The last few quilters we persuaded to pose with their quilts - all of the others escaped. But we do have photos of many more quilts, so a few more quilt show posts to come.

This Quilt is a quilt along. Based on the book The Farmer's Wife,
the goal was to complete one block a day. I decided it will
look spectacular red and white.
Quilted by Jo-Ann Phillips.

I was stopped in my tracks when I first saw Chris Jurd’s quilt
“Reproduction Beauty” so of course, I just had to make it. Little
did I realise it would be the beginning of an addiction to foundation
piecing. This quilt was overtaken by other projects but it is
finally quilted! Foundation piecing, free motion quilting

|Linda Parsons with Moving on from Purple|
On a weekend retreat many years ago to create a scrappy
Zippy Strippy quilt I thought it was time to use up my purple
fabrics and start a new phase. Known for purple quilts this was t
o be my last for a while. As I collected the fabric together I fell in
love with the gold and decided to gradate the fabrics from purple
through to intense gold. It pushed me into my orange and lime
Strip pieced onto fine non woven fabric foundation squares.
Machine quilted with gold thread using a walking foot.

Online classes with Jacquie Gering and Susan Cleveland.
|Diana Brown with Diamonds Galore|
Always wanted to make this design and mostly used Japanese
fabrics. It was inspired by a Jane Austen pattern.
Machine pieced, machine quilted by Kim Mariani

This quilt top has been sitting in the cupboard for years waiting
for grandchildren to arrive. At last I have quilted it for my youngest
grandson Dillan. It has been so long since I made the quilt that
I can’t remember where I saw it, who designed it or where the
pattern is now. Probably lost somewhere in my quilt room chaos..
