A small relaxed and quite industrious group at the Blue Gum.

We've had a request for our January 6 get together at the Blue Gum. Can we all bring in our Bonnie Hunter quilts and tops for show and tell please? I know mine will be tops!

 Heather, Lissa and Michelle

Maureen and Marilyn 


 Stephanie and Jean
 
Cath, Liz and Selina

 Lynne and Jill

Jean and Glynis

The Handwork:

Selina was working on her EPP project. I think it's la Passacaglia!

Cath was working on her EPP clamshells.

 Lynne was binding.

Jill was joining half square triangles together.

Maureen was hand quilting.

Stephanie was working on her pretty little jumper.

Jean was hand piecing.

Marilyn was working on some mini EPP hexagons.

Liz was working on a new stitchery.
Lissa was also working on a stitchery.

Michelle was working on this beautiful knitted shawl.
 Glynis was adding 'wings' to her EPP Seven Sisters Block.
Show and Tell:
Stephanie's beautiful hexagon project which would have been smaller if she hadn't been lucky enough to come across some more of the background fabric.

Jill's cute fox quilt.

Jean's wonderful 'Modern Mystery Quilt' by Rachelle Denneny. Jean found working with solids for the first time to be quite a challenge.




Four lovely quilts by Cath.


 This sweet little hand towel was brought in by Lissa today. She made it in 2nd class and retrieved it from the family home after she found it being used as a duster.

Christmas coasters by Lynne.

Gifts for Lynne's Granddaughters.

Cath who flew in and then had to fly out again as she had a very busy afternoon schedule. I didn't even get a chance to take a picture of her handwork before she was packing up and on her way. Sorry Cath I'll have to get a picture of your new hexagon projet next time!

Gena was hand quilting this beautiful ufo baby quilt.

 Heather is still working on her applique.

 Irene is completing the edging on her crochet.

Maureen (in green) is also hand quilting.

Show and Tell:


 Lynne created a quilt top and laundry bag for an Aussie Hero. Frangipannis and a beach theme were requested and Lynne is right on the mark!







Penny made these two beautiful little dresses. The workmanship was exceptional, with french seams and piping as well!
