2013 Quilt Show -Part 1

'Love and Lace'
Created by Sheila

Original design inspired by the book "Smashing Sets' by Margaret J. Miller.
Made in 2012 for my 13 year old granddaughter who likes purple.
Fabrics mostly from my stash with a centre panel of Nottingham lace (a gift from 17 years ago) in memory of time my granddaughter spent in London.
Double T blocks are for her parents surname initals and hearts are for love.
Quilt is machine pieced and machine quilted on my domestic sewing machine, featuring a decorative heart stitch.

'Just Use the Stash'
Created by Beryl
Made in a workshop with Lynn Hewitt at SC&C Quilters Guild workshops at Cobargo, NSW in 2009.
Finally finished in 2012.  I didn't want the journey to end.
Pieced and quilted by self.

 'Hidden Triangles'
Created by Innes
A Lisa Walton design featured in Quilters Companion #20 vol 5.4 using fabrics from Lisa's outlet 'Dyed and Gone to Heaven'.
Machine quilted by Robyn Mchardie

'Elephant Walk'
Created by Marie
This is one of those fabrics that you take out and look at it and then put it away again, not sure how to use it.  I ended up designing this quilt.  I felt it as an exotic fabric so I embroidered the beautiful elephants to tone with the fabric.  The elephant is a machine embroidery design from Sue Box.  I have quilted it on my domestic sewing machine

'Beyond Art Deco Glass'
Created by Pat
a closer view of some of Pat's quilting
A love of art deco design and architecture led me to visit the Musee des Annees 30 in Boulogne Billancourt, Paris during a recent holiday in Europe.  The wonderful display of furniture was breathtaking.  A bedroom screen, four panels in all, took my eye.  Very simple in black and brown timber with the most strikingly beautiful glass inserts of various shapes, sizes and designs.  This quilt is my interpretation of one panel of this screen.l  I have used white or cream tone on tone fabric to replicate the glass panels.  Quilting was completed on my domestic sewing machine using a shimmering polyester thread to give the impression of the various patterns used on glass during this period of design.  The original art deco screen, made in 1930, was made by Master Glassmakers Louis Barillet (1800-1948) and Jacques Le Chevallier (1896-1987)

'Teddybear Tea Party'
created by Julie
By Teddlywinks.
A kit bought on a Quilters Trail trip a few years ago.
Now made up for my grand-niece together with a quilt for her doll's cot.
Quilted by Quilting Fairy

'Spinning Tops'
Created by Marcia
 This happy quilt was started at a workshop given by one of our group members, June/
It started as a lap quilt but just kept growing because I loved working with all the bright colours from my 'stash'.
I machined pieced the quilt top and had it machine quilted by Carmen Brown.
