Show n Tell July 2013

It was a very cold, but sunny day for the club meeting last Saturday. The weathers just getting us ready for Taupo! There was a lot of talking about Taupo Symposium (starts Thursday) and general excitement, as this is a long looked forward to event.
Sue Gillard was our guest speaker and told us all about the Whangarei Community Tapestry Project with a very impressive power point. Use the link above to see the Tapestry, and of course it is set up at 'The Bach' in the Town Basin so you can go and weave some of it yourself.

OK now onto Show n Tell

Here's the whole quilt, of beautiful hexagons made for a friends wedding anniversary, by Daphne Humphreys. 

Daphne used many different types of fabric including upholstery fabrics, so all the different textures together really make this quilt glow (hard to see in the photo!).

A little stitchery made by Carmel Spray. 

Jenny Gough is teaching herself to quilt, and this is an exercise from the book  'Easy Machine Quilting'.  The quilting looks great Jenny, looks like you've mastered free motion.



And lastly 'Simon's Landing' by Lex Geange. Lex fell in love with this pattern while on a trip to the USA two years ago. She managed to purchase the fabrics while there also. Quilted by Leonie Wihongi.

  2. Wow, it looks like everyone has been really busy. Love the way I can catch up with what everyone has been doing when I can't attend. Thanks Leeann for making that possible.
