Clubs Mini Symposium July 2017

Last month we had a mini Symposium at the Quilt Club. It was a day full of demo's by some club members, and yummy soup for lunch made by committee members.
Here are some photos from the day.

There were many more demo's (these are just the ones I got photos of). 
The day was a success with everyone learning something new. 

I won't be at the August meeting, (I'm going to Paihia for the jazz Festival that weekend) so there will be no August Show n Tell on the blog sorry. 

To finish, here is Oscar guarding my knitting for me.

Show n Tell June 207

Wow, it's already July, so I thought I better post the June Show n Tell. Not everything is here. Sometimes people don't want their items on the blog and sometimes the photos don't come out etc. So sorry if your creation has been missed.

Shelia Ujdur made these lovely native bird wallhangings as gifts.
There was another but I spared you the blurry photo!


Pam Carr made this lovely stitchery quilt. It was a Block of the Month from the Country Yard.

'Paws n Claws' made by Rikki Going. See the detail photo of the Lion below.

Show N Tell Mat 2017

Gosh it's nearly the end of the month so I thought I better get around to posting the Show n Tell from the May Meeting!
Autumn Carpet by Lex Geange. 
Lex wrote  "I bought this pattern many years ago, designed by Ruth Powers. I began to construct it 2 years ago. It was fun to work on, having at least 10 different foundation pieced blocks. Sandy from Bernina quilted it for me- she is to be congratulated on producing such an intricate and professional finish. I am really thrilled with the end product"
Made by Kay Watson in Lynne Maddens Scrap Quilt Class

Made by Kerinda Robb in the same Scrap Quilt Class taken by Lynne Madden. Kerinda has changed the placement of her light and dark fabrics so her quilt looks very different from Kay's.

Dresden Plate Quilt made by Lynda Parker for her Mothers 80th Birthday (2 years ago). She will receive it this Mothers Day.

Detail of Lynda's quilt so you can see the lovely quilting.

New Venue

The club meeting is at a new venue this month, the Rock n Roll Club Rooms off Riverside Drive, Whangarei. 
Below is a satellite map to help you find your way there. 

You can't really see it from the road, you have to drive down the driveway, which is opposite the BP station (well just passed as you can see below)

Here are some of the quilts, and items that were on show at the last club meeting.

Show n Tell February 2017

Well I really did have a long blog holiday didn't I? I had a great Xmas/New Year, having both my sons and a girlfriend staying for a few weeks.
I worked on and off over the holidays at Bernina Northland (more like having fun than working). But now everything is back to 'normal' if there is ever any such thing, and I'm back to work at school too.

So anyway here is some of the Show n Tell from the February Meeting. There was more but some of the photos didn't come out very good and I didn't get photos of everything either. Sorry if your item was missed out.

Made by Jane Robinson for her 9th grandchild.

Made by Helen Barnes, she won the fabrics in a fabric poker game, including the fabric for the back (some of which were millennium fabrics!)

Japanese Blossom Time made by Shirley Juilan

Made using several different 'Quilt As You Go' techniques so she could learn them all, by Gaylyn Barclay.

Picasso Vase made by Ros Baker made in Mary Transom's class at Symposium.

Made by Maureen Gray from blocks she won last year. Quilted by her daughter Raewyn.

Baby quilt made by Sonya Prchal for her first grandchild that's arriving soon.

Beautiful covered journals made by Shirley Julian
This is one of the great bags Dawn Dahlberg made for her grand daughters. Each small zippered bag has clear see-through plastic window,  and is velcroed onto the base . The whole lot rolls up and clips together too ( I forgot to get a photo of that).

Now these next few items I can't remember who's are who's! I usually take a photo of the items labels but as we were in the Pipe Band Hall and the show and tell wasn't hung up I couldn't do that.
If your item is below,comment or email me and I will update with names.
