Lainey had been at the Cottage through the morning but managed to snap a couple of pics of delighted winners in the arvo.
1st. Prize Raffle quilt was won by local patch-worker Debie who confessed she really had her heart set on winning 'Celestial Dream' and couldn't be happier.
We even had some Show and Tell, a stunning quilt made by Val for her Great Niece.
Starting off our #4 quilt exhibition post is a set of very special place mats.
'Among my Souvenirs'
Cindy Watkins, Deloraine".
Brigette Giblin pattern 'Tessalations' was my first experience into fussy cutting. I love the bright and interesting combinations of fabric provided by Material Obsession as a block of the month project. I added my own choice of fabric for the borders.
I hand and machined pieced the quilt and the machine quilting was done by Fiona, the Quilting Fairy".
The fabric is 'Home School' range by L.B.Krueger. The design is 'Growing up Modern' by Allison Harris. I machine pieced and machine quilted the quilt.
BeBeBold at the recent quilt show in Brisbane and turned it into six cushions. Ideal for my outdoor table setting".
'OMG Not More Stars, but Moons Too'
I machine pieced and hand quilted the quilt".
The pattern was designed by T.Hylton for Patchwork Pumpkin".
' White House Hexagons'
Jaybird Quilts Hex'n' More ruler and my basket of quilt scraps. The ruler allowed me to use various pattern pieces to come up with this design. My husband said it looked like petit fours on a plate waiting to be nibbled. Hence the name.
I used my domestic Janome to heavily free motion quilt each piece of the wall quilt".
Michele Hill, inspired by a William Morris pattern created in 1883.
The all-cotton fabrics have been hand appliqued and hand quilted by me".
'Home is where your chickens come to roost'
"I started this quilt when all my children had left home and was suffering the empty nest syndrome. It has been a UFO for some years and now finally finished. The pattern is a Patchwork Pumpkin design.
The quilt was hand embroidered and then machine quilted by me".
'Thank You Mary Ellen'
I used a template package for stars and decided on the colour design.
The quilt is mostly hand pieced and hand quilted".
The quilt is hand pieced and hand quilted.
Was ever so taken with this cute little box of pink, yep, pink bobbins from Kim, one of the merchants at our Show, but just bowled over by the generosity of Inge who, when she spotted me sitting patting and playing with said bobbins, offered to fill them for me! yeah! really!
