Recent show and tell

We had a preview of Nerida's 18th birthday quilt, but it has
been under embargo until gifted to her nephew last weekend.
Dawn has been called on recently to make three quilts,
two for close family members and one for a nursing home
in the country. This one is for her sister-in-law, a pretty
mix of prints, with a clever use of a birder print. She
is now finishing off a community quilt from the left-over
fabric from one of the other two - nothing goes to waste.
Forty 10" star blocks were made for last year's end-of-year
challenge, so we've made two quilts. One is nearly done, just a
few threads to bury and binding. Jill put these blocks together
and quilted it. Noelle is working on the second one.
Helen has already made a start on her 2017 challenge quilt.
She chose the single blue star block from the orphan pile, and
is building a medallion quilt from fabric in her stash. She
says there is plenty of fabric, so a few more borders to go.
