September Show & Tell Photos

Here are some photos from the Show & Tell part of the meeting on September 24, 2012. Only quilts that were brought downstairs for display before the meeting were able to be photographed.

You may click any of the photos to see them larger.

Linda brought her large, 96", beige star quilt, which was hand quilted. It was given as a wedding present last weekend:


Elaine showed a brightly coloured lap quilt named "Chicks and Batik:"


Jane brought in her "Treasure Trove" lap quilt, which was designed to be made from 2 1/2" strips:


Sandie showed two lap quilts.  The first is "Playing Around," from a Fons & Porter pattern, and the second, "Spinning Flowers," is made from flannels:



Megan's flannel quilt "Bears in the Woods," is her own design, inspired by Kelly DuMaresq's Square in a Square presentation last year. It is destined for Quilts of Valour:


Louise showed a panel quilt, "Summer Nights and Northern Lights," with two co-ordinating pillow covers, that will be used at the cottage:



And finally, Susan brought in two quilts that she had finished on behalf of the son of our former member Ann Mitchell. The watercolour wall hanging just needed quilting, which Susan did herself. The blocks for the sampler quilt were all done, and Susan joined them and added the borders, then sent it out for long-arm quilting:



Thank very much to everyone who brought in their quilts!
