We often search for quilts to suit male recipients. Tuesday night Grace showed us the quilt she had made as a quilt as you go. She used the log cabin pattern

Our April Meeting




Ann McW has finally finished a beautiful quilt which she started in 2009 at her very first quilting retreat.  The colours are beautiful with some hints of gold!  Hurrah for UFOs.  It is never too late to finish them!


Take note of the beautiful iris fabric on the back.







Sheila proudly displayed her Field of Flowers with the striking black background.

The floral appliqué looks very effective!








And Judy V continues to work on her wonderful multi-pocket sewing cases. She had two for us to admire at the meeting.





There is a lot happening in the quilting world so make sure you check out the tabs at the top of our BLOG.  You will find details of our group and elsewhere in the quilting world.

More Tuesday Treasures

There was a lot of colour and talent on show last Tuesday, our monthly meeting night.  Enjoy the feast!


Ann McWaters was finishing the binding on a 'long lost quilt' destined as a gift for her sewing machine repairman! 

The use of the small squares is a simple but effective way to use pretty fabrics.



Gail was busy completing a baby quilt which is a great achievement having quilted it herself!


The photo does not do credit to the vibrant colours and silk fabric.

Sheila impressed us all with her two contributions! The first was a wall hanging called In my Window Flowers Bloom,  a pattern by Esther Aliu.  There is a link to Esther's BLOG and others on the right side of this page.





The second is almost complete and is another Esther pattern called Secret Garden.  It has been fifteen months in the making!  There is so much detail!




Barb has created a wonderful quilt using hexagons, great stash buster.  She just keeps soldiering on with these hexagons!







And Grace shared her lovely purple quilt which she has quilted herself!




We should all be inspired now!!

Another photo from today
Saturday
What is under your needle today?
I heard a rumour we may offer some workshops on a Saturday coming up. More info to come. I was ready to take photos today but this is some of the work tackled,






Saturday Sit and Sew.

Sorry I have been a bit slack in posting up dates.  Saturdays has welcomed new members and some visitors. Don't forget you can invite your friends along for a visit. If they like what they see they have an opportunity to join. 
Kate is always busy. She brought along a quilt which is stunning. So stunning I can't show it as she is  going to enter it into a show and hence it can't bbe viewed before hand.
Both Kate and Robyn had worked on the same design. The had both worked on "Square Dance". It was interesting to put them side by side and see the difference colour choices make
  
Evelyn has made the great wall hanging using batik fabric. I know there was pressure to have it completed as it is a gift for her mother overseas.
