Our theme for February was "Summer"
Frances H called her wall - hanging "Summertime" and was made for a challenge in 2015 by using a supplied block which was cut up to make the legs of the chair. This is a chair that she uses regularly to sit on in the garden and read a book, her favourite summertime activity.
Colleen O'N, attended a class at Cottage Flair a few years ago on lead-lighting quilting.
Jenny R, completed this wall-hanging in 2003. It was a workshop with Kirsten Duncan started in 2002.
"Beach Belles" by Jenny R. Pattern was by Amy Bradley and was bought while on holiday. She completed it in 2014. It is hand quilted and embellished with buttons and beads.
"Denise & I & Wild Apple Trees" Made by Maureen L, and it brings back memories of a Summer Holiday around the Southern Lakes and Waitaki Valley with her friend.
On with the Show n Tell.
This very pretty quilt is by Judith A. It was a mystery challenge, quilt as you go method and was lots of fun to make.
Another by Judith A. This is called "Scattered Geese" and she made it to use up scraps. Judith had it quilted by Paula Shailer @Rabbits Patch Quilting.
And another by Judith. This is called "Squares in Squares" and was 3 years in the making and it is one finally for their bed! Another quilted by Paula Shailer.
A wall-hanging by Carolyn. She attended a Gloria Loughman class at symposium and this is one of four teaching pieces in her book. Carolyn used it to practice sewing on her new machine.
Heather McL. has called this "I grew up to be a change mat". She started off with the yellow fabric and worked out a patch to use up the small amount of fabric she had but it was NOT ENOUGH for a cot quilt so it is backed with shower proof fabric and became a change mat!
We all had a laugh when she showed us the Perfect Quilting clock she bought in Fiji.
"Ladies" by Rosie N. Rosie bought the kit in Melbourne just because she liked it.
Last years challenge quilt from Aimee's Quilting, Palmerston North. These are by Rosie and Sonia.

This will be called "Tatam's Tasje" and is for Tatam's 8th birthday and will have other NZ gifts inside to reflect the wonderful time Henny Burger has had in New Zealand.
Another by Henny, who was a visitor to our meeting, They are two separate wall-hangings and are called "Summer in New Zealand". She loved the batik fabrics and loved the landscapes in NZ. These are her 1st quilts. Well done Henny.
