Catching up with show and tell ...

Winter days and evenings have seen smaller numbers able to attend meetings, but the work goes on. Here is some of what we have been working on and finishing over the last two weeks:

Yvette has finished her large hand appliqued quilt top,
and plans to hand quilt it ...
... her blanket stitch is so finely wrought, you can't see it in this
close-up. Absolutely beautiful and beautifully done, Yvette.
Nerida also likes to make large quilts - she used some strip
packs from the craft stall at our April Quilt Show to make
this elegantly simple quilt ...
... and backed it with a popular Tula Pink wide-back print, Flight.
Lyn has made a lot of quilt over the years, and has a robust scrap
collection. She has tamed a little of it with her disappearing 9 patch top.
Jo-Ann cut some squares from the community stash that Jill
supplemented with some her scraps for this simple patchwork
quilt. there is a little it of a pirate theme.
Julie has very carefully finished her fantasy dragon wall-hanging
- the dragons are machine embroidered and had to be closely
cut before being appliqued on with a steady hand. The castle
flag poles and the dragon's eyes are embellished with
beads, some gifted by Peggy from her extenisve collection.
Gold thread also features. From a pattern by Eileen Campbell.
