Anyway to start off we an example of my favourite quilts – a Block of the Month Quilt. This one is from last year’s November BOM by Naomi. I just love these scrappy quilts.
Jeann made this cute little quilt
Check out the flowers she quilted! Very clever!
One of mine
Another one of mine – the front
and the back.
I cut this one out, Kiwi Karen pieced it and Carol quilted and bound it. It is for a RAAFie hence I added the RAAF motto “Per Ardua Ad Astra” or translated “Through Adversoty to the Stars”
Joy made this quilt top and Stephanie quilted and bound it.
Jenny and Gale posted off the next four including laundry bags which I will have to show you another time so we don’t give the game away!
And the back – don’t forget to send me a photo of the back if you have done something interesting.
Gee! This might make a good tutorial!
Another joint effort. Cut out by me, top and laundry bag sewn by Louise and quilted by Liz B.
Special thanks to Andrea for the backing. I was just waiting for the perfect quilt!
One of Lynn’s quilt tops, quilted by Stephanie
The Penrith Ladies did a great job sewing up a bunch of the laundry bags that I had cut out.
Rita M scored a signed flag for this one – signed by Russel Ebert!
The Sit and Sew Ladies from the Quilting Patch in Nowra got together to make this quilt – don’t you love the gumnuts – that is a first for AHQ!
Quite a number of wonderful newbies in this batch this week! Welcome aboard to all our new sewers! Thanks so much for getting involved.
If you are wondering why sometimes I don’t post laundry bag pics or even quilt pics when you send then to me that is because there is a good chance that those particular recipients could be watching the blog and I don’t want to spoil the surprise. I will try to remember to post the pics after the item has been received and you should always feel free to remind me.
Just a reminder
Don’t forget the ANZAC Day Laundry Bag
Challenge. Have you worked out what you will be doing?
Till next time…………..keep spreading the word.
