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.
