November: Show and Tell

Veronika showed a tiny patchwork doll's quilt she made for her daughter.

This was the quilt Veronika submitted for the national "Links" exhibition. The quilt shows the links between Veronika and her grandmother, both of whom left their homes for different reasons. The quilt traces their journeys with lots of memories along the way.

Margaret shows a patchwork teacosy...if anyone has a pattern for similar Margaret would love to find it again!

This cupcake-themed quilt was made for Margaret's daughter's friend. Both girls share a love of baking and visiting each other's houses for baking sessions and tea! The back of the quilt is ideal for snuggling up as it's a soft fleecy blanket from Penney's put to good use!

This is one of Madeleine's cushions made from a wall-hanging that was 're-purposed'.

Madeleine also made this quilt which was ordered to include lots of red, orange and yellow.

Madeleine's next project was a wonderful quilt made with scraps of curtain fabric.

Joan showed a Christmas wall-hanging where the triangles act as pockets to hold your collection of Christmas cards.

Colette made this lovely Advent calendar where the characters are taken from the pockets and attached to the buttons on the Nativity scene in the countdown to Christmas.

Bernie showed this lovely Kimono quilt which made great use of her collection of Japanese fabrics. All the leftover scraps were used to create the centre panel.
