2013 Quilt Show - Part 3

'Baltimore Revisited'
Created by Sue
Block patterns include those by Dianne Johnston (who introduced me to applique some years ago), Jeana Kimball and Jane Townswick, some favourite designs from an earlier quilt and new ones which appealed.
Techniques are  needleturn, reverse applique and vliesofix/buttonhole, all by hand
Machine quilted by Esther Strelen and hand quilting by me.

'Teddybears Picnic'
Created by Judith
This wall hanging was made in 2012 as the Challenge for "Birds of a Feather" the group I belong to in Brisbane.  The brief was to interpret a song title and I chose 'Teddy Bears's Picnic' after much deliberation.  Once the decision was made I enjoyed collecting the fabrics and the designing process.
Then I pieced, appliqued, embroidered, embellished with buttons and shaded with colour pencils before quilting and finishing the wall hanging.

'Girls Night Out'

Designs by Teddlywinks, Victoria.
Hand buttonhole using Vliesofix, Machine quilted by Esther Strelen.
For our granddaughter.

'Turkish Delight'
Created by Marcia.
A small group from the Patchwork Group decided to do this delightful quilt when on of the 'girls' saw it in a quilt magazine last year.  It was called 'May Flowers' and designed by Joanne Ridley, however we have decided to call ours --- Delight, hence mine is 'Turkish Delight' for the luscious pink fabric used for the borders.
I used one jelly roll plus extra fabric to enlare it to a queen size quilt.
I pieced the quilt top and appliqued daisies by machine and had it machine quilted by Carmen Brown.
It was a fun quilt to do.

'Our Fist Grandchild's Quilt'
Created by Chris
Inspired by a Natalie Ross quilt, 'Going Bananas' made for our first grandchild who lives in the Tropics, I used the inspiration to make this wall hanging.
I made it shorter, changed the tree, got rid of one monkey and added more bananas using lighter coloured fabrics, machine pieced and quilted but with hand sewn applique.
Its the fastest I've ever completeda anything, proving a time limit helps to inspire!!  Baby Oscar was born a little early so I raced up North with just the binding to complete.  New Mum decided to use it as a play mat, and since then it has been used by 12 other babies when Mothers' Group is held at her house.  It's already been washed several times in the machine.

'Disappearing Nine Patch'
Created by Janice
I love these soft colours and have made several qults in this design.  Machine pieced and quilted by Judy of Furball Farm Quilting. Bamboo batting
