Show n Tell July 2016

Here is the Show n Tell from our July meeting. It is a little late as I wanted to leave the videos about quilt binding at the top of the blog for a while. So if you are still looking for those videos they are on the next post down!

I missed taking photos of some quilts, and some photos just didn't come out clear (me moving my phone too fast, opps). But enjoy the photos that I did  take!

This is a charity quilt made by club members. If you look hard you will see the rectangle pieced edges of the blocks circle around a central turquoise square.
This block was made using a 'partial seam' as I demonstrated at club last month.

This quilt (pattern called Scrap Vomit) was made by Helen Barron.

Leonie Wihongi so enjoyed making this quilt pattern, she made several versions.


Cot quilt made By Kerinda Robb, quilted on the new Bernina Longarm Q24 at Bernina Northland.

And finally my quilt also quilted on the new Q24 Longarm at Bernina Northland.

This was my first time quilting on the Q24 and I enjoyed it so much.
Sandy at Bernina Northland hires out the Q24 Longarm, for you to quilt your own quilts, so if you are interested in having a go, pop in and see her.
It's great fun and I know I will be quilting many more quilts on the Q24.

Joining Binding- like I did in the demo today at club.

Today at club I demo-ed Magic Binding and I said I would add these videos again to the blog.

Bookmark this post so you can come back to it next time you have a quilt to bind and you would like to use the methods I showed today.

This one shows the making of Magic Binding, but I'm not so keen on how Jenny joins her binding at the end (I've made too many mistakes cutting it first like she does)

This video shows the way I join the ends of my binding. I haven't made a mistake using this method, and I get to trim the ends after I am happy with my seam.

Good luck with your binding.

PS   remember you can click on the 'full screen' icon in the bottom right hand corner (once you have started the video) so the videos are easier to watch.
