Here she is, with some of her work behind her. She showed slides of some of her quilts, which was certainly easier than trying to see them held up! I must say, it was probably the first time it was easier to see the slides, than the quilts! Most of her quilts were less than 12" square, and some of them were considerably less!
Here are a couple of log cabin quilts. Sarah uses lots of striped borders, as she finds she has lots of tiny scraps which she likes to use up. What a clever -and thrifty- idea!
Everyone enjoyed being able to examine the piecing and quiting in Sarah's work close to.
Then to show and tell. Lots of people seemed to have had some sewing time over the festive period, judging by the numbers of quilts which were shown. This one is mine for Project Linus. It is specifically for an 8 year old girl with cancer, who likes pink and purple. The border has pink and purple mermaids on it, which should go down well.
Beverly had finished this lovely cot quilt for her new grandson. The turquoise and brown fabrics in this quilt look so soft and cuddly.Doreen was making this Japanese folded design for her daughter. The colours are stunning, both front and back! Apparently it's "not big enough", so she will be enlarging it. Good luck with that!Di had bought a charm pack, and was going to make a runner for the bottom of her bed. She made half of it, and decided it wouldn't be nearly big enough, so made it up into a wall-hanging. The colour gradation on this one is lovely.Ruth had been sewing for Linus, since her return from Australia. Here is a simple cot quilt in pastel colours.
Betty is indeed industrious, and showed three more quilts! This one was to showcase some feature fabrics brought on a trip downunder. What a clever idea.These are hexagons made without papers, a technique she was generous enough to thank Paula for showing her.And last but not least, a stunning Baltimore quilt she assembled using quilt as you go! Fabulous!The next meeting will be a Techniques Workshop, so look out for examples and requirements lists soon.
