August in lockdown

Melbourne continues to be in the grip of the Coronavirus pandemic, keeping everyone to their own homes. Waverley members are missing our regular get togethers where we get to see each other’s projects and are stimulated to try all sorts of new patterns and techniques.

Fortunately some lovely people have sent in their photos of recent work, both complete or as WIPs (work in progress). Please enjoy viewing these and remember to send in your own pictures as a small substitute for what is currently missing in our lives. Check your newsletter for details.

A pattern, template and fabric kit bought by Robyn on the bus trip to Torquay last year has resulted in this stylish cushion.

Another shopping expedition, this time to Amsterdam in 2014. Jenny bought the chintz’s with a plan to hand piece something. But they proved to be too tightly woven so instead she has made this stunning quilt top by machine.

Peggy keeps her scraps organised by size. She used her 2″ strips to make this windmill block found in this strip piecing tutorial.

After using very bright fabrics in recent projects Christine is using reproduction fabrics again. She is enjoying the challenge of using these more subtle patterns and doing lots of fussy cutting. The pattern is Leonie Bateman’s ‘Evandale’ with changes made by Christine to create ‘Flowerdale’.

A cheery pieced heart quilt made by Trudy to cheer up an overseas cousin.

Ann has a new granddaughter and she has not yet been able to give her this very cute animal quilt which is so big it will last for a very long time.

Rhondda was asked by her Daughter-in-law to make these quilts. There are going to be some very happy little people when they get delivered.
