Post-long-weekend show and tell (2)

More from this week's show and tell (and one more post to come) ...

For a little great-daughter - Julie made story book blocks
from patterns by Michele Hill. How lovely to have a quilt
that your great grandma made specially for you!
Denise brought all her teacup and teapot fabric to
the bag-making workshop with Miriam last month. She
paid close attention to Miriam's advice about using a feature
fabric and finding accent colours in the print, and her pink
teapot became the star. The lining is blue and white tea
cups, and check out the zipper pull - teapot fussy cut on
one side, teacup on the other - attention to detail!

Daphne is nearly done with the large blocks for her
Katja Marek New Hexagon quilt.  Progress will slow down
for a little while she is busy checking out the International
Quilt Festival in Houston in a few weeks!
We've been admiring Nerida's Whimsy quilt blocks, and
then suddenly there is a finished Sweet Sunday quilt to swoon
over! The pattern is a rework of the popular Candied Hexagons,
from Treehouse Textiles in Victoria, and incorporates vintage
embroidered and cross stitched linen. Nerida's version is
spectacular! A few of the details below in close-up.
