SHOW AND TELL
Penne has two contributions for today. Alison M. is quilting them for her. Both lovely bright colours and very different from each other.
Well done Penne this one could brighten anyone’s day.
Again, Penne a lovely quilt.
Ursula has been busy sewing her donation quilt for the flood victims.
Some child will love this cute quilt.
Neil has started a new project and let us have a sneak peek. Japanese fabrics, diamond shapes. Wait and see the end result. I am sure it will be a masterpiece as usual.
Looks lovely so far Neil. Just love the colour combinations.
This next photo has not been created by Alison herself but her DAD about 40 years ago. It is a lovely baby shawl that her Dad made for one of his grandchildren. Family tradition was that he made a shawl for each new baby. Alison has kept it safe all this time but will be returning it to England on her next trip in a few weeks. Looks as good today as back then.
Beautiful job Alison, your Dad would be proud of how well you have looked after his efforts.
Dianne L. has been her very crafty self and located the following in an OP shop. Unfortunately she is missing blocks 6,7,8 & 9. I have tried to located the pattern but to no success.
Is there anyone out there who recognises this pattern and can help Dianne to locate some instructions so her find can be completed?
Don’t forget Zone Day on Saturday 13th August at Grafton Showground in the ‘Barn’ by 9.30am for 10.00am start. Don’t forget your fat quarter and cotton as your donation. Bring your mug and lunch. See you there.
I know Christmas is still a few months away, BUT we need plenty of time to prepare the Christmas Challenge. This year it is to do 2 x Heart Blocks. It appears that our Heart block book is lacking blocks.
They should be 7″ squares (so they can be cut to a 6-1/2″ block },with a heart of your choosing in the middle of the block. Background fabric should be cream or beige (check the binder for inspiration.). Do not sign your name on the block until after the judging at the Christmas Party. Then sign them, with a Micron Art Pen, before placing them in the Binder under your name.
We have a stash of Heart blocks in a binder ready for use when one of our members needs reminding that they are not alone, and the Group is there for them. The heart blocks are kept in a binder in plastic sleeves with each members name on the sleeve. When needed the heart blocks are retrieved from the binder and presented to the member for them to assemble, a reminder of a group hug. They can make a quilt or table runner or whatever they want from the heart blocks supplied.
