Show n Tell February 2017

Well I really did have a long blog holiday didn't I? I had a great Xmas/New Year, having both my sons and a girlfriend staying for a few weeks.
I worked on and off over the holidays at Bernina Northland (more like having fun than working). But now everything is back to 'normal' if there is ever any such thing, and I'm back to work at school too.

So anyway here is some of the Show n Tell from the February Meeting. There was more but some of the photos didn't come out very good and I didn't get photos of everything either. Sorry if your item was missed out.

Made by Jane Robinson for her 9th grandchild.

Made by Helen Barnes, she won the fabrics in a fabric poker game, including the fabric for the back (some of which were millennium fabrics!)

Japanese Blossom Time made by Shirley Juilan

Made using several different 'Quilt As You Go' techniques so she could learn them all, by Gaylyn Barclay.

Picasso Vase made by Ros Baker made in Mary Transom's class at Symposium.

Made by Maureen Gray from blocks she won last year. Quilted by her daughter Raewyn.

Baby quilt made by Sonya Prchal for her first grandchild that's arriving soon.

Beautiful covered journals made by Shirley Julian
This is one of the great bags Dawn Dahlberg made for her grand daughters. Each small zippered bag has clear see-through plastic window,  and is velcroed onto the base . The whole lot rolls up and clips together too ( I forgot to get a photo of that).

Now these next few items I can't remember who's are who's! I usually take a photo of the items labels but as we were in the Pipe Band Hall and the show and tell wasn't hung up I couldn't do that.
If your item is below,comment or email me and I will update with names.

Show n Tell November 2016

Finally here is the Show n Tell from November. This time of year is a busy one, so I have been a bit slack about posting here. Sorry.

The Club Christmas Meeting is on this Saturday (10th Dec) at the Pipe Band Hall,
9 Rawhiti St, Morningside, Whangarei. Usual time of 12.30 noon onwards.
I won't be at the meeting as I have other commitments, so unless someone else sends me some photos there will be no Show n Tell from this meeting.

I think this one was made By Shelia Udjur from a pattern in NZ Quilter magazine by Jenny Hunter.
If I'm wrong about it belonging Shelia please let me know.

This Mug Bag was made by Alison McRae using scraps and quilt as you go techniques.
Love that button Alison.

Thread painted pet portrait by Lyn Madden made in class with Sonya Prchal.

Square Dance in Limes and Raspberries made by Kim Cairns, quilted by Wendy McGee.

Made by Helen Barron for her 18 year old nephew.

 These two Jelly Roll quilts (above and below) were made by Lynne Wilson.
I really like the cat silhouettes on the quilt below.


Another quilt made for Starship (National Children's Hospital) by Yvonne Davies.

Disappearing 4 Patch made by Fiona Carter for one of her Grand Daughters. Quilted by Wendy McGee.

Seaside Seahorses made for a Grand Niece by Rikki Going.

Lynne Topia made this quilt to showcase the rose fabric. Made from a pattern in Quilt Mania Magazine.

Quilt made by Shirley Julian for her Grandson.

Dolls made by Chris Cook.

I will be taking a break from blogging over the Holidays, so thanks for reading over the last year, see you back here in 2017

Auckland Festival of Quilts 2016

I went to the Auckland Festival of Quilts last Sunday, and here are some of the photos I took to share with you all.

I have never looked up and seen the large skylights before. 
No wonder this venue has good light!

Another overview from the top level
Here are some of the Quilts that appealed to me, in no particular order. Some have detail photos to show the quilting, and photos of their award ribbons
