September Show & Share

There were lots of great contributions for Show & Share this month - check out what our members have been up to. There also seemed to be an unofficial theme of "Dress to Match Your Quilt"... spot the coordinated quilters!

This quilt was made by Lisa for her son, and it won a first prize ribbon at the Saanich fair!
Rosalie has been in the pink, first with this one made of squares....
...and this one of triangles.
Nicole made this wonky star quilt in five days, and finished the binding on the day of our meeting!

Notice the excellent cardigan/quilt binding coordination.
Sharon's vibrant diamond patterned quilt is called Boomerang.
Esther spent the summer making bags and wallets, some with yard sale fabric.

Looks like there may be some wallet/shirt coordination as well...
Sarah made cats! And cats with glasses!
 Jo made this quilt from Block Lotto winnings - remember the heart blocks? She's donating this to the Victoria Hospital Foundation.
Jo's lucky sister-in-law is getting this one... Jo based it on our June Block Lotto block.
And a third quilt by Jo - this one is based on the puzzle piece block we did in June, 2017.
Anne and her sister Crin made this charity quilt with their friend Mary, and Anne quilted it.

Expert quilter/quilt coordination by Crin!
 Barbara’s embroidery guild had a challenge to create something with this blue fabric, and she made a modern mini quilt.
 Barbara also made this one with sashiko stitching... and she made that ginkgo leaf print fabric herself!
 Kathleen made this striking throw for her sister's new apartment.
 Mary called this quilt Off To The Fair, then it went off to the Saanich fair and won a first place ribbon!
Last month Netta showed us a pink baby quilt.... the baby has now arrived and it's a boy, so she whipped up another one in blue.

We can't see her shirt, but blue jeans... we'll call that another match!


  1. Psst, it's Barbara, not Margaret with the embroidery guild blue fabric and sashiko/ginko mini quilts.
