2017 Quilt Exhibition - Part Four

You've heard of the good news and the bad news?...
well, we have some delightful news and some real custard curdling news...
The delightful..
Meet Leigh, first prize winner of our raffle quilt 'Weeroona'.
Leigh is delighted to have won and will be putting 'Weeroona' on her guest bed where she will see it each time she passes by.
Big Thanks to Lainey for making the trip to present Leigh with her winner and forwarding the pic for us to enjoy.

More Big Thank You's go to some special guys who although are not members of our group, certainly are part of the Patchwork support team, Nathan, Steve, Lionel, Ross, Paul, Geoff and John. Thank you so much guys for all the hard work you did to help our group hold one of the best Exhibitions ever.

and now, the custard curdler...
Sheila has fallen out of love with Charlie,
yep, her cute as a button 'Granddog' Charlie, who looks like butter wouldn't melt in his mouth, has done the unforgiveable,
dunno Charlie, will you ever get back into the good graces? or are you to be forever spurned?...oh dear...A fast trip downtown to snaffle a cheapie pair of 'reader' glasses and a trip to the optometrist when Sheila gets home, I reckon Charlie has some hard work ahead to get over this one.
On a happier note, Sheila's Grandie loves his basketball quilt.
Unlike Charlie, whats not to love? a stunning vibrant quilt.

Heather Tucker
'Koi Quilt'
I purchased this as a kit complete with fabric from the Craft Fair in Perth
I was looking for a quilt suitable for my son and I loved the design of the Koi panel and the significance of the Koi swimming up the waterfall.
"In Japanese culture the Koi is thought to be a symbol of luck, prosperity and good fortune. The Koi fish has a powerful and energetic life force, demonstrated by its ability to swim against currents and travel up stream.
Koi fish symbolism encompasses numerous positive qualities related to courage, overcoming adversity, the ability to attain the highest goals and strong character."

Heather Tucker
'Blue and White Delight'
Having always liked the freshness of a blue and white colour scheme it was easy to fall in love with this delightful little wall hanging!
This work will hang above the bed in the guest room where it can be seen by visiting family and friends with whom we all share many moments and create many memories.
I purchased this as a kit complete with pattern, fabric and buttons from Giggle Buttons.
The embroidery is all done by hand

After purchasing some cat fabric in Japan, the next stop was how to use it. The design was so enjoyable to make as the black cats seem to wrap themselves around you. I think my Japanese fabric with the small black cats really suit this design.
Straight line quilting, some with a slight curve to emphasise the cats arching backs
