Whoa!!!!! is all I can say
about this week....
I have been quilting up a
to say the least....
here is some of what I have been working
on...now I have only quilted these
quilts with my
Handi Quilter Avante Q18
which I must say I am in
love with :)
the following Quilts have been
pieced by some very talented ladies
here in Kingaroy Qld
this is Margie.R.of Kingaroy
The Quilt she is doing is a charity quilt
for the Koala Foundation here
it is being put up for Auction
and all funds are going to the foundation :)
the lucky owner of this quilt will
be very happy indeed :)
below is the close up of the
gum leave pattern
The following 4 quilts were all done
by Leanne. M of Nanango Qld ...
Leanne is new to the world of Patchwork and
quilting...but has already shown
that she has talent...she is self taught
but has some sewing experience....I adore
her colour choices and the simplicity of her
quilts...they look so effective :)
it is a pleasure to quilt for her
Close up of the pattern of the 2 Aqua and orange
Moda fabric called Flirt
here she has just used one Moda layer cake for
her 2 quilts...these are going to make
great gifts ...
next we move on to Leanne's 3rd quilt
which i might add ...
when she dropped it off for quilting
she was not very happy with the colours
as it is for someone else...
but to me and many others that have seen the quilt
they thought it was just
gorgeous...and she executed the
10 minute block nicely
not bad for a beginner quilter :)
a close up of the pattern we did on the
10 minute Block quilt
and now we move on to the final quilt
this one of all of them would
have to be my favorite....
That is if I had to choose
I just love the Blue and cream
she also wanted to have navy blue
cotton and backing too...
as you can see below it
is just gorgeous
this is the close up of the pattern Leanne Chose :)
it suited the quilt so well
the quilt below was a class that i was teaching
to some of the beginner patchworker's
this one we called orange passion
as you can see it has lost of orange
and it will be finished with rounded
corners and orange binding
it has a butterfly pattern all
and it was pieced by Janet.F
of Nanango Qld...
I just love the colours
and I can tell you that not many are
a fan of the Colour orange...but this
quilt made a few step out of their comfort Zone
and as a teacher i am happy when people
are looking out of the box :)
so by the time I have finished the post
I will have done 6 quilts in total for
the week and moving onto the
and next week is looking
very much the same....
with more quilts coming in daily...
I love my job and would not trade it for
anything in the world..
I am very thankful to have found my Bliss
that day I walk into that little fabric shop
called Milly's House of Craft
here in Kingaroy...
that is where I got my start in quilting...
sadly that little shop has now closed
but I am determind to keep the art of
Quilting and Crafting alive for the
younger and older generation alike :)
Happy Quilting <3 N
