Last week's quilts ...

Last week was nearly all about the 2017 Sydney Quilt Show at Darling Harbour. Two of our members entered quilts - it was good to see them hanging there:

Pat Nerlich with her quilt 'Urban', am original design, hand quilted.
'Wind Power' is the first of Julie White's two entries
- it is based on a photo Julie took in he Netherlands many years
ago. machine appliqued and free motion embroidered.

Julie's 'Visions in Japan', designed with one panel and
complimentary fabrics to complete the picture. Many
areas of the fish panel, Mt Fuji and the heron are
embellished with hand embroidery (stem stitch).

 A lot of members attended the quilt show over its four days, and we did see some gorgeous purchases on Monday, as well as some local 'show and tell' ...

Miriam made this double-sided beauty in a
sew-along with Brigitte Giblin. This is the front ...
... and the reverse. Miriam did say that machine
quilting it was a challenge!
Pat chose a lovely palette for a baby quilt
for new great nephew.
