Seminole Patchwork Jacket
Created by Heather
For this jacket the strips were cut in varying widths and with colours graded from darks to lights with two accent colours blended in. The strips were joined vertically, recut at a 45 degree angle into more strips and joined again to form a panel of fabric big enough for each section of the jacket. A small group of neighbours held a few workshops to learn the technique. My jacket was made entirely by me and is all machine pieced.

I have edged the flowers with narrow bias binding. A group of us liked the same pattern and all made our own version of it.

'My First Yo-Yos'
Created by Jules
This Yo-Yo (Suffolk puff) quilt was made from the inspiration and guidance from Jenny Clauston of the same group.
It is all hand pieced and stitched by myself and made from my scraps.
About 140 of the Yo-Yo were made whilst I was traveling across the States last year, so some of these pieces are very well traveled!!

The Australian flora fabric I feel is really beautiful. It represents the Australian flora so well. I used the Snowball pattern thinking it would be a quick quilt to make but forgot about all those seams that should meet. But I was happy with the result.
'Gum Leaves in the Pool'
Created by Betty
An article from an old Australian Patchwork and Quilting magazine by Wendy Williams, from N.S.W. gave me inspiration for this quilt a "reflective mosaic of cool summer blues and rustic browns".
Materials all found in my depleted material stash. Hand appliqued, machine pieced and quilted.

I made this quilt out of scraps for my husband to take along on those overnight trips where he sleeps in the ute. White backgrounds and pastels just don't work in this situation. The scraps cover many, many quilts, most of which I can remember.
Quilt is designed, machine pieced and machine quilted by me.

'The Flowers that Bloom in the Spring'
Created by Sue
Deborah Kitching's flower block from her book Country Best was the ideal size to take and stitch on my recent train and coach holiday in Australia. I used bright scraps I had in my stash instead of the country colours Deborah suggested. I also added borders making the quilt big enough to use as a single bed topper.
