Exhibition Photos 2

 S's quilt was amazing and very well made and as she has a computerised quilting machine the quilting was faultless
 One of these was by the same lady the other by her Mum - they both have fabulous quilting machines and do quilting for other patchworkers.
 My photo may not be doing justice to the soft yummy colours of R's quilt.
I loved the colours in M's 30 Blue Moons.
 The pink squares certainly popped in this on .( I think it would have benefited from another row longways. )
 D's string quilt looked good finished. She has some of my strings in there. We all share when someone needs extra to finish something.
 My Lightning Strike looked a bit lost as it was small and hung too high.
 This jelly roll quilt was just that, diagonal placing of the jelly roll strips.
                             The fabrics were nice so she didn't cut them up.
 I haven't met the maker of  this beautiful quilt depicting her Dutch Ancestry. She  is a new member to our group, and attends on a Tuesday night when I don't.  . The workmanship and colours were very, very nice. The quilting had been done using the quilt as you go method, on each block. She didn't come to the show so I wasn't able to tell her How much I liked her quillt.

More quilt show pics, thank you! The Dutch one is lovely, I can see why you liked it.

I was so sad not to make your quilt show .... but I was at our Regional Embroidery Guild Retreat for the weekend..... the pictures are lovely.

S's quilt looks like a pixelated line doesn't it?

Yes, I see what you mean. What that photo doesn't show is that the grey fabric had a silver thread through it and so sparkled.( it was for sale for NZ$450 - didn't sell, but was well worth it...I considered it but as always thought you could make it yourself and have her quilt it for you )

Lovely exhibition, what a great variety in style. I'm becoming quite intrigued with string quilts, I love the scrappy look of them, and the fact that they are not complicated to make. Have a lovely week, hope you're not going to get too much of this storm that's on it's way.

Lovely to see the photos of the exhibition quilts - I have a great fondness for string quilts so the diamond strings is my favourite!

Wow -- it looks like you had some beautiful quilts at the show. I love your lightning strike -- it doesn't look like it was hung too high from here ;-P!
