Last week was nearly all about the 2017 Sydney Quilt Show at Darling Harbour. Two of our members entered quilts - it was good to see them hanging there:
|Pat Nerlich with her quilt 'Urban', am original design, hand quilted.|
|'Wind Power' is the first of Julie White's two entries |
- it is based on a photo Julie took in he Netherlands many years
ago. machine appliqued and free motion embroidered.
|Julie's 'Visions in Japan', designed with one panel and |
complimentary fabrics to complete the picture. Many
areas of the fish panel, Mt Fuji and the heron are
embellished with hand embroidery (stem stitch).
A lot of members attended the quilt show over its four days, and we did see some gorgeous purchases on Monday, as well as some local 'show and tell' ...
|Miriam made this double-sided beauty in a |
sew-along with Brigitte Giblin. This is the front ...
|... and the reverse. Miriam did say that machine |
quilting it was a challenge!
|Pat chose a lovely palette for a baby quilt |
for new great nephew.
