Tuesday's Show and Tell

Tuesday was sampler block day. Here are some of the "Old Maid's Puzzle" blocks that we made. They make such an interesting pattern when they're rotated in groups of four.

This is Janette's "Sunday Best" dress from a class earlier this term. We loved the effect of having the stripes of dots horizontally in the bodice and vertically in the skirt. If you look closely, there are really neat little purple pom poms dangling around where the bodice and skirt meet.

This is Effie's Carpenter's Wheel with its border on.

And Elaine's Carpenter's Wheel with a really cute chook print around the outside.

Nancy brought her "Carpenter's Wheel" in too....

This is Pam H's "Carpenter's Wheel"....she picked the colours from a piece of fabric with horses running on which is going to be the border.

This is Nancy's "Jellygon" quilt - all done by machine with 2.5" strips! All the fabrics are from fat quarters that she was given for her birthday.

This is Ruth's "Jellygon" quilt done like a traditional "Grandmother's Flower Garden".

Ruth also brought one of her tops from Judy Hooworth's "Quilts on the Double" class in September.
