October Show and Tell

Hi everyone.  Welcome to October's show and tell.  We had a small showing this month.  Hopefully that means that there are lots of quilts nearing completion to be shown next month?  Actually, November is the club's Christmas lunch, December is a no-meeting month so maybe those quilts can all wait till our exhibition in January!  Yes, our exhibition is drawing near, get stitching!

This is a very special quilt.  Daryl made it from blocks that were going to be a healing heart quilt for her sister.  Unfortunately, her sister passed away before it could be made.  I'm sure it will be treasured.

Carol made a big Hawaiian bag.  There are a few of these floating round the club now, it shows how useful they are!

This is what Judy made with her Princess Mary blocks that she made at the workshop with Beatrice.

Nita had a 'few' 1 1/2" squares hanging round so she decided to sew them together.  Look what happened!!  Apparently she has a few more hanging round too.  I love the secondary pattern.

The other happening at the meeting was a demonstration and mini-workshop that I ran on fabric stamping, monoprinting and screen printing.  I think it went really well - everybody seemed to have fun.

See you next month when I'll have pictures of the Christmas Lunch.
