Huge Appliqué Quilt

Hand appliqué and pieced, this beautiful quilt was made by Jenny as a present for a friend's granddaughter for her 21st birthday.

Jenny worked solidly on this quilt, sometimes over ten hours a day, starting it in October 2011, and finishing it in May this year, which I think is a tremendous effort.

I echo quilted around the appliqué, and I really like the effect in the centre of the quilt.  In the appliqué border I quilted some leaves in the larger areas as well to create some interest.  The cream border was just perfect for feathers.

Green and White Quilt

Stylish and elegant come to my mind when I look at this quilt made by Carole. 

 I love the effect the different sized pebbles have made on this quilt.

Quilt Teacher

My seven year old niece has been working on her first quilt with me.  She chose all the fabrics from my stash, sewed every single seam, and quilted it herself on my long arm machine.  I am so proud of her.

She is coming for another visit this weekend to finish it - only the binding to go.

Pretty Embroidery

Another of Janet Sansom’s embroidery quilts.   Very pretty – a little girl would love this quilt.

Great detail in Janet’s embroidery designs, and cute bugs.

Stars and Feathers

This quilt was made by Chris Serong.  She will be teaching it at Goldfield Quilters in Castlemaine this November.

There was a lot of background in this quilt. The centre of the star is a circle, and I wanted to emphasise this circular aspect.  

I have linked to Esther’s Blog for her WOW = WIPs On Wednesdays.
