February 2017 Show and Tell

February meeting was our club's AGM.  We had organised a fun club challenge last year to pick a UFO and sign a contract to have it finished by our February meeting for show and tell.

So, when it came down to the crunch, who got a gold star for completing their UFO?  (And yes, you really did get a gold star sticker on your name badge if you had finished!).

Click back to this post here to see everyone's original UFOs.

Shannon took this entire quilt apart and completed the quilting, then put it back together (it's quilt as you go).  All that's left is the border and binding.

Stephanie almost completed her top from just having a few of the blocks made.  She challenged herself to only use fabrics from her stash.

Gold star for Nita!  She did an amazing job quilting this quilt that was started in a class at one of the past quilt symposiums.  Nita won our viewer's choice that we held after show and tell.

Jane got two gold stars.  One for this interesting curved table runner above and another for the Kaffe Fasset fabric quilt below.  A really interesting block that made the quilt into a real stunner.

Shirley gets a gold star for finishing off this quilt (double sided too!) made from discharged fabrics and embroidered blocks.

Another gold star for Shirley with these left over hexies combined with sashiko to make a table topper.

Aida completed this NZ themed bird quilt for her sister.  It has lots of colour, just like her sister, according to Aida.  A gold star for Aida.

Anne completed this quilt begun in a class.  Lots of learning went into it.

And then she earned her second gold star for this intricate quilt.  Anne is our new club president.

Ingrid finished this quilt that had languished due to the colours not being her favourite.  Gold star for perseverance.  

Darryl earned her gold star for this lovely blue and white quilt made with indigo dyed fabrics.

Janet rearranged this quilt a bit and finished it off for her gold star.

Diane got her little quilt done and earned herself a gold star.  

Judith used african prints and the quilting had little paw prints - very cool.

Charlotte's blue and white monster just needs the binding sewn down now.  It's been about eight years in the making.

These next few photographs weren't part of the UFO challenge, just our normal show and tell.  Beatrice is very prolific and didn't disappoint with a couple of cushions to show.

And Ingrid made this quilt for her Nephew (?) who likes purple and heavy metal.  She free-motion sketched some rockers in the centre and they are pretty amazing!

Thanks everyone.  See you next month.
