Irene's quilts are incredible - I am sure we all learned a lot from her, ans as far as how she covers any mistakes - well, Irene, you are a woman after my own heart!
I will let her quilts speak for themselves - I would run of out of superlatives, in any case (and that is staying something!)
This gem is a BOM called "Blooming Springtime" ( Even though I wrote blooming Spain-time! Must have been thinking about next year's holiday!!!)
Confetti Hexies - you knew they were coming didn't you?
And what else would you back "Confetti Hexies" with???
Thanks so much Irene for showing us all these wonderful quilts, which I should mention, are all hand appliqued.
Can you believe this is Dianne G.'s first stitchery? All the patterns have bees in them and the bright squares set then off beautifully. Great work Dianne and also thanks to Melody who got her started on stitcheries. Melody, by the way learned something new - hopefully we will see the finished product next time.
While I was looking for something else in my shed, I came across a shadow trapunto cushion, which will be finished any year soon. But wait, there's more - here I am knitting my latest dish cloth, and just to show that I do finish them i have included a few recently completed ones - one day I will progress to something exciting, such as face washers or scarves.
Aren't these simply stunning? Deidre is crocheting these beautiful African flower pattern. The colours are all magnificent as well. Pattern? Deidre? Please?
Irene must have been pleased to see two Scquilters working on her patterns. Jeanette, who did Irene's clam shell class and is now putting them all together - lovey batiks too.
Jennifer made this splendid bag - full of pockets and secret compartments. It is so pretty and practical as well. And please, have a close look at the magnificent quilting in the first picture too. Naturally, it won first prize at her quilt show too!
For our July get together - on Wednesday 6th of July - there will be a few of us missing - heading to Sydney for the annual Scquilters Retreat. This year we will be cruising from Sydney to Morton Island and back, so we may or may not get a blog next month - however I will be back on (off) deck for August to report on our shenanigans as usual.
Have a great month everyone, whether you are cruising enjoying Carrum Downs net month - have lots of fun.
