So many stunning quilts, so much wonderful handwork and so much fun at the Pub this month! 29 Show and Tell Photos, 14 SCQuilter Photos of 28 SCQuitlers present and 28 Handwork Photos on this Blog right now! (no food photos today though)

 Jenn took today's Gold Star award for the most prolific Quilter of the Month!  Just look at all these quilts.  Quilt #1.
Quilt #2
 Close up of Quilt #2.
 Back of Quilt #2.
 Quilt #3.
 Quilt #4.

 And finally Quilt #5...

Wow! We are lucky to know 'Jenn the Quilting Wonder Woman'... two small children and able to leap tall buildings in a single bound...  oh dear I'm getting a bit carried away... I mean...  finish off 5 quilts in a single month!

Now it's Claire's turn with this Wonderful Star Quilt and below the back using up fabrics already used on the front.

 Then to top all that off... look what we have here, the most beautiful block made by Erica using Liberty fabrics!   This is going to be such a lovely quilt.

 Then we have another stunner... this time by Sarah!  Just look at those great big Hexagons!

 And Sarah isn't finished yet... This is another stunner for Sarah's daughter.

 And yes another lovely little quilt for Charity by Lyn... some child is going to love this quilt.

 And you are thinking things couldn't get any better when along comes Marilyn!  Another prolific quilter.  Isn't this one lovely.

 But wait... when you think it's all over along comes a beautiful story.  These are Stephanie's words, I had to email her to ask for the whole lovely story.

"I made these quilt tops from my box of scraps - simply just to sew the scraps and get rid of them.  They sat for a while and then Kerry said she was wanting blocks or unfinished tops  for her stall at the St Vincents Hospital.   And being one who doesn't enjoy the quilting decided I'd give them to her to finish off and hopefully sell - which unbeknownst to me they were all done by Marilyn." 

 Stephanie's pretty grey and pink quilt and the back...

 Then at last we get to see what Joy was working on, a fabulous quilt for her Grand Daughter, and the back below.

 But we're still not finished... Cath showed us these two beautiful quilts she's just finished quilting... there is gold in them thar quilts.  Lovely aren't they.

 But wait once again... there is another lovely story here as well... in Becky's own words.

" This is for my nephew Danny who has just become a paraplegic. The funny part of the story was that I was bagging Ruth out for crocheting with fluro and saying I didn't like granny square rugs not knowing what they were doing.  It was a secret project for Danny.  'Danny's Granny'. They are so crazy those wonderful women.  It will be perfect for  him while he is in rehab in the spinal unit."

 A lovely little table runner made by Emma.

 And check out this lovely Scarf made by Bernadette and given to Lissa... what a pretty and delicate pattern... I love it!

 Stephanie modeling Ruth's Cowl knitted on enormous needles, with loose ends finishing the whole thing off with a bit of pizzazz!   I love Stephanie's dress as well.

 Nothing stunning about this panel of mine, but my grandson Remy loves it  :-)

To finish off this fantastic Show and Tell today I give you one very proud Ros who hand dyed this lovely scarf all by herself!

Well done Ros and everybody else today... What a fantastic Show and Tell!

Lots of 'long time no see's' at the Pub today, lovely to see Sarah after a couple of years, Claire for only the second time this year and Brenda ditto and to meet Natasha!

 Annie and Beck.

 Marilyn and Stephanie.

 Heather and Marianne.

 Joy and Lyn W.
 Ros and Liz.
 Claire and Cath.
 Jenn and Natasha.
 Lissa and Maggie.
 Robyn and Lynne A.
 Emma and Sarah.
 Jill and Brenda.
 Erica and Ruth.
....   Finally... Pennie and Gillian  :-)

Busy hands making lots of lovely things to keep us warm or to decorate our homes.

 Lots and lots of Lissa's Pies in two different sizes... and omigollygosh... check out how neat the backs are!
  Ready and waiting... all neatly clipped together for making more Pies by Lissa.

 I'm hand stitching this panel for Grandchild #6,  now I need to find another one for Grandchild #7.

 Gillian's American friend sent these paint charts to help Gillian choose the fabrics needed for the next Bonnie K Hunter Mystery Quilt starting at the end of this month.

 Sarah working away on her wonderfully large Hexagon Quilt.

 These really sweet pigs and below the Cow and Farmer are being appliqued by Lyn W. for a friends coming baby.

 Robyn working away on her Giraffe's, these three have their tails but not their eyes yet so they can't see that they have tails, surely they must be able to feel they have tails!  :-)

 Lynne A. making pretty little flowers.

 I just love Maggie's hexagons ready and waiting to be sewn down.

 Wow!  Stunning block by Jenn.

 What a complicated block this one is Claire's, another Wow isn't it... who makes up these complicated but very Wow blocks I wonder, it will be a large Hexagon when finished.

 And another Wow!  A star block but just check out how detailed Natasha has been sorting her fabrics!
 Wow!  Wow!  Wow!

 Cath finishing some binding.

 Lovely little message being worked by Ros, can you read the last few words??

 Liz is coming along very nicely with this Masterpiece... it's looking absolutely stunning Liz!

 Frogs for Joy's grandchild.

 Another couple of these very beautiful blocks by Heather... this quilt is going to be stunning! I wonder how many blocks there will be!

 Marianne continuing on with the hand quilting of her beautiful quilt.

 Marilyn's little crochet hexagons coming along very nicely.
