Biggest Morning Tea show and tell (1 of 2)

Lynette showed us two of her antique quilts, from the early 1800s.
Bear's Paw blocks with red sashing.
Thanks to Phyl and Fran for being such excellent holder-uppers
of so many quilts in a crowded room.
Lynette's second antique quilt - hexagon diamonds each with a
red centre - someone commented on how popular hexagons
are now, and that this design could have been made today.
Lynette bought her first antique quilt from an American dealer
at a quilt show in Japan, and then sought her out in New Jersey
because of the quality of her stock and expertise.
Dawn has recently returned from a holiday on
Norfolk Island, where she did a workshop
with Gloria Loughman. This is her second
quilt from the workshop, based on the
local environment. The first is here.
Elsa also brought her very first finished quilt, started in a
workshop with Margaret Sampson George, and finished last
year - not the easiest design to choose for your first quilt!
Marilyn made this quilt for her mother. 
Nerida made this one a class with Sue Cody
at Killara Village Quilts about 10 years ago
Louise made this beautiful hand-quilted whole cloth as a wedding
quilt for her daughter and son-in-law ...
... and it is holding up well after 13 years of use. 
Janice showed us her Jane Austin quilt.
JoAnn and Roslyn took a quilting tour to Japan in 2008.
The group set a challenge to make a quilt about the trip, to be
revealed at their one year reunion. Joann's challenge quilt
includes fabrics acquired on the tour.
