First week back - show and tell (1)

For some of us, our summer break was time to sew ... this is our first week back to regular meetings, and there was plenty to see. Here are the first few, there are more to come.

Julie's great grandson will love his race track quilt.
It is mostly a large and detailed panel, that Julie has added
border strips, from the rows of cars out. The outer black and
white check is a brilliant finish.
We have seen Diana's quilt as you go hexagons over several
months - now they are all together in a beautiful, and
beautifully made wall hanging.
A mutual friend of Pat and Lynette died several years ago
before she could finish this quilt. Without the pattern but with
the fabric she intended to use, and the centre applique finished,
they decided to finish it for Judy's family. Jo-Ann Phillips
quilted it. Job well done.
Roslyn's little granddaughter is in a cot, but had no cot
quilt (although her big bed quilt is already done)!
Grandma to the rescue at short notice.
Jill quilted this very colourful top of many colourful prints
with an organic (ie not measured) curved grid. The backing
fabric is from the community stash, a donation from material
Girls Down Under. For the community quilts collection
The feature fabric for 'Anna Maria in the Wild' is a length 
of Anna Maria Horner's Social Climber rose print from the 
community stash. The pattern is 'Batiks in the Wild' by 
Suzi - much simpler to cut and sew than it looks. Pieced 
by Jill - quilting pending, for the community quilts collection.
