Show and Tell October 2015

Welcome to show and tell for the October meeting.  I apologise for the quality of the photographs as I only had my phone.

Judith is holding a panel quilted by Caroline.  This is a donation to the Women's Refuge.

And here's another by Caroline and it's also a donation.

Beatrice has lots of great grand-children to make quilts for.  This applecore quilt is backed in polar fleece for extra snuggliness.  (I made up that word!)

Beatrice is also the selvedge queen.  Here is a new sewing machine cover made with them.

Another by Beatrice.  Her daughter - also a quilter- came and raided her stash, cutting jelly rolls from all her fabrics.  Beatrice used one in the quilt above and three in the quilt below and I believe a couple went home with her daughter.

This is a wedding present.

Ingrid decided to use all her son's shirts for a bright, fun quilt.

The pockets and leftovers went on the back.  Ingrid says she learnt all about why you don't sew cottons and polyesters together....!

Shirley has been experimenting with felt and soldering tools.

Gayleen made this denim quilt as a 'weighted blanket' for a little boy with sensory issues.  It will be layered with a woollen blanket for extra heft and I'm sure she'll get a great workout while quilting it!

Next weekend is Festival of Quilts in Auckland.  Can't wait - see you all there!
