Workshop Progress

Congratulations to Vida who has finished (including quilting) the Stack and Whack quilt that she commenced in Fay's workshop last November.
Last month Lyn presented a workshop on circular bargello-style quilts. Joan (3 circles) and Patricia (2 circles) were delighted with their progress and brought along their works-in-progess to share with Club members.

Show and Tell Continues

Our ladies are continuing to produce some wonderful quilts through the month of February. This is Gerry's version of the twisted bargello by Chris Timmins which was published a few years ago now in Patchwork and Quilting mag.
Good work Gerry!
Heather has finished her top from Robyn Ginn's workshop last year and is in the process of hand quilting it. This is a marvellous feat from Heather as she is recovering from a broken arm. She is the first to finish, so well done Heather.
Here is a close up of one of the 'tiles'. The quilt blocks are a combination of hand qpplique and embroidery and take design elements from the feature fabric.
Judy with her fabulously colourful strip pieced blocks. The remnants from her wonderful "chook quilt". We look forward to seeing what Judy makes with her strip blocks.
