Class show and tell

I’m back!  Been attending to some domestic matters of late – all good, just time consuming.  So, there’s a little catching up to do, and I’ll start with last week’s class show and tell.


I helped Beth choose the backgrounds and borders for her “CarouselCarole has more of her background pieces stitched inSue E has 4 blocks completed and we chose fabrics for a few moreDenise cut the centre pieces for her two and Jo and I worked on a couple more for her to stitch over coming weeksAfternoon

Remember the pile of cut pieces from the previous week that Frances stitched into sets?  Well, here’s the finished quilt top!and she hand cut the bordersJane had some show and tell too; her finished “Sweethearts” quilt (pattern by Susan Ambrose)and Jane continued on with her DWR piecesAnne joined us for the first time and had a lesson in hand quilting, ready to start quilting this top (pattern from Treehouse Textiles – one of their BOM’s, I think)Tineke started putting border blocks togetherHelen finished off one hexie block (see the cute bees?) and almost anotherCarylin stayed all day and finished stitching down two sides of her bordersand Lyn started putting together her small blocks into the bigger blocks and adding the centre circleMeredithe x

    Lots of beauties in this post !
    How many pieces of fabric in a wheel for the Carousel quilt ? They are very small….

  5. I love them all, but I adore Carylin’s! Amazing! I rarely use grey in my quilts, but somehow you ladies make greys so beautiful! Thanks for the inspiration.

    All those Carousal blocks are wonderful. It really has become a very popular pattern.

  7. Wow Meredithe, always such an interesting show and tell, with lovely photos. I love all those carousel blocks. I have no idea how all those curves are pieced. Thanks again!
