Yvonne's Trunk Show

Another wonderful Trunk Show from the Thursday Night Group, this time featuring the lovely and varied work of Yvonne, a new member to our Patchwork Group
Thanks again to Debby and Letitia for making it possible for us all to share Yvonne's treasures.

Yvonne has had no formal sewing lessons. She did sew for her children when they were younger and this is her first quilt that she made for her daughter 15 years ago.

Yvonne said it's a bit faded but her daughter has it on her bed & it's well loved.

A very large log cabin quilt. it belongs on her queen size bed & reaches the floor.

Yvonne's first embroidery quilt, a quilt as you go that Yvonne quilted on her sewing machine.
A closer view of some of the beautifully worked machine embroidery.

Using bali pop prints, Yvonne created this innovative design.   Yvonne said
she doesnt like it, she only liked the middle pattern so she just kept adding!!!

This puffy 'heart' quilt is a favourite of Yvonne's grandson, he loves to  lie on this ever so soft quilt.

This quilt started as a knee rug with some machine embroidery. We don't think Yvonne can do small!!!

This is a smaller quilt which has been recently done - cot size - Yvonne is hoping for twin grand daughters one day

A Table Runner in a design that many quilters have made but with the clever use of colour Yvonne has created a completely different effect.

With clever use of embroidered trees & farm scenes Yvonne created this small blue and green quilt. Very interesting.

More machine embroidery, two lovely machine embroidered cushion covers.

Beautifully embroidered and sprinkled with sequins, a Xmas stocking for grandson Jake

Machine embroidered Washer and tea towel, and a doylie that Yvonne created when she was at high school, hand embroidered with crocheted the edges .

Lace work done on the embroidery machine - just beautiful work & more gorgeous doylies.

Yvonne has also made lots of baby things but has given heaps away.  
Thank you so much Yvonne for sharing your lovely quilting with us & welcome to our group as well. - Debby.

Hi there this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors
or if you have to manually code with HTML.
I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Greetings from Colorado! I'm bored to tears at work so I decided to browse your website on my iphone during lunch break. I love the information you provide here and can't wait to take a look when I get home.
I'm shocked at how fast your blog loaded on my mobile .. I'm
not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyhow, very good site!

Hey there! I realize this is somewhat off-topic but I needed to ask.

Does running a well-established blog like yours require a lot of work?
I am completely new to writing a blog however I do write in my journal
everyday. I'd like to start a blog so I will be able to share my experience and views online. Please let me know if you have any recommendations or tips for new aspiring blog owners. Appreciate it!

Appreciating the time and effort you put into your website and in depth information you provide.
It's nice to come across a blog every once in a while that isn't the same out of date rehashed

I was curious if you ever thought of changing the layout of your site?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures.
Maybe you could space it out better?

Hi there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering if you knew where
I could find a captcha plugin for my comment form?
I'm using the same blog platform as yours and I'm having problems finding
one? Thanks a lot!

Howdy! It appears as though we both have a interest for the same thing.
Your blog, "Blogger: BUDERIM PATCHWORK" and mine
are very similar. Have you ever considered authoring a guest
write-up for a similar website? It will unquestionably help gain publicity to your blog (my site recieves a lot of visitors).
If you might be interested, contact me at: kristinmosby@animail.

Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
The text in your post seem to be running off
the screen in Safari. I'm not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured I'd post to let you know.

The design look great though! Hope you get the issue solved
soon. Many thanks
