Show and Tell from our Castlemaine Applique Group

This week we took delivery of an assortment of great fabrics from Moda including these handy stash builders from Blue Barn Prints and Grand Traverse Bay ~ all $26.50 a metre.

PLUS, we restocked the VERY popular "Longfellow "script print from Windham Fabrics seen here in light mottled  cream and a light tan (centre 2 fabrics). 
Brilliant backgrounds and a cute novelty vintage sewing print 
As promised, here is some of the beautiful work we saw at Show &Tell at our last meeting of the Castlemaine Applique Group. There's always so much talent and enthusiasm in the room, and even some not in the room! Our Show & Tell kicked off with this beauty Helen Hayes sent along with friends even though she couldn't get to the meeting herself!  Wow, thanks Helen for showing us this gorgeous quilt - started in a class with Di Ford-Hall at Primarily Patchwork years ago and just recently finished.  We love Helen's use of colour!

Sue made this scaled down version of Di Ford-Hall's Maggie Grace's Garden for a baby on the way - pity the baby arrived and is a boy - so now she's making another identical quilt in navy red, and cream!
Rose is a"Finisher" - and did a beautiful job on what was a UFO.
When Robyn celebrated a special birthday (yep, 21) her lovely sewing group
made her this stunning quilt!
Jenni brought along this gorgeous applique quilt to share - isn't it fantastic!

Jocelyn is powering ahead with her Celebrating Mary Brown at an astonishing pace! 
Jan brought along a very sweet little 1930s baby quilt

Here's Barb's Blessing Quilt made in class with Robyn Falloon - beautiful colours Barb!

Our best buddy Sam has been disgracing himself this week~  you've heard of skip diving...well Sammy's been Bin-Diving.  The medicine he is on at the moment makes him extra hungry and he's been face-planting every rubbish bin in sight here at the shop in the hope of finding a little extra morsel of food.  Lunch time at Threadbear has become a precarious balancing act as we guard our sandwich from the marauding hound!  Have a great weekend everyone!
Butter would not melt in his mouth!  He'd already have swallowed it!
