Some of My Sewing

I have been making these nine patch blocks for a while, I sewed them all together the other day, but I'm thinking of sewing a couple more rows to make it bigger

When I was in Bernina a few weeks ago I picked up some background fabric squares to make 'house blocks' for a Hospice fundraiser quilt. Here's what I did with my two backgrounds.

A made a little Wharenui, using some fussy cut fabric.

And a little red brick Dunny! 

I hope they are not too Outside the Square :-)

May Club Meeting

The Club Meeting was a bit different this month, we had an Open Day.
Several members demonstrated different things from free motion quilting to hand piecing and lots in between. 
This little girl was very interested in Lynne's thread painted work.
I think she won the special raffle for visitors, (a basket of sewing supplies and fabric), so we may get a new quilter :-) 

We also had Leeanne Hopper professional machine quilter (Quiltmekiwi) as our guest speaker. 
She bought a lot of show n tell of quilts see had quilted to share. 
She spoke about how she started quilting for others, as a means to feed her own quilting hobby!
Her tips were practical ones of stitching in the ditch first, and of course practice. 

After she spoke we all had a closer look at her beautiful quilting.
