'Jessica's Horses'
"Last year my Great Niece stated she had grown out of her baby quilt and could she have a new quilt made out of horses, but I decided to go with fabric instead.
The large horse panels are cushion cover panels, the smaller pieces are from the 'running wild' fabric range and the background horseshoe printed fabric was sourced for me by Brian of Brian's Fabrics".

'5 Minute Purple'
This quilt was made at a Buderim Craft Cottage workshop with June Sulzberger in 2011.  The workshop was on 5 minute blocks with Fat Quarters.
The quilt was machine pieced by me and quilted by Fiona of the Quilting Fairy".

'Scotia's Top Five'
"This is granddaughter Scotia's 13th birthday quilt.  She loves ballet, cups of tea, books, guitars and hugs.
This is an original design using a guitar image by Prairie Queen on the internet.  The fabric is from my stash.
The quilt was machine pieced and machine quilted by me".

'Oriental Dreams'
From my large stash of Oriental print fabrics.

'Christmas Wall Hanging'
This is an Indigo Niche design which I hand embroidered and machine quilted.

'Country Romance'

Machine pieced and appliqued lap quilt, bag and matching cushion.

'A Walk in the Park'

"I thought this design would make a lovely wedding quilt for my daughter.
I finally finished the quilt in February this year.
This is a Missouri Star Quilt Company design and was taught at the Patchwork Angel in 2013.
It was machine pieced, the machine quilting was done by Fiona, the Quilting Fairy.

'Jack's Chain'

 "The quilt was started in a class with Leesa Siegel last year.  My aim was to conquer 'set in' seams on a machine.  The block is a Hexagon surrounded by 9 patches and Triangles with every seam being a 'set in' seam.  I am planning on making another one!
The design is by Leesa Siegel.
The quilt is all machine pieced and quilted by me, the Quilting Fairy".

'Red Delight'
"This is my first hexagon quilt.  I just love the colour.
Machine quilted by Judy Davidson of Furball Farm Quilting."

Lorraine I.
'Blocks of Aqua'
 "This quilt featured on the front cover of Quilters Companion and was designed by Michelle Marvig.
I was in need of a new quilt for my bed and made it up but a lot bigger and with large borders to hang over the sides of the king sized mattress.  I followed Michelle's directions and made it quilt as you go, much kinder on old, damaged shoulders.
I love this quilt, making it and looking at it, until I put it on the bed and found the green tones of aqua I chose didn't go at all well in the blueish coloured aqua bedroom.  So I took off the large borders, took off one row of blocks and bound it to become my bed quilt for going away on quilting retreats.  I will eventually join up the sides and row of blocks into another quilt.
The quilt is my design.  I machine pieced and quilted it.

'Japanese Stepping Stones'
"Wanting to make a modern quilt and loved these fabrics with a white background.  The pattern is my design.  Machine pieced and professionally quilted by Judy at Furball Farm.

"This qult is a tribute to the wonderful people of Japan and their traditions, culture and food.
Purchasing the red, white and black kimono fabric at the Kyoto Kimono Museum brought back the memories of the previous week during our Japanese holiday when my husband and I stayed at a ryokan (traditional Japanese Inn) in Takayama.
Our personal host, Hanna (who was on call for 24 hours a day during our entire stay) told me I must wear traditional Japanese clothes for meals and patiently assisted me into my beautiful navy and red kimono.  It took awhile for her to explain the correct way to fold the kimono around me and then tie a perfect cummerbund bow behind me to hold it all in place.  I admit I did feel rather special wearing the kimono, but the cummerbund was pretty uncomfortable.
The red and black cotton fabric is of Japanese origin, purchased in Australia.  I used my domestic Janome to free motion quilt the various sashiko patterns, all of which have traditional meaning from mountains to fishing nets to the wind and trees.  The straight quilting lines represent the many people traveling en masse each day but never colliding.

'French Dresdens'
"I love this range of French General fabrics which lent itself to becoming Dresden Plates.
The pattern was designed by Majella at Kookaburra Cottage and inspired by Kookaburra Cottage - Carnival Star.
I hand and machine pieced the quilt and the machine quilting was done by Fiona, the Quilting Fairy 

Tote Bags
 Three of Sue's Totes, all with feature pockets on the front of the bags.  The totes were offered for sale as well as being part of the exhibition.

'Needleturn Sampler'
