Gillian’s Show and Tell pieces

At St Mark’s Quilters we’re always interested in seeing the other projects everyone’s working on when they’re not making beautiful Blankets of Love. Last week Gillian brought along a cute little embroidered wall-hanging she made for her granddaughter, Brooke.

To me, the most intriguing part was seeing the pigtails, bunches, plaits and curly hair in 3 dimension on those figures.

However it was this finished piece that had us all enthralled.

Here it is open, showing the bedroom.

The lounge room.

The bathroom, complete with mirror. Look at those tiny bead “bubbles” floating over the bath.

The kitchen, complete with clock on the wall.

This little doll’s house appealed to the “little girl” in all of us.

That little house is very cute! I'm wondering if it a pattern by a NZ quilter.

Wow - the doll house is truly amazing. But since I'm an embroidery lover the small quilt really caught my eye. You've got some really talented quilters! blessings, marlene
