Finally gave Mark his Quilt

Mark came home this weekend! It has been great to have him here, and I finally gave him his quilt to take home. Other times he has been home he had no luggage space to take it back to Sydney. (Also last time I hadn’t  finished quilting it either!)

Here he is checking out all the NZ fabrics.

I collected heaps of New Zealand themed fabrics to make this quilt, and like any good quilter I have heaps left over.

This is the simple label I made for the back, with simple washing instructions! I hardly ever make labels quilts (I know I should). What about you, do you make labels for every quilt, or just ones you are going to give away?

25 Years of Show n Tell

Wow it's over a week now since the last club day, where has the time gone? All week I have been meaning to post, but you know life gets in the way. Nothing interesting to share just the normal work, kids, & husband stuff, anyway on with show n tell...


It was our clubs 25th Anniversary so we had cake!

Jocelyn made this yummy cake and had it iced with our club badge image.
Here's Jocelyn (our President) with members Relda & Gaye cutting the cake.

Table runner made by Pam Carr
'It's a Mystery to Me' by Janet Geeks. Mystery quilt made through the Ngunguru quilt group.
Disappearing Nine Patch by Hazel Phillips
Maureen Gray made this wall hanging to use up her NZ fabrics.
She is going to make another one as she still has plenty of fabrics.
Sue Gillard made this quilt for her brother's 70th birthday. Sue says 'He has a chihuahua which rules his life, so they can both cuddle up with this lap quilt while watching the Rugby!'
Sonya Prchal painted & machine embroidered this little beach scene.
 She will be adding this  to the classes she teaches.
Pam Carr bought is this is a 'Round Robin' quilt from 1996 to share as part of our 25th Anniversary celebrations.

It's a long time since we have done a shared project, maybe it's time to do one again.
