Who Likes 1930's

Remember this quilt?  At the beginning of the year, our Saturday Sewing Group set a challenge - to complete a 1930's quilt by our Christmas break-up day.  

The Challenge was on.  There was lots of bantering and a few people (who shall remain nameless) showed their competitive side, some vocally, others silently.......... It did make for a fun year and lots of inspiration to get a top finished and the final Sow & Tell was a beauty.  Here follows some of the quilts.

Bridget's Clamshells

Christine's Baskets

Christine's 2nd quilt

Joy's Dresden Plates

Sheryl's 9 patch, please note that it is quilted and bound......

Jenny's 1st quilt

Jenny's 2nd quilt

Jenny's 3rd quilt

The next two are Christine's original 1930's quilts brought back from New York 

Of course no Christmas lunch is complete with lots of sweet treats!

My latest photo of Evie and,

Just had to share this one taken by a professional photographer when she was just 10 days old.  I can't wait to see all the others that were taken.

Keep cool everyone, we are in for a heat wave and are bunkering down with four days over 40oC here this week!

Well no I'm not usually a fan of 1930's quilts but these are lovely. You have all done so well. Evie is so sweet.

Love all the different styles chased for the quilts.
Well done all of you.
What a beautiful little grand daughter you have. I bet you are still smiling.

Fabulous show and tell and all so different. You are all so prolific too and rose to the challenge admirably. I may have to go and dig out that charm pack now. Little Evie is the star attraction though. She is just beautiful. Great photo. Stay safe and cool in your heatwave.
