One of the good things about going to a quilting class is the inspiration you get from seeing the completed quilts that other people bring in. At the Fat Quarters this week , Kim has been collecting quilts for the show at the Pins and Needles needlework and craft show at the Metro radio arena in Newcastle next week. This quilt made by Annette has everything in it, needle turn applique , embroidery, machine piecing, and finally this enormous quilt was machine quilted on her little Bernina Machine.

Margaret brought one of her quilts , hand quilted to Sandy Lush designs. This is a poor picture and doesn't do it justice.
But here you can see the fine detail of her hand quilting in one of the blocks.

Annette had more - this time a quilt top she had just completed in foundation piecing . This is moonlight stars .
And again a close up of one of the blocks.

Irene has nearly finished this beautiful fairyland quilt from a pattern by Natalie Lymer at Cinderberry stitches. When it is finished I will show you a better picture. The applique is fabulous and the icecream clolours of the fabrics make it a little girls dream.
A snails trail - another contribution by Annette - busy girl- is machine pieced and quilted.
And finally I have finished my black and white scrappy Linus quilt. Yesterday was bright and sunny so it was good to get out into the garden to take a picture in the sunshine.

Hope you are inspired too.

Happy Quilting xx
