October addings

Rae is quite new to classes but very keen and with a layer cake Rae has produced this lovely simply designed quilt then beautifully quilted by Sue of quiltessence. Great result.
Mags from Wednesday class has been exploring the blocks of Margeret Miller's book Angleplay. What a stunning result.

This is a copy of Sandies garden table quilt copied from my sisters I have. Sandie made so many strip next month should show matching cushions. Lovely. So doing circular not so hard.

My sister Beryl gave me a circular garden quilt. This inspired Barbara to make one for herself and a beauty. Without a pattern we copied her ideas. Well done Barbara.

September additions

These 2 pictures are of Trish's clamshells quilt. The back and the front. It was all made by hand and designed by Trish. well done.

This is another of sharron's quilts. The centre of each block has a cat. This pattern seems to be getting featured in a lot of books this year. Well done Sharron.

My niece Rachel was married September 13th and I made this quilt as her wedding present. Sue of quiltessence did the quilting and Rachel and Tom her husband were delighted. Guess what her sister Sarah is getting married next year so it looks like another one will be made next year.

Sharron from the thursday afternoon group has just finished this jelly roll quilt. Sharron did not buy a jelly roll but just cut her own chosen fabrics so you can still dip into your stash to produce one of those patterns. Sharrons quilt was machine quilted by a friend.

Hooray! I got a 3rd under the category of Bed Quilts. Sorry the pictures a bit fuzzy.
My entry for Sandown 2009

Susanne has spent so many hours quilting this beautiful quilt made to match the picture behind the bed. Do not be afraid to wash your quilts on a gentle wash in the washing machine. Susanne did and it really enhanced the quilting.

Well Done Ineke and at last those geese have beaks.
