2017 Quilt Exhibition - Part Five

Our Cottage is holding the Annual Buderim Winter School this week, so no Patchwork meeting for us--sob sob.
To help us all over the disappointment, here are the last of the Exhibition quilts, but before we zoom down the lines of lusciousness, there are more Very Very Big THANK YOU's to Sue Andrew and her team of helpers for the splendid job they did setting up the exhibition and Wendy Tame and her team of helpers for their equally splendid job running the kitchen and suppyling the delicious eats, without these hard workers the Exhibition would not be the success it was.

Sandy King
'Paris Meets St. Kilda'
I made this quilt in a class conducted by Ann Ferguson. I love the design and have since made another one for a friend.

Everyone loves Teddies! I really enjoyed doing the embroidery blocks. Then add Lynette Anderson fabrics and what more can you ask for!
Inspired by love of embroidery!
I love the result and hope you do too!

Marlene Hogan
I had no plans for more poppies until I saw this fabric in spotlight. I saw half of this pattern in an advertisment on Facebook. I took a photo and then did lots of sums
It proved a good exercise for the grey matter.

This quilt looked easy when I saw it on "Pinterest". The best part - I had all the fabric in my stash!

Fabric Art, Surface Design, Paper and Fibre Group
The girls from Fibre Art have an exhibition every second year, same as we do, but as the exhibitions are on alternate years the Fiber Arts gals display our annual Lyn Ballinger Challenge at their exhibition and we display their Group Challenge at our exhibition, a great system that suits us all, mind you, over the years these talented ladies have increased the types of mediums they work with and so of course their group's name has also had to expand, encompasing all their many talents

2017 Group Challenge
This year the groups challenge was to contribute to an instillation based on the theme'Seasons'.
Each member had to create leaves or flowers in their chosen medium. These were then used to construct a work which could be used as a window pelment or wall hanging.
The finished work is a credit to the 30 members who contributed. All materials were hand dyed and handmade. Mediums used include, felt, silk, cotton and paper.

Our Mystery Quilt.
On a visit to a local sister quilting group's exhibition many of our members were taken with the display of a mystery quilt the Mooloolah Valley quilters had done, they proudly displayed their quilts on stage showing off the many variations derived from the one pattern. Our members present promptly elected Wendy to co-ordinate and organise a quilt for our group to create, luckily she agreed, mind you, we did get her to say the words 'I agree' before we fessed up to what she had agreed to. Wendy did a stirling job, from a rough sketch of a block given to her by a 'Pinterest' surfing group member she wrote the assembly directions and even gave us a couple of block layout options and quilt sizes. Wendy also decided to make the directions 2.5" strip friendly for those of us wanting to use a jelly roll as well as being easy for those who wanted to do a scrappy quilt. These are the amazing results, we all had a ball creating our quilts. Thank You Wendy, for all of your hard work.

Lorraine Irvine
Mystery for a Service Person
Wendy created a mystery quilt for us to tackle. I found this bundle of gorgeous fabrics from the same fabric range in my cupboard. They had been there for awhile and there was no pattern, no notes or no picture of what they were for.
Because of the different amounts of each fabric with several of the fabrics being the same amount it looked as though I had bought it for a purpose. Well, life gets in the way sometimes and the purpose of these fabrics is long gone. I decided to use them for the mystery quilt then made extra blocks. It will be sent to a person serving somewhere overseas for Australia under the Aussie Hero Quilt program. I hope that someone gets good use from it and knows that they are thought of for the work they are doing for me and everyone else. There is also a matching laundry bag to go with the quilt so it will be easy to find their clean clothes when they come back on the trailer.
