Lots of drooling, and admiring of the tiny blanket stitches, on Lyn's new project today.  A couple of peeks at the borders of what is going to be a stunning kiddies quilt.

When Janet's 'scraps' were donated Julie was lucky enough to snaffle enough to make 2 quilts she will be donating to STEMM, she bought this one in today to share with us.

'There's a Bear in There', is what Marie has named this wonderful quilt she is making for a new Mum from her church.  It's being rushed off to the quilters to be ready for gifting when Mum and Bub come home from the hospital
Marie purchased the fabric at the Brisbane Quilt Show and decided the bears were just perfect for centers of these crazy Log Cabin blocks.

While scooting around the web Innes spotted this quilt in flannel fabrics from one of her fave fabric designers.....urrgh....for the life of me I can't think of the name, it has just slipped between the cracks of the old brain.  You all know who I mean though don't you??!!
Anyway it is stunning in the cutest motifs and lovely bright colours.
Innes' Grandies are of the 'teenage' group, so she is keeping this one for herself to snuggle under.  How could you have the winter blues under a quilt like this!

Julie won a fabric bundle as a door prize at the Patchwork Angel and turned the fabric into this great Table Runner.  Her Mum just fell in love with the colours but sadly the runner was not the right size for her table, so Julie 'ran up' these two place mats for her Mum this morning and bought them along to finish the binding while sitting and chatting today.

Jackie's Trunk Show - Part 1

Another wonderful trunk show presented to the Thursday night girls, this time the Wednesday arvo girls were also lucky enough to have Jackie bring along her huge array of crafting works.
Thanks again to Debby and her helpers for the pics and words.

Jackie has been very creative from a very young age.  Most of her quilts, wall hangings, table runners etc. are hand sewn.  It's Jackie's passion.  Only a couple of the quilts from her show and tell have been machine pieced.
Here Jackie shows off some of her earlier fancy needlework.  Doily, A trapunto cushion cover, macrame - I think we have all done one of those!! and a needlepoint sampler in greens.

More pillows, all hand stitched.

Jackie continued to make these 9 green blocks after doing a previous course.

A lovely felt worked Christmas Tree skirt with sequins

Two more examples of Jackie's lovely needle point cushions.

Jackie made this folded star in 1984 at a class in America.

Jackie used flannelette as wading in this pineapple design quilted wall hanging.  All hand stitched and hand quilted.

Amish Doll and a lovely Chinese Coin design wall hanging.

A lovely navy and cream wall hanging with lots of flying geese!
