Jackie bought along her version of scrappy to share with us, still a W.I.P. at this stage Jackie is planning on a plain, possibly white sashing between the 4 rows below.
Sue was inspired by the 'Delight' quilt challenge that a number of our group took part in last year and has decided to create her own version.
And of course, what is one of the bestest things about being part of a quilting group?
bringing along your blocks and playing with others about layout, colours and other 'design wiggles'.
Debby has been working on this applique block for awhile now (Months....she says...with feeling!)
She has some lovely fabrics chosen as borders to finish off her wall hanging.
Just had to show a closer view, this puss has got the cheekiest grin, kinda looks like he knows exactly where that mouse is!
The label tells the story,
a few years later, Marlene created another quilt from the left overs, as you do
and used some more of those left overs to create a unique backing
Now, doesn't this qualify as a 'free quilt'?
Marlene also had a flimsy to share with us, it's for a very special gift, her Grandsons upcoming 21st Birthday!!
Sometimes stitching will show up a little better in a black and white version, so here goes....
Now the last 2 quilts to share with you are very special, they have been created by Val's quilting group, you will remember that Val and her girls stitch and create a large number of charity quilts for Laurel House. A lot of donations come their way, fabric, part finished quilts, orphan blocks etc etc, but there is one constant expense, batting of course, and as quilters, we all know that is not a small expense.
Val and her gals are raffling 2 quilts to raise funds to purchase batting to continue their works,
and if you would like a chance to win one of these beauties either see Val at Patchwork or email us at
valsquiltingals13at(you know the sign for that)gmail(dot)com and we will work something out for you
Tickets are $1 each or 6 for $5.
A closer view of the quilt
but the second quilt is also a stunner. Each gal was given some black and white fabric to create a block, and this is some of what they came up with...
Tomorrow night (Thursday 3rd) at 7.30 at the Cottage we will be treated to a Talk with Show and Tell from our very own Gwen.
Now we all know of Gwen's quilting skills and some of the amazing quilts she has created throughout her quilting career.....but some of you may not have heard the fascinating story of her quilting journey. Give yourself a treat, come along, bring a friend or two or ten, you will love yourself for it!!!
Bring along a gold coin donation as entrance and to help out those amazing 'Walkers for Cancer research funds' Debs and Jenny
Supper is included.........oh and just a bye the bye, if you bring 10 let the gals know....<vbg>
