Bags of Stuff revealed

Well, today was the big reveal at Toowoomba Quilters Art Quilt Group.  It was quite nerve wracking to begin with, but as proceedings went on we all became more comfortable.  It isn’t easy making a quilt for someone else we have discovered!!
Please visit the Toowoomba Quilters blog to see all of the wonderful quilts the ladies created from their bags of stuff.  It is amazingOpen-mouthed smile http://www.toowoombaquiltersclub.blogspot.com

Here is the quilt I made with my bag of stuff from Lyn L.  I loved the Philip Jacobs leaf prints, so based my quilt around them.  The top left corner is woven cheesecloth with a leaf hand embroidered.  Below that I couched down some fabric strips (ala Judy Martin) and these represent Autumn.  Thanks to Shirley for guiding me with colours and placements.  xxx

Linda Wrench (no blog)  received my bag of stuff and this is the gorgeous quilt I received from her today.
She has used some chenilling and has painstakingly quilted around those little Kaffe Fassett ‘trees’ in gold thread.  Very small cornelli quilting – I am in awe of it.  The whole piece is based around the orchard and the ‘fruit’ on the top right is made with little circles of fabric each stitched down with a sequin and bead.
Thank you Linda, I love it very much.
We had a lovely day at art quilting today!!

Your bag of stuff results is amazing. Love that hydrangea fabric . Also like those applique strips on the bottom left. I am sure the recipient will be thrilled with it.
