Biggest Morning Tea show and tell (2 of 2)

Lyn's machine applique of Anne Sommerlad's design
'Summer', from our workshop with Anne last year.
Former member Maureen came up from the south coast.
Her very large hexagon quilt has been some time in the making!
Maureen's Japanese quilt won a Viewers' Choice award
at the recent Red Berry Quilters show. The strips
are woven rather than pieced.
Miriam mixed fabrics for her hexagon quilt p everything
from batiks to reproductions. It was only when she finished
that she saw the happy accident of the light stars where
she had used light-value hexagons. 

Read more about this quilt on Sew Miriam.
Pat's 'Jolly Stars' quilt top from our workshop with
Catherine Butterworth is elegantly sophisticated.

Peggy has made wonderfully whimsical quilts for each of
her grandchildren. This is number eight.
Robyn's cheerful daisy hexagons are her own design.
The quilt brightens a common area at Robyn's village. 
Val's contemporary design was made for a
competition in the late 1990s. It travelled
to the US and Austria for exhibition.
Roslyn's beautiful applique is based on the Rose Window
in Notre Dame, Paris.It was made in the late 1990s
Sue S's classic sampler with a delightful dancing dollies border.
Susan brought one her early quilts that suited the
occasion well.She didn't know she had done broderie
perse borders until a more experienced quilter
pointed it out.
Sue C's mother made her reversible quilted
jacket more than forty years ago, and it still fits!
Thank you all for sharing your treasures - it was lovely to see them again, or for the first time.
