|Jan could not resist this gorgeous fabric for a |
dress for her little granddaughter - bet she
loves it too! It has a beautiful big flouncy
bow on the half belt that ties at the back.
A couple of weeks ago Daphne had finished all the blocks
for this quilt (several years in the making), and was stuck
for enough black fabric to put them together. All solved for
a vibrant finish worth waiting for!
Design by Chris Jurd, loads of foundation piecing for precision.
|Miriam's latest (top) finish - snowballs with some tricky |
matching of the corners to make the diamonds,
just requires careful layout before joining.
|It all started wth the rhubarb Rowan Collective fabric, |
and the four Senoritas ...
|Julie is carefully following Tamsin Harvey's fusible applique |
pattern from her 2015 book 'Constantinople Quilts. This is the
first of eight repeats making a large circle.
|We often see quilts that Yvette has quilted for others, so |
it was a treat to see two of Yvette's own quilts recently.
First up, pastels for a baby.
Then, precision piecing! Yvette foundation pieced all the
points in her striking geometic quilt. Those flying geese
angles are more demanding than usual ...
... and quilted it with contrasting but gentle curves.
|Roslyn had a very clear image of her SuperStars quilt, with |
its rich, dramatic pink background, and she has brought
it to life very well.
|The reverse of Roslyn's quilt ...|
|... and a detail of the clamshell quilting by Yvette |
|Noelle hand pieced her lovely version of 'Fire and Ice', |
designed by Carol Roberts (Cherry Pie Designs). It was
machine quilted by @quilting finesse
|Nerida brought her Anna Maria Horner 'Dear Diary' quilt in |
for us to see it finished ...
|... and the beautiful pieced backing from fabric she had stashed.|
|We basted Louise's pretty baby quilt, ready for hand quilting |
and hanging in our quilt show in April, before being
delivered to baby Lily.
|Nerida's 'Bessie Creek Road' BOM from Treehouse |
Textiles is a finished top, and an absolute beauty.
That red gingham border!
|The Flutterbies in Susan's version of Jen Kingwell's |
design are subtle even though the colours are vibrant.
|Linda's beginner's patchwork class wanted to learn |
how to use a jelly roll - this is her class sample.
|Elaine went travelling in Europe last year, making floral |
hexagons along the way. The bees were made on her
embroidery machine at home - memories!
|Robin's modern table runner |
is very stylish.
|Nerida is delighted with Yvette's quilting on her|
'Dear Diary' quilt, designed by Anna Maria Horner
|Nerida has used fabric from several fabric ranges designed |
by Anna Maria Horner, collected over several years.
|Susan's Kaffe Fasset diamonds are a Mediterranean rainbow ...|
|... with a complimentary bright backing.|
|Julie made excellent use of a hexagon collection, |
tamed before it went feral.
|Elaine tried her hand at sashiko stitching to |
enhance her Japanese inspired quilt.
|Adrienne's SuperStars, quilted by Yvette - it was beautiful |
as a pieced top, and just keeps getting better ...
|... and Adrienne had just just the right fabrics for the backing.|
|Sue C's William Morris machine pieced hexagons.|
|Barbara a pretty toile from the community stash to |
make this little quilt top
|The backing and binding are also from the community stash. |
Jill added the quilting.
|Dawn made this squares and rectangles top with fabric from |
the donated stash of a former member who can no longer sew.
We are making all of it into community quilts.
|Some delightful vintage-style 'cheater' prints were found |
in the donated stash, and Dawn has added borders.
Quilted by Laura in a vintage style apple/vine design.
|Dawn combined two 'cheater' prints and a narrow border |
in this one, also quilted by Laura.
|All of these blocks are the same size - the design is simple, |
but ingenous (Batiks in the Wild, by Suzy Meyers).
Jill used large scraps from her stash, starting with 10" squares.
