 Warm Quilts for a Cold Day - November's Show & Tell

This month's show and tell had a wide range of colour from Christmas to Summer - hope you enjoy the many works of our talented members.


First up, is Marj. D.'s Window Pane Quilt.  Marj demonstrated this at the mini retreat.  What a wonderful way to set off a panel.



Agnes B.'s Lattice Quilt.  A great way to use up those scraps.



Agnes B.'s Appliqued Holly and Irish Chain Quilt.   The Irish Chain colours really set off the holly.



Estella M. made this seaside runner for her daughter - a lovely gift sure to be appreciated.


Debby S. explained this quilt is made up of antique blocks in the center and surrounded by more stars in blue made by Debby.  What a lovely way to  preserve the antique blocks.



June G. has been a busy lady with this lovely appliqued "Snow Showers" quilt that she quilted herself on her domestic machine.




Jennifer S.'s quilt demonstrates what we all need today.  So cute!



Bertha M. is known for her large quilts but she fooled us this time with her colour wash table runner.



But she didn't let us down, this beauty too is Bertha's quilt.


Fran M. did a windowpane quilt at the mini retreat as well but demonstrated that a panel isn't always needed - just some extra cute froggie fabric.



Cecile G.'s  beautiful Triple Irish Chain with snowballs.  What a great project to eat up some of those scraps.

Gloria P.'s "My Favorite Colour is Moda" block of the month quilt that she quilted herself.

October's Show & Tell Included Lots of Colour 

The trees of autumn weren't the only things full of colour this month-yesterday morning brought all kinds of beautiful, colourful projects by our members.


Brenda C. expanded her embroidery knowledge through a recent course and made this lovely runner and matching napkins complete with rings.  





Estella M. brought 3 quilts for our show today, all in autumn colours.  Beautiful work, Estella.





Constance H. also been a busy quilter.  Today she showed us three recent projects.  The first is her fall pumpkins table runner - so bright & happy.


The second is  a sweet baby quilt all in chickadees, pussywillows and eggs.



Constance's third quilt is "Hearts & Kisses"  This quilt and the one above were hand quilted in big stitches.



Kathy H. shared her "quilt" carrying bag that she created from a 
pattern named "Mondo". What a great bag with multiple uses.



Cecile G.'s gorgeous block of the month quilt called "Gossip in the Garden".  She pointed out the beautiful custom quilting by Joyce N.




One of June G.'s covid projects.  With all the applique and hand quilting, it certainly would pass the hours.  Lovely work, June.


Don C. has finished another lovely comfort quilt that is sure to be enjoyed by someone soon. Don pointed out that Ann had assisted him in the colour choices - teamwork pays off.




Well, Mary F. claimed this quilt was to be a scrap buster - maybe it didn't use as many scraps as she wanted but the chickens sure are cute. 



A lucky little girl is about to receive a gorgeous gift of an "I Spy" quilt from Myrna T.
The backing is flowers and fairies - so pretty





Charline W.'s "Twisted Ribbons".  The black really makes the colours pop.





This striking table topper named "Shadows" was sewn by Jo Ann G.  Love the dragon flies.




Joyce N. quilted this lovely donation to the Tiny Homes project. She didn't share the name of the person who made this top but she did remark that a lot of the fabrics included were the same as the ones in her stash. Also included below is the beautiful backing.





Jennifer S. created this summery garden of flowers.  Lots of Jennifer's favourite blue colour.



Cecile G. made 3 poppy quilts which she is donating to the Veterans' Hospital.  Three fellow quilters are quilting them and Cecile hopes to have them ready prior to November 11.  This one was quilted by Joyce N.





And this month's artistic  project was rope bowls taught by Marj D.

Our First and Last Meeting for the 2021-22 Year

Today, 26 members met for the first and last time this year - although it was only a social it was still awesome to get together to see familiar faces, swap quilting stories and eat delicious cookies and sweet bread.

We were greeted by Jennifer who encouraged us to help ourselves to a pile of quilting magazines for inspiration for future projects.  Most ladies wore hats as requested and completed ballots for a basket of goodies!  



The following two quilts were a group effort for donation to the Tiny Homes Project.  Someone is going to love these - great work gals!





And finally, a beautiful red work quilt made by Pauline L. as a gift for a family member - lucky girl!  The embroidery and hand quilting on this quilt are just gorgeous.




Hope to see you all in September and that everyone will bring a project for Show & Tell.

 A Couple More for Your Viewing Pleasure!

Jennifer S. has forwarded the following photos.  The first one is a quilt top for the Tiny Homes.  Jennifer made this one from orphan blocks that she has magically made into a handsome sampler quilt. 

The second photo is Jennifer's "blocks of the month" forwarded to us each month by Marj D.    Nice looking blocks - can't wait to see the finished product. Love your shamrock fabric!

WHOO HOO - MORE NEW STUFF!!!!

Barb E. and Kathy F. are helping to keep the next dry spell of submissions at bay.

Barb. E. submitted this first quilt earlier but included more info that this will be a Tiny Homes  donation.  The pattern is called "Arrowheads" and Barb used all scraps for this quilt.

The second is also a scrap buster for the Tiny Homes project.

Barb said of the third photo "Bookcase, is a panel I made and put on a duvet cover. Titles of books are pieces of selvedges. I am using my domestic machine to quilt them myself.  I can see a difference in my pile of scraps, finally."

Great Work, Barb!  The donation quilts are sure to be appreciated.





And Kathy F. also has projects to mark off her list of UFO's.  First up are Kathy's blocks of the month with January, February and March completed.


And finally today is Kathy's "Happy Villages" and it is so cute!!!  She's even included the pattern cover for anyone wanting more info.  








Awesome work, ladies.  I'm so happy you've forwarded them for posting.

New Stuff Two Days in a Row!

Jennifer S sent me the following today - Hexies - better yet - Free Hexies now made into beautiful quilts as gifts for some lucky people.

Jennifer said "The attached pictures are 3 quilt tops I have made from free hexies from Joyce Newman. I believe they were from different people as the seams were not the same and not the same as mine I discovered so I had to get creative!  The finished one is a comfort quilt and already has a home. The other two will either be a comfort quilt or a shelter quilt. A few snags along the way as I tried to piece them together and get them to lay flat."




Wonderful work, Jennifer.  Hopefully we will be able to meet again soon.
