Last week's show and tell

It was a delight to revisit Lyn's Yoko Saito quilt, now that it
is quilted. Like all Lyn's work it is beautifully done - we look
forward to it hanging in our 2018 quilt show in April. 
Close-up details - but photos cannot do it justice
- it needs to be seen 'in the cloth'.
There is so much to see - you could look at it long
and often and still see new things.
One other quilter was heard to say that having seen
Lyn's quilt finished she was encouraged to get out the
pattern that she has had for several years, and get
started - we look forward to that!
Louise's Studio Mystery quilt is different again
 from all the others we saw the week before last!

Dawn was trying to find a way to use her bird print panels, 
without much success, until the berry and leaves stripe 
appeared in a donation of fabric from Material Girls Down 
Under - both the print and the background blue were just 
the thing, and the quilt is now happily finished and in our 
community collection.
Someone from a group Denise belongs to is leaving after a
long association, and Denise has made this small quilt with
heart shaped spaces for them all to sign as a farewell gift.

Helen found these twenty one Lemoyne Star blocks on eBay.
They are hand pieced, using authentic feed sacks and either
quilters' muslin or s fine calico /homespun, and in good condition.
She is thinking about putting them together, and how to quilt
them sympathetically.
These beautiful batiks were a roll-up, donated by Sew Can I in
Werrington County, and won by Julie at our Biggest Morning
Tea back in May. Now beautifully quilted by Jo (Quiltwise).
Margaret has been making Christmas table runners and Santa
bags for her market stall.
These beautiful bags are also Margaret's work - she selected the
cross stitch panels from the end-of-year challenge table, and is
making them into tote bags, with carefully chosen, good quality
fabric to compliment them. The eight panels were worked
more than ten years ago, by Janice, who is delighted to
see them being used.
