This week's show a tell was a great mix of clothing, bags, blocks and quilts not-quite-finished ...
|Not only does the jacket look good, it folds very flat |
for packing, so would be good for travelling.
|Sharron made a Very Big Bag - it would be ideal for carrying|
a big quilt, or travelling for a week or so!
|Hilary (who made Sewmiriam bags for everyone in her book |
club for Christmas), took some of the left over blocks recently
donated to our community quilts program, and started to
make a quilt. But before she knew it they had become two
bags to be donated the craft stall at our quilt show in April!
|Jenn took the concept of see-through pockets in a sewing|
supplies pouch, repeated it on the inside, and re-sized it to fit
in her handbag for easy carrying, especially for the waiting
(i.e. hand-sewing) time at her young children's activities.
|English paper piecing supplies, always on hand!|
|Jill joined an Instagram based 'sewalong' started by two Canberra |
quilters, to make a quilt/blocks from Elizabeth Hartman's 2014
book Patchwork City. She is making the Eastside quilt using
the 25 5" x 8" blocks designs ( plus 11 duplicates to make it bigger)
and put them together in the Eastside layout. Now for quilting.

are doing and/or to join in.
|There are 75 original new block patterns in Patchwork City, |
which is readily available from Australian booksellers,
online and in a Kindle edition.
|Janet is waiting for a delivery of fabric for a big project, so she |
is using the time to catch up a little with her Splendid Sampler
blocks - she is half way through the 100 blocks, and it has been
interrupted for a while, but it is still very much on the 'to do' list.
