October 22nd 2015

We were another small group this week, with many members travelling, on granny watch, not so well etc etc.
Let's hope numbers grow towards Christmas so we have a BIG Christmas party!

Not much news this week, except that next community day, in two weeks time, we will have a few experienced Accuquilt Go Cutter users demonstrating how to do it. Bring along any projects which require strips cut, including bindings for instance. That way it can be a very productive as well as a learning session. Preparation for some new community quilts would be a great start!

So on to Show and Tell!

This is the finished quick 'tube cutting' method quilt I have made for my niece'so 30th birthday. It has now been bound and quilted, and ready to hand over when she visits me at Christmas. All Kaffe fabrics. Phew!

                           


This quilt top was done by Robyn J after a trip to Lighting Ridge. Pieced in her caravan, she has called it "Lightning Strike". Very interesting block design, and gorgeous batik fabrics. 

                            


                             

Below you see the finished Contempoary Raffle Quilt looking stunning! The back looks great also.
Should sell plenty of tickets! Well done ladies all.

                              


                              


Below is an interesting quilt done by Suzie L after a recent trip to New York. I think the fabric was purchased there, and it depicts the skyscrapers beautifully. The yellow inset fabric is of the famous yellow taxis. Very cute idea. Suzie has called it "New York Night and Day".

                                


                                 


Below you can see a lovely quilt done by Judy G, as part of a class at Material Obsession with Megan.
There is plenty of 'fussy cutting' for the block designs, and Judy declares herself very proud and pleased with her hand quilting. Well done. I agree - it is very satisfying isn't it? 

                             

And a close-up of the fussy-cutting and the hand-quilting!

                                


I hope I have the next one correct. Apologies if not! From memory it is from the Tokyo Rose pattern by Carolyn D, pieced by Gil and quilted by Grace. Very attractive it is too. Nice fabric choice! Combined effort!

                                

And the back. A stunning piece of Kathy fabric if I'm not mistaken!

                                

The next one is by Gil again, started at the retreat I believe. It certainly has grown! Looking great, and very cute fabric!


                               

                               

And last but not least, our other stunning Raffle Quilt - The Traditional one this time. It has now been completely hand quilted by various members - many thanks to you all! The quilting looks fabulous, and the whole quilt is a triumph! Well done to Robyn Ja for coming up with the design and and driving the whole project. Great to have both raffle quilts completed and ready.
(And hey - anyone who can't see those circles and other patterns coming through now just can't be looking right!)




                                     


Well done everyone for yet another collection of great work. How do we do it each week? I guess we're just over-achievers, obsessed, workaholics, pleasure seekers............. You name it!

Cheers, enjoy you're weekend.
