Stacks more quilts!

Hello again! Thanks for saying with me. Now, where was I? Oh yes, showing off the fabulous work by our St Mark's Quilters at our May workshop.

Barb brought along two great kindy quilts...



Michaela knows you can't go wrong with sock monkeys.
Gillian showed us how easy it can be to make a quilt with lots of kid-appeal from a printed panel. Both the jungle quilt (above) and the farmyard quilt (below) are hers.


And finally, a wonderful team effort by Di B and Margaret. If you look closely you will see Di's signature orange peel quilting in those corner squares.


As usual, there was stacks of sweet goodness to fuel our efforts, this time a delicious lemon-iced bundt cake and a chocolate chip fruit slice cooked by Perdita. Yum!

 What bounty!


Stacks of quilts!


Over the course of the day, fifteen St Mark's Quilters had a fun, productive time at our May workshop (yes, it IS that long since I blogged!), finishing a bumper pile of colorful quilts for RPA Hospital's Newborn Intensive Care Unit and 'The Marcia' kindly for autistic children.


Barb and Gail caught the pieced hearts bug after I introduced them to the True Love mini quilt pattern by Megan Pitz in February, and here are their finished Blankets of Love.

And Liz won't be far behind once she's quilted this blue and white beauty.


Teamwork by Susie W and Di B resulted in this lovely Blanket of Love.


I wanted to smuggle this kindy quilt home in my bag. Di B used one of my very favourite Kaffe Fassett fabrics, combined with gorgeous brights!

 And this one too! Di B finally cut into her precious Emma Jean Jansen Linen Cupboard fabrics, and the result is totally amazing.


Chester gave it his seal of approval.

Margaret used a panel to make this quick and clever quilt, perfect for a little boy who loves big machines.


And Di C had fun with frogs for this one.

In fact, there were so many finished quilts to photograph that I needed to split this post. See you on the other side!
