Last night Taupo Quiltmakers gathered for Midnight Madness.
Stitching is happening:
Fiona was my stunt sewer, this was the first block made:
Bree has just joined our club, bought a brand spanking new Bernette and this will be her first quilt! Well done Bree!
Dot is very busy with a Batik Jelly roll and Yellow centres. This is going to be a stunner:
Christine decided on a Christmas theme:
Melody has beige/golden centres and zingy colours happening:
Julie is using classic White and Blue. Always so fresh looking. Julie says this is so not her but it’s very me – if she doesn’t like it I’d be happy to give it a home!
We had eight ladies stitching (sorry I didn’t catch photos of all the blocks) and two angels helping.
Here are the two sample I took along:
Peggy made this one. It’s the one with the corrugated iron stitching – so appropriate for a NZ quilt don’t you think?
Here’s mine. I made this whole quilt from my stash. The solid colours for the stars are fabrics I have had for about 20 years!! Back when I was having my Amish phase.. Some of them are polished cottons and some I think may have a bit of Polyester in them. The strips all came from my strip bin. Hardly made a dent in that!! Looks like I have a few string quilts ahead of me!
Look what’s on the back – remember this opshop treasure?
Last but not least a cushion made out of a sample block:
The pattern is called “Solid Stars and Strings”. I found it on Mary’s website. Thank you Mary we all had a great time stitching your pattern.
Thanks for popping by.
