2017 end-of-year challenge (3)

 These challenge quilts were made by members of the Tuesday night group ...

 Helen rescued a single star block, knowing that she had
complimentary fabrics for borders in her stash.
Elaine finished joining Peggy's hexagon flowers, that were
started long ago, added some new ones and is ready to
appliqué them to a border
Janet says she attracts orphan blocks like this near-vintage
collection that she handed over to Lynette - and another
community quilt came to life with additional donated fabrics.

Jill updated and enlarged Helen's small navy and red log cabin quilt top
Hilary also rescued s single star block and used it as a feature
panel in one of the ten SewMiriam  zip top bags she has made!

These challenge quilts were team efforts ...

Lyn re-jigged a large top that she thought was 'too brown'
into two, and Lynette practised spiral quilting on one for
a community quilt
Daphne and Sue H worked together to join up some large
pieced hexagon blocks into a table runner.
Lyn used some of the strips of a penguin print to sash
complimentary 'In a Whirl' blocks made with SewMiriam's
 tutorial. It came to a community sewing day for basting, and Lyn
quilted it for community quilts.

And some people have decided not to have their quilts photographed until they are finished - so there will be more!
