Fairholme members' show and tell

Click on an image for a larger view.

Georgie has discovered a love for circles and curved piecing - she made these blocks with a beautiful selection of green and blue batik fabrics left over from some earlier Jinny Beyer quilts.  She used a circle template, but sewed the curves without pinning.
Georgie's table runner is made with fabrics bought in Japan, including some vintage fabrics.  It will be placed under a bonsai pot.
Susan's large quilt  with octagon blocks is finished -  
She has quilted it herself, cutting the backing in one big piece, with the top completely joined, but cut the wadding into thirds, and then quilted sections, making it easier to manage the large quilt 'sandwich' through the throat of her machine.
