This quilt was made using a T-block pattern and quilt-as-you-go ... joining each block with a finished half inch strip front and back. She was busy joining for her short visit Wednesday afternoon.
Both quilts were gifted on Saturday night at her brothers surprise 'Big O' birthday party. Her sister-in-law also had a 'Big O' surprise party earlier in the year but the quilts have been in the pipe line till now.
"Double Choc" was for SIL and "Toffee Bon Bon" (below) was for her brother.
Narelle made this log cabin quilt using quilt-as-you-go also ... no strips.

This is the first horses panel completed. There was also an embroidered heart quilt using the techniques learnt at Monto. She is now probably nearly finished the second horse quilt in progress on Wednesday.Margaret has been inspiring Sandra and has been completing her 3 John Deere quilts for her grandchildren in NZ. This photo shows 1 quilt plus 3 pillows. She has also quilted a panel for her family back in NZ. She certainly has a few busy weeks ahead of her.
Fay has been busy renovating houses and solving car problems so finally got to touch a sewing machine last Wednesday and continued working on her applique house and garden quilt.
See we do actually get stuck into it.
Ruth has finished her third kaliedoscope quilt and is currently working on the fourth. This will be all of her fabric purchased on the shopping trip used up instead of languishing in the cupboard. Anna finally made it along to actually sew with us despite some of us nearly fainting on her arrival. She is working on a small bear quilt. She must have known something about the power as she came for the time while the power was off at home. Narelle finished work and came for the afternoon. Hopefully she will add photos of the afternoon session. Patty has been extremely busy at work so unfortunately could not join us. Kath has been the quiet one lately but is certainly coming along to the Bundaberg Quilters Friendship Day in June.
June 13 will see us entertained at The Family Centre at the Showgrounds for their Friendship Day. There will be raffles , quilts to look at and of course food. Bring along 2 or 3 quilts for show and tell. Further details about time and travelling arrangements should be available for our next sewing day. Hope to see you there.
