November's Program & Show and Tell

Tonight's program was a presentation by Cecile Grant on repairing antique quilts. Cecile's great sense of humor accompanied by examples of her repairs made for an informative and entertaining presentation.
Cecile's presentation was followed by Show & Tell. So much gorgeous work - kudos to all of tonight's presenters and thanks for sharing.

A yoyo quilt with a new backing


A 50 year old quilt block - repaired and framed



June G. coloured bars pinwheels - love the colours

Gwenda M.s Halloween quilts - pumpkins and hats.  Love the themed quilting.





Line F.'s 1/2 square triangle quilt - love the 3D effect



The following 3 quilts were made by the very talented Christine B.  Christine mentioned she loves applique and it shows on the following gorgeous quilt.


Boho Heart - happy colours chosen to brighten its lockdown construction


Scrappy Stars - Christine mentioned the stars do not touch the edge so points are much easier


Annette R.'s Christmas quilt. The pattern is Stairs to the Stars and features country fabrics. Nice job, Annette.


Cecile G.'s scrappy Triple Irish Chain. So many little blocks to make such a beautiful quilt



Bertha M. always makes big quilts and she's done it again. The pattern if Sunny Lanes and the fabric is batiks - love it.


 

Thanks to all for bringing their quilts to show.  Happy sewing and see you next month.

 A Great Program and Lots of Show & Tell

For those who missed our last meeting, you missed a great program.  A past member, Jennifer Speedy, shared a selection of her "little projects".  Jennifer loves applique and embellishments and it showed in her collection.  Many thanks to Jennifer for bringing us such a large selection of her artistic works - so creative. The following photos show just a few of the projects.  






The wall hanging below is appliqued and has so many cute details including lace curtains, plants and flowers



Off to grandmother's house - Jennifer created this wall hanging from a photo of her grandmother's house in the UK.



And now on to our show & tell for October.  All these quilts are just beautiful and show such creativity and talent.  Hats off to all our members!


This first one is Peggy H.'s 10 year old granddaughter's first quilt. What a talented  young lady - just like her grandmother.



Joyce N.'s artistic talents have shone again in this beautiful heron



Janet S. has summer blooms everywhere over the next two quilts.  Janet's appliques are always so pretty.



Dorothy J. has gone off to sea - love how the different blues give the water motion.



June G.'s Autumn on the Mountains - a gorgeous way to use scraps


What a eye catcher - Dancing Dresden by Elaine M.  Both front and back




Elaine also created this lovely from batiks



Angela W.'s frightfully cute ghost quilt



Elaine S.'s Tortilla Quilt is being donated to the Ferguson Foundation fund raiser.  It was quilted by Andrea R..  Hope this beauty raises lots of money!





Bear Paws by Donna C.  An awesome gift for her sister-in-law



Charline W.'s did a lovely job on this quilt.  Her flying geese really make the panel pop





Betty V.'s pretty pastels - so summery.




Crumb quilts are so much fun.  Dora M. had the patience to do this blue beauty.



Bertha M. has done it again - another "big" quilt" and it's so pretty.



Cecile G. made this memory quilt for a friend from handkerchiefs, pillow cases, etc.  The owner must be so pleased with the result.



Joyce N. has unleashed her artistic talents with this eye catching wall hanging.  Although Joyce admits she does not like applique, she certainly has mastered the technique.





Cecile G. scrappy log cabin and pinwheels - so striking!



Cecile G. rescued this little baby quilt from a yard sale.  The appliqued animals are so sweet.  



Cecile isn't done yet - she created a beautiful Stack N Whack and has offered to run the course again if our members are interested.



Cecile also designed the following three quilt tops featuring poppies.  She intends to donate these to the Veterans' Hospital once completed.
