This week at Fairholme ...

 We have been talking about and making plans for our Christmas parties, and our early meetings in 2016, all just a few weeks away!

A lot of foundation piecing and curved piecing has been
keeping Daphne busy as she completed this very striking
quilt top in a regular class with Chris Jurd. The colour
scheme, fabric selection and design have masculine
appeal, so her husband might be the lucky recipient
of her interpretation of All At Sea.
Dawn has been quilting for some of the men in her extended
family too. This quilt and the one below are both based
on printed panels, enhanced with complimentary borders.
The pebble print narrow border on this one is a particularly
good choice. with the other prints.
The wilderness theme is continued in Dawn's second quilt. 
Jo has just returned from a trip to the Northern
Territory. She found some beautiful fabrics in Alice
Springs, and this painting on canvas by Kyra
Campbell, After Rains, appealed because of it
similarity to free motion quilting.
Margaret is finishing the binding on a long-
standing work in progress. She found the fabrics while
on a cruise through the Inside Passage from
Vancouver to Alaska ...
... and dyed the backing fabric herself. Worth waiting for!
(and note how beautifully she dressed in coordinating colours.)
Pat has completed her machine appliqued wall
hanging begun in a class with Anne Sommerlad last
year. She found the machine quilting a challenge,
but it looks great, Pat!
Sue H is a new member this year, but she is
certainly not a novice quilter. Her foundation pieced
feathered star lies perfectly flat, and will be the centre
of a medallion quilt.
