Staying Connected #65

Our online show and tell …

From Lorna … Here is a bargello quilt that I have made for my sister’s bed at her cottage which is in the Gulf Islands.

I wanted to highlight the water/wave theme so used these fabrics, of which there are 24.

Many of the fabrics are batiks on which you will find bubbles, star fish and shells.

I quilted it using a horizontal wave motion and did it in three pieces, then sewed them together as we learned in Melissa Marginet’s workshop.

It is a queen size quilt, and even with my new machine with the wider bed, quilting it in three sections was a challenge.

From Linda R … Finally a little house quilt for myself and some pull string bags.

From Esther … A teapot quilt, along with two placemats for Community Quilts.

From Diane … My 6 year old grandson designed this robot on my design wall while I was busy painting with the 3 year old. When I turned around, instead of a small pillow, there was a huge robot. He had also spied the beautiful minkee material that Elaine had given me awhile ago.

Diane’s Grow a Quilt …

Below is the back … not exciting. It’s that super soft, suede-like material.  Picked out by the 11-year-old granddaughter who now has it in Victoria.  

Jo-Anne showed us these figurines at the June Zoom luncheon and they were a lovely surprise for those of us who were unaware of this Royal Doulton collection with a needle arts theme.

From Linda F … Community Quilts has a few projects that might inspire you to dust off your sewing machine. Take a look at this lovely apricot and cream log cabin quilt. Everything you need is ready to go.

We just need you to help us out. Give me a call and we can talk about what you’d like to sew for Community Quilts.

Thank you to Lorna, Linda R, Esther, Diane, Jo-Anne and Linda F
