Show & Tell April/May

As the photographer is heading off for a couple of weeks (Janice) we had Show & Tell a week earlier than usual.

First Alison had a quilt for a small boy in retro prints sourced from Australia.




And a baby quilt (still a top) made from a small pack of fat 1/8s plus white sashing and borders.













Next, Carmen showed us the finished Crazy quilt she has made for her In-Laws.  We have watched this quilt come together

over the past couple of months and it looks amazing.  Lots of embroidery, beads and buttons have been added which look great.

Not being able to find the pearl buttons she wanted in Singapore,  Carmen has raided her wardrobe and used some from her clothes.  Be careful wearing those any time soon Carmen!

Maurine showed us the cushions she has made with tied & removable covers – a very clever idea.  The ties at the back have a jade ornament which really sets them off well.
