Show and Tell

This past week we have been shown several quilts which have been finished by the ladies who have taken classes at Berrima Patchwork this year and last year. It is always great to see the finished work.

Here is Sharon's Quilt - "Peaches" which is a class taught by Jennie Osborne featuring English paper piecing, needle turn applique and stitcheries.

This is Edith's New York Beauties Quilt which she has been working on this year. The class Edith took was with Chris Jurd - New York Beauties Quilt.

This is Nicole's quilt which is simply stunning. Nicole has been quilting for just over a year and took this class last year. The layout was designed by Nicole and we know that her children are having arguments as to who is getting this quilt. The class was with me (Tamsin) and is Patchwork Illusions.

Chris Jurd's Class - Noodle Box (Quilt as you go!)

Here is a picture of Chris Jurd's Noodle Box classes. This is a quilt as you go class which produced some stunning quilts. Dianne's Quilt on the right hand side features sashiko in each of the centres. This quilt looks great in all the different types of fabric that were used - so many different fabrics, different looks yet the same pattern. This class will be run again later this year.
