Tuesday Show and Tell

 
Yvonne has made this bright, cheerful, funky quilt for her Neice's 21st birthday.  She was tieing it on Tuesday with some gorgeous multi-coloured sashiko thread.
Five of the blocks are the big beautiful blue flower print. Nice work Yvonne.
 
 
WOW.  Jan  G has completed her scattered tile quilt which she started in Robyn Ginn's workshop.  Sure is bright and beautiful, Jan.
 
Fabulous Medallion quilt put together by Denise.  Denise has had this professionally quilted by Kathy Adams of Kool Kat Quilting, Toowoomba.
Here is a close up of the centre medallion.  Denise has used a quirky strip in the centre piece (not showing up well in the photo).  It works really well.  A lovely quilt, Denise.
 
Here is a bit of a twist on the sashiko - black and white - by Wendy.  Wendy has combined her sashiko pieces with some cute black and white blocks.  Lovely.
