Show n Tell May 2012

OK the week seems to have been very busy (for me at least) and I finally have found some time to post last weeks Show nTell. As I'm editing this post and noticed that it is my 200th post! Wow it doesn't seem that long ago I started this blogging so I'm a bit surprised. 

The Meeting last Saturday was really good. Catherine Davies-Colley spoke and showed a power point about the journey she has been on, to achieve her Master of Arts Degree.

It was so interesting that when I got home I realised that I had been so enthralled with listening to her I had forgotten to take any photos of the samples she had with her. But fortunately there will be an exhibition of her work on at Reyburn House (no dates yet). Then we can see them in the 'flesh' and appreciate all their glorious detail.

OK onwards to the Show n Tell.

Lolly Pink Logs by Jennifer Cullen.
Jennifer said she has always wanted to make a log cabin quilt so now she has!
 I love the bright pinks and blues, it is so happy looking don't you think?

Post Cards from the South Pacific by Terri Mills (pattern by Mary Transom)
Terri made it her own with the curved edges and 3D flowers. 

Detail so you can see the 3D flowers.

This beautiful little wall hanging was made by Shirley Julian
 in the recent class taught by Jeanette Nicol De Meyer .

Dutch Landscape by Robyn Halverson. Inspired by a painting by  Dutch Artist Ton Schulten
Make sure you use this link and look at his beautiful mosaic landscapes they are gorgeous.

Marion Moon made this lovely baby quilt for a friends grand baby that was due last week.
I wonder if the baby has arrived yet? 

Maria New started this  black, white and pink beauty
at our recent retreat in Auckland,and has already finished it!
It is for her son's partner,and I'm sure she will feel very lucky receiving such a wonderful gift.

Marie Finegan made this wonderful Kiwiana quilt for her grandson Nicolas' 21st.
He chose a lot of the fabrics for this quilt himself so I'm sure he will love it. Quilted by Sandy Robinson.

Hazel Phillips won a bunch of five and a half inch squares at the April Club Meeting.
So she added a few extras from her own stash and made this lovely lap quilt. Talk about speedy work!

Do you think these T-Rex's are just talking or about to fight?

These are my favourite Dinosaurs (Stegosaurus). Don't the batik fabric works wonderfully for Dinosaurs?
That's it for now cheers everyone,
