This is such a fun and colourful quilt! Put together by Judy F. Judy is so creative.
She has put all the hexagons together by hand.

This mermaid becomes this:

This single mermaid 'chopped up' forms the following kaleidescope blog.

Isn't this swirling mermaid just the cutest block?

Clever ! Well done Judy.

Show and Tell February Part 1

Oriental Mosaic by Marilyn C. Marilyn appliqued by hand and put the blocks together by machine and machine quilted it herself.

Show and tell at February's meeting was colourful and abundant. Members have been very busy over the summer break and the heat hasn't deterred them one bit!

Log Cabin with a Twist by Patricia R. Patricia found this one a challenge as she had never tried the paper piecing technique before and this one was complex.

Sharing Australia with Alexander by Diana R. Diana has made this for her grandchild Alexander who lives in England but loves all things Australian. This is her own design and depicts the various landscapes of Australia. Alexander will receive this soon as Diana is about to jet off to England.

Bali Stars by Marilyn C. Marilyn had this lovely collection of batiks and wanted to make a star quilt. Stunning.

Part 4 of The Largest Hexagon quilt which is being constructed for possible entry into the Guiness World Records. Many of our members have made flower hexagons for the quilt. The quilt will be completed by May.
This part is 5.5 mtrs long and contains 21,743 hexagons. Wonder who counted them? Maybe it was our member Lyn C who quilted this section. Well done everyone and good luck with the judging.

This little fellow was checking out all the colour and he was given to Lyn L at Christmas at her Doll's group break-up. He was made from instructions from here.

There is more fabulous finishes to come. Look out for Part 2 coming shortly.
