We are very fortunate in our Sunshine Linus community to have a number of ladies who spend many hours quilting the dozens of quilt tops that are donated each month. Dee, Kaye and Judie are three of our machine quilters.
Dee quilts up to twenty quilts a month! She brought along a selection of these quilts to show at our April meeting.
This teddy-panel quilt included a backing with hand stitched blocks. A close up of Dee’s magnificent quilting can be seen in the third photo.
Examples of other quilt tops quilted by Dee include this quilt made from an aeroplane panel, a scrappy squares quilt, a multi-coloured quilt with quarter-square triangles, one with pastel-coloured pinwheels, another quilt with light and dark linking blocks, an autumn-toned pieced quilt and this pieced green and pink quilt that creates a 3D effect in the central panel. Dee’s quilting can be seen clearly on the pink background of this last quilt.
Judie also loves to experiment and her beautiful designs are seen in the machine quilting that she does for Sunshine Linus. The two quilts below were made by Jan from Chinchilla. Judie’s complex quilting can be seen clearly on the back of the second quilt.
Thank you to our machine quilters!
Keep an eye out for the next post everyone. There is something new happening at our monthly meetings!
