I couldn’t believe that everyone’s quilts looked so
different, but I guess it all comes down to the colour selections & the way you place
your blocks.

I was lucky to be able to enjoy a workshop with June and this is my result. It
was fun! I did so enjoy the pattern coming together. It is bright and busy - reminds
me of a packet of Smarties. Hand quilted by yours truly.

 House and Gardens I did so enjoy creating No 2 so turned to No 3, House and Gardens, which shows
birds, flowers, home and colours I love very much. I kept to the ‘quilt as you go’
method for this quilt and included a Russian Punch block trying free motion
quilting. Applique` seemed a good idea too and blocks were sourced and tutored
by Darren to all the ladies learning.

 'Serpentine Quilt'

This quilt is a Moda pattern by Susan Allen. The pattern called for 5” charm squares
but I decided to use my Ricky Tims fabric which I cut into the 5” squares. By using
the green fabric with the Ricky Tims fabric it has made this a very bright quilt.

 'Crazy Maze'
Created by Marie

I downloaded this free pattern from the internet. The name of the pattern is Bento

Box but I have called mine Crazy Maze because I lost my way in joining the pieces

but my Quality Controller {husband} put me on the straight and narrow. The quilt is

made with a Jelly roll and strips that I cut. I quilted it on my domestic sewing

machine and the quilting looks crazy too.

'Plain Sailing'
Created by June

Designed for a table on my son's yacht. It was pieces cut to go around a curve. It

had to be individually pieced and I could not use paper piecing as each piece had

to be pinned and looked at carefully. There are 64 points. My son really loves it.

Now". I added an extra panel at the top and bottom of the quilt and as I really liked
the cheeky cats I made them a feature of the quilt.

'Crazy Black Evening Bag'
created by Debby
A few years ago I decided to make five Christmas stockings for each of my family
members. Crazy can take lots of T I M E!!!!!!! Three years later, only two Christmas
stockings have been completed…I’m still unsure if I’m going to start the next
three??? This is quite masculine with all of the dark colours and I couldn’t complete
a lot of crazy on this stocking as the fabrics are too busy. Lets just see how many I
complete before Christmas this year. Pattern & Sewing Instructor: Jenny Clouston

I am a beginner quilter, and a member of the Thursday night Buderim Quilting
group. This reversible log cabin quilt was made from the inspiration and guidance
from Marlene Hogan of the same group. It is all machine pieced and stitched by
myself and made from my scraps. Marlene gave up many of her Sundays to give
me free tuition; I am very appreciative that she gave me her time. This little quilt
sits proudly in my guest bedroom.

'Butterflies of Love'
created by Beryl
Pattern variation of a Joanne Ridley Quilt. Made for my granddaughter. Pieced and
quilted by me.

Created by Pat
I have named this quilt after the lovely town of Lowell in Massachusetts, USA, where
I visited the New England Quilt Museum. At the time a wonderful display of quilts
from the American Civil War were being shown. They were owned by a private
collector who happened to be there when we visited. She told us many stories
about some of the quilts, the difficulties of obtaining cloth at the time and the love
and heartache that the wives and mothers and daughters had sewn into those
quilts. It was very interesting and moving. I purchased some reproduction material
from the museum and decided to make a quilt using the English paper piecing
method. A simple hexagon pattern and simple outline quilting produced a pleasing
to the eye quilt for the bed.
