August Show and Tell Bonanza!

Terri showed off a bright little cot quilt started at our last all day madness.

Judith's Crazy Cats is so fantastically vibrant it just about jumps off the wall.

Christine showed us a beautiful appliqued quilt.

Bia hand quilted this beauty.

Stephanie's masterpiece is not done justice by this photo.

Jane's Christmas themed table runner. 

Suzanne was very glad to finish the machine quilting on this lovely piece.

Beatrice thought we might be interested in these pieces after we had a talk by the weavers and spinners a month or two back.  The centre cardigan, made in the 70's, is dog hair!

Carol was wanting a quick project, but got a little carried away.  Beautiful autumn colours.

Valerie's masterpiece for her daughter.

Here's a closeup.  It's a quilt as you go and it has an intricate 3D texture.

And everyone was fascinated!  I had to take this pic of everyone crowding round to get a better look!

Suzanne's daughter's first composition - I see a new masterquilter in the making.

Julie has been very productive and had several lovely little projects to show.

This is a bag of Julie's.

Julie's again.

And there will be no mistaking who is sewing behind the door that this hangs on.

These are funky little containers made by Beatrice.

Margaret made this just for her!

And she made us all laugh with the tale of how this wall hanging came about.  Yes, those Minties are fake!

This is a quilt top I've finished, but hopefully it will have been quilted and sent to it's new owner by the next meeting.

Wow.  That was quite the Show and Tell.  I guess it's coming towards spring and all those rainy days of winter have been put to good use.  Happy quilting everyone!


  1. What fabulous, cheerful colours and patterns, perfect for this beautiful spring day.
