39 Photos of Wonderful, Inspiring and very Beautiful Show and Tell... Enjoy! I decided to put these quilts up Alphabetically from the bottom up!

 I started the Show and Tell... At last I've finished my 'Mick Aston'!*    Well maybe it could be a little longer in the body, this will teach me to make up a pattern as I go! 

*From the TV Show 'Time Team'.

 I'm knitting Remembrance Day Poppies for about 10 of my Family who fought in WW1.  See further down for more information.  It is very easy.
Cast on 120 stitches, knit 4 rows, decrease 3 at at time in next row, knit 4 rows, decrease 2 at a time in next row, knit 4 rows, decrease 2 at a time in next row and thread wool through stitches and pull to close the center up, sew side and sew on button, but there is a crochet pattern further down.

 Sue has finished a quilt she started many years ago, so beautiful.

 Check out the detail...

 ... Especially Sue's machine quilting.

 Sharon has gone bright and bold...

 ... and Beautiful!

 This is the hand work that we usually see Sharon working away on... I can't wait to see this finished quilt!

 Selina has a way with colours and fabrics, I love this 'Wonky' Star quilt, so fresh and pretty.

 Rita was very brave and asked our advice on how to border this quilt... when she finishes the blocks that is... it won't be as small as this!   Rita had a selection of fabrics to show us so we could choose... we unanimously thought a red peeper with a bright plain blue border... which didn't go down well because Rita has already spent this months allowance on fabric and will have to wait till next month to buy more of the Blue!   :-)   But she did agree with us.   Hey Rita1  It's only the 3rd of August, you must have been busy at some quilt shop!

 This quilt is for one of our Aussie Soldiers, Rita asked her contact to find a Soldier who drove these great big trucks so she could use this panel on his quilt... one was found.

 Another lovely quilt from Rita with the back below...

This is Meg, she is a relative of mine, Meg is my ????  Start again... This is my DD2, Gwilym's MIL.  What relation are we I wonder??  Anyway.... Meg...  is visiting from Brisbane, Meg quilts with Karen Barrett of Quilters Store making charity quilts from donated fabrics and she bought down three little beauties.

 Meg is learning to machine quilt, check out her feathers... just fantastic aren't they!

This happy looking panel will be loved by a small child...

 One of the labels used on these quilts... just lovely isn't it.

 Liz is holding up Lynne's pretty little drink coasters.

Here is a much better photo of Lucy's lovely quilt, I asked Lucy if she had a better photo, she did and sent it to me ... so I deleted the crook one I took.   

 I'm so sorry Lucy, I broke my camera this week so I took my iPad that I don't use to take photos with very often... and this beautiful quilt got diddled!  The colours are just too faded, this lovely quilt is bright and bold with hand appliqued flowers and hand quilting underway... I've written to Lucy hoping she has a better photo... so stay tuned!

 Liz is always up to the most interesting and amazing embroidery's ... and of course I've forgotten the  details of the above work!  My brain can only keep so much detail in it in one day... maybe I need a Secretary to make notes for me  :-)

 I do know this is Liz's Blue Gum Challenge for July... it being 'Curves'!  She's keeping on top of this Challenge... not like me who is in a real mess with my blocks.

 It was Irene's Birthday today!  Happy Birthday again Irene...  This little quilt is for a friends Grand Child... it's the 5th quilt she's made for her friends Grandchildren, now that's Friendship isn't it!

 This is Heather's WIP... it's an Esther Aliu Block of the Month.

 As usual Heather's handwork is amazingly neat and just beautiful.  This is going to be an wonderful quilt and I look forward to seeing it grow.

 Gillian with her most amazing crochet rug for her daughter.

 Can you believe this!!!!!  Emma is Tatting!  How pretty and beautiful is this work  Wow!  I love it but I can't see myself having the patience to actually have a go.

 Emma bought a couple of lovely quilts for Show and Tell...

 I'm fascinated by this one... I just love the simplicity of it.

 Christine showed us her Table Cloth... Wow!  That's some Tablecloth.

BTW... this is a first... Christine was on the phone most of the time she spent at the Blue Gum... and at the end of the day... she'd SOLD her home!!!!!!    Wow!  I don't think anyone can top this!  :-)

 Just some of the 27 SCQuilters who came to the Blue Gum for the Day.

 Becky had lots and lots of Show for us all today... a little quilt made from a pack of fabrics that had been in her stash for far too long.

 This is wonderful, a child's jacket made in one piece!  Bec had a pattern for an adult jacket made the same way.

 Another one of these wonderful Crochet Rugs... I am absolutely in love with these.   Looking closer at this rug I'm sure Bec has folded it in lines so it looks as though it really is Zig Zag.

 Last... but not least... A lovely frilly scarf all finished and looking stunning on Bec herself!

 I'm also in love with this Crochet Rug... This one was finished yesterday by Annie.

Here is a detail of Annie's Rug showing the way she put her squares together, instead of sewing them as she usually does she Crocheted them together... I like this better than sewing.

 Here are Annie's Remembrance Day Poppies, some are Crochet, some are knitted... Annie started me knitting them by sending me this site...  5,000 Remembrance Day Poppies.

Wellll.... at last we have made it to Ann-Maree.  Here is her version of Bonnie K Hunters - Easy Street!  Brilliant isn't it, this is the one of Bonnie's Mysteries that I didn't make, I was just too busy last Christmas... but I have the fabrics all chosen so stay tuned!!  :-)

Hi Pennie

I can see you gave us a clue because I can see Ruth wearing the stripes in the shot a bit further on! Lots of laughing there I see as well.
