Club Show and Tell Quilts.

We are trying hangers  along a railing to display the finished quilts that members bring along to club  for Show and Tell. The building we use for our Tauranga Patchwork and Quilters meetings is shared by other groups and has "stuff" all over the walls ( notices; fire extinguishers ;heaters etc. )  So far it beats the owners having to hold them up, which is what we have done in the past.
 Here are some quilts  from last Friday. 

2 Dr. Seuss ones.

 Monster by Valerie.
Hexagons hand pieced and hand quilted by Shirley.
 A kit quilt made by Neisha .

I have been laying out completed hexagons in rows and sewing then together.
 Note down the left side I was auditioning plain fabric for a border. It makes a huge difference. I now need to purchase a large amount , so I won't run out. I also need to decide how I will actually do the border. I have made a half hex template that seems promising.
 At last count I had 6 rows of 15 joined lengthwise.

Yes, your hexagon quilt is stunning - and all are quite lovely. I do like the birds by Neisha - well I love anything with birds, haha!
