Last for February

My flaunt for this week is the Summer Challenge for Bay Quilters here in Melbourne.  In October we were asked to chose a card from a pack I got the 3 of clubs.  While In Launceston on our holiday I took photos of a selection of club buildings around Launceston. I chose these 3 Country Club Casino, The Northern Club and the Masonic Club.  The organiser of the challenge set the size of A3 and the border size.  The quilt was revealed at the February meeting of Bayside Quilters and here it is.

Hexagon bag flaunt

I have finished the hexagon bag I started making back in October.  The bag had to be ready for show and tell tomorrow at Bayside Quilters.  The only machine sewing  it needed was the pockets in the lining then making the handle finally stitching front and lining together.
I will put a press stud closure on it when I find them.  I also finished the Summer Holiday challenge 'Hit the Deck' for Bayside Quilters will post that next week as other members may see it before all the challenges are revealed tomorrow.

Ugly Fabric Challenge

My flaunt this week is a wall hanging for a challenge.  At the last meeting  for 2009 of my Monday group NQR Craft Group Helen the ideas person gave everyone a fat quarter of what she considered an ugly fabric.  The fabric was from the safari range mottled browns on a cream background reminded me of snake skin.
This is what I came up with I have used pencils to colour in some of the turtles back used machine button hole to attach snake and turtle and free hand machine quilted.  This was due to be revealed on Monday 1st unfortunately I couldn't get to the meeting so will reveal it this Monday.  This quilt is 18 1/2" square.
