the hearts to the background, then cutting away the background fabric from under the heart, then you appliqué that (heart shape you have just cut) onto the top.

'Layered Leaves' by Merle Armitage, from a class with tutor Jaqui Karl.
I like the extra beads and embroidery Merle has added.

A lovely little stitchery wallhanging made by Marie Finegan

Jennifer Cullen made this quilt using leftovers from another quilter (I think she said her sister?)
That's a lot of left overs!

Beryl McDowell made this beautiful quilt for her Grand Daughters 4th Birthday.

This is the little wallhanging that Sandy Robinson completed at Opononi the other weekend.
Make sure you read the poem it's good.

Sandy's Son Matthew recently turned 21, so Sandy made him this special book.
It's full of great photos and messages written by family and friends.

That's a good idea about borrowing money... :-D
