This is Jean's wallhanging.. She quilted it on her domestic machine - you should see the feathered borders! We've enjoyed watching Jean doing the blanket stitching by hand on Wednesdays (sometimes I think Jean comes up with projects especially to bring to sit and sew!!)
This is Larraine with a cushion she made from the Art To Heart book "Jingle All The Way"...
Elsa with her snowman wallhanging. Elsa says she really doesn't need to make any more Christmas projects - they are all over the house! But, stitching is so good for the soul!!

This is Jaqi's 14 fat quarter quilt!! She chose fabric from Nancy Halvorsen of Art To Heart's latest range Jingle All The Way.
Jaqi quilted it herself... taking only a few days to put it together, quilt it and bind it.
Wow! Thanks for your inspiring show and tell girls....

This is the Lotus panel.
These co-ordinates are also available.
So, what could you make? This is a sample whipped up overnight by Lorraine - featuring the Lotus panel surrounded by green borders, blossom borders and large peonies. A green binding will follow.
Please let us know if you would like a kit.

We are pleased to present more show and tell by Sharyn.
This is a quilt she made using a "swag" - that's a roll of fabrics cut at 5.5 in wide.
This simple arrangement showcases the fabrics. Delightful.
And, her is another Fat Quarter quilt by Sharyn - it's a quick baby quilt for a little girl (as if you couldn't tell).
Ooh, we love show and tell. What are you going to make next?

Made by Sharyn. Yes, this is her THIRD fat quarter quilt, and they all look very different!! These blocks are alternately bordered in black and pink to increase the size of the quilt to fit a Queen bed.
Thanks for sharing with us Sharyn and Stef.
Would you like to make a quilt like this? This is "Lorna's 12 Fat Quarter Quilt". Click the label on the sidebar to see more show and tell like these....
You can join us next term for a one day class to make this quilt. The new class list will go up soon.

This is an enormous Dresden Plate quilt she just finished. It is quite heavy - two people found it difficult to hold up properly for a photo.
Check out the Dresden Plate design quilted on the blank squares.
Update: Judy has been learning free-motion machine quilting in our UFO (UnFinished Objects) sessions.. (see the class list on the side bar for more information). Get out of her way! She is quilting up a STORM!!!
