Show and tell from CAG meeting.

Spent a lovely day with the ladies at our Castlemaine Applique group meeting.
Managed to snap a few pics of the show and tell, and have them here to share.
First up is the hexi's l was working on. Not sure where l am heading with these,
 and more than likely will end up as 2 separate quilts.
The pink and brown hexi's l bought pre-cut when on my trip to America, back in 2009,
so thought it time to do something with them, and the 2 on the black background are from  Betsy Chutchians Crossroads to Texas range.

This delightful centre from Aunty Greens coverlet met with much admiration.

Sue-Anne from Buddy and Me,  made the 3 1/2 hr trek to join us for the day,
and brought along her almost finished Dancing Dollies quilt.

Sue-Anne also had her finished Clam shell quilt, very pretty and soft.

Jan inspired us all with her applique centre.

This lady ( sorry,  missed her name) had a delightful version of the Ann Daggs quilt.

Laurel brought along this charming Xmas globe quilt.

Another inspiring pieced quilt. Fabulous collection of fabrics in this one.

This lady is making her version of the basket quilt.
Gotta love that tiny dresden plate on the border.
They are about 3"finished.

Michelle had this stunning feathered star quilt to share.

Dorothy had her finished version of the Aunty Green's coverlet.

And also a strip of the Susan McCords trailing vines quilt she is making.

Alison had the start of her quilt guilds raffle quilt,
a strippy using 5 rows of these trailing vines
 to be completed and raffled later in the year.

Well, that's all for today. l am off to my sewing room.
A day at home by myself, and hopefully no interruptions!!
Who knows what mischief l will get up to.

Thanks for visiting.

  7. Super super quilts. I love the quilts coming from Australia, you guys have a knack for keeping the tradition of medalion going and keeping them beautiful. Each and every one of them are wonderful in design, but must particularly use of colour and fabrics.
