Canberra Quilters Show and Tell

As you know last week I went to Canberra for four days and on one of those I was guest speaker for the Canberra Quilts.  After my little bit of the evening they had a "Show and Tell". 
 I thought I would share their lovely quilts with you but please excuse my photos.  I thought I had forgotten my camera and so used my iphone to take pics.  Guess what I found in the bottom of my bag when I got home!   Grrr

Now I am not going to try and pretend that I can remember all the names of the ladies who showed their works but this cute little quilt was made by Paulette who was one of the ladies that liaised with me.  
She has a new grand daughter who will be receiving this little quilt.

Now I think that is another of Paulette's quilts - just love those colours but I just wasn't quick enough to get a  good picture.

I tried again but still not good.

This super cute quilt is now on the makers little daughter's bed.  Lucky daughter!

She is even colour coordinated with it!

She is in the middle of finishing off UFOs and this table runner is another happy finish. 

And finally this cute little quilt!

I don't remember the whole story with this quilt and sadly i wasn't quick enough to get a picture of the back of this quilt which was pieced and equally vibrant but from what I can remember this was a joint effort and was given as a gift.  Isn't it just lovely!

And finally!  Here is the quilt that the Canberra Quilters presented me for Aussie Heroes. The photo just does not do it justice.  The colours just glow in real life.

Thank you ladies - I really enjoyed visiting you for the night.  Thank you for making me feel so welcome!

Till next time..................happy stitching!


  1. A lovely parade of quilts and how nice of the ladies to donate a quilt for Aussie Heros. Beautiful hourglass.

  2. All just great but the Aussie Hero one is super. Someone will be very happy to get that.

  3. Hourglass must be back in style or something....this is the third one I've seen tonight. (I'm leisurely surfing.) All of the quilts are beautiful, especially the Aussie Hero quilt. I think, though, that I would choose the lime green heart quilt. Those hearts are just perfect! So glad you enjoyed your stay in Canberra, Jan-Maree.

  4. Jan-Maree the quilts are just beautiful. The quilt that was presented to you for the Aussie Heros if going to truly make some happy. Sounds like you had a wonderful stay.

  5. thank you for sharing such a beautiful blog.......
