Loads of quilts - Part 2!

As per my previous post, there were many lovely quilts in our Territory Quilts Exhibition, so I thought I would show the rest of the quilts from the ladies in my friendship group "The Bay Babes", and a few extras that caught my eye.

Introducing Lillian.... "Marvellous Day for Dancing" is Lillian's original design, using hand dyed red fabrics.

Det Nua Fortress - pattern by Esterita Austen is the bottom quilt in the photo below....

Introducing Alison ..... who had so much spare time she made One Fish, Two Fish (72.5 x 59cm) (top quilt in photo above) as a part of Helen Godden work shop, and then made a miniature ( 31.5 x 22.5 cm) below ...

This is one of my favourites from Alison....Morning Glorified... she bought the blocks in Pine Lake Mountain, a small town at the entrance to the Yosemite Nation Park, California in 1996. The blocks were made in 1951. 

Doesn't it look great with all this perl thread quilting.....

Kimberly Camping, another lovely piece from Alison with hand dyed silks....

and loads of perl thread stitching and beading.

Memories of Crete - Highly Commended Art Quilt

We are nearly done now....check out the next  quilts that  caught my eye, firstly Jane Price's Hexagon  Garden (208 x 188cm), quite large and very attractive with loads of Kaffe Fassett fabrics

Jane had her quilt commercially quilted Denyse Bold of "Bold Quilting" and the colourful variegated thread has come up a treat on the black.

This quilt was inspired by photos of the red and white quilt exhibition "Infinite Variety". The shades of red come up beautifully in this photo, in the centre of the squares were lovely red work embroidery motifs. This is a group quilt by The Piecemakers from Alice Springs (244 x 183 cm).

Last, but certainly not least, is this lovely quilt by Elizabeth McCallum of Alice Springs. This quilt "My Roses in Broderie Perse" (260 x 230cm) won a Highly Commended in Professional Traditional quilts section.

Beautiful machine quilting...

Lovely machine applique...
