Show & Tell November (Page 2)

Ellen has been visiting family in the US for a few months.  She finished the following quilts whilst away – she has been busy.

The first 2 are for her grandson and are a pair of quilts for twin beds, called The Underground Railroad quilt.  There is quite a bit of history to this design. I am still reading a book about this which I purchased in the US almost 2 years ago!


Ellen2  Both these quilts were hand-quilted


The next pictures are a double bed sized quilt, using a Disappearing Nine Patch design made with orginal 1940s fabrics.  This quilt has been machine quilted



They are really lovely quilts Ellen. 

Show & Tell November 2010

A good few things to show off this month…

Tiiu's dish

Tiiu’s fabric dish which a friend made for her


Debbie’s hand-pieced and appliqued quilt from a jelly-roll – her first quilt (I stand to be corrected though!).  It looks fabulous


Tiiu’s challenge mini quilt; the challenge from her group in Perth.  The fish block is copied from the Group’s badge


Tiiu’s made from left-over fabric from the one above


Kate’s BOM quilt from a Sue Ross design. It looks awesome!


Kate’s “Red Centre” – for one of her boys. It is a pattern from Material Obsession


Kate’s baby quilt – a work in progress, but hopefully it will be finished and off to it’s new owner before the next Show & Tell. Forgotten the name of the block – a Gwen Marston design?  Skillfully uses Kate’s stash of beautiful Liberty fabrics.


Tiiu’s really expensive bag-to-be, made in a class at Rosie’s with a visiting Japanese tutor (name?)
