Marlene's Trunk Show

After much delay, for which I do apologise, we finally have Marlene's Trunk Show for your enjoyment. 
Thanks again to Debbie and Letitia for the pics and words.

Marlene amazed us with all her quilts. She has made so many for family & friends & many more that she has given away over the short years she has been quilting. Thank you Marlene for sharing your beautiful creations with us. We had a great night.

Marlene began patchwork in 1988 at Waverley, Victoria.

Marlene's traditional sampler quilt, all hand pieced.
This gorgeous Wedding Ring quilt was her 2nd quilt she made. Marlene made it for her daughter Maureen, again hand quilted, the colours have faded over the years but just lovely.
A very complicated pattern for your second quilt. Very clever girl.

Reversable blocks (log cabin) these were left overs from a quilt she made for her son.

ABC quilt for her grandchild

Red & green Irish chain with shamrock quilting
Marlene always made a bag for each quilt she made. How impressive is that!

This quilt made for her daughter 16 years ago. She lives up in the tropics & fabric fades even if it doesn't see the sun.

Oh, this is gorgeous Marlene, a reverse log cabin in vibrant colours. Maybe you could do a class on reverse log cabin some time?

Marlene has made five of these Xmas quilt. She made one & everyone wants one!! She is a good mum.

 Marlene has made a Redwork pieced & stitched quilt, lovely.

Second smaller quilt made with leftover fabrics, very cute.

A Kaleidoscope quilt in reds & greens.

This was a kit. The Outback quilt.

Oh this is a warm, snuggly flannelette rag quilt. We should all have at least one of these in our homes on these cold winter nights.

Crazy blocks, June's sampler quilt.

Pink & green puzzle quilt. The quilting cost more than the fabric.
