Eye Candy for Quilters

Just a quick post....

These beautiful quilts were created by two very talented quilters, Margaret and Lisa, both are members of the Tuesday Pelican Patchwork and Quilting group.... Thanks, Margaret and Lisa for giving me permission to post these photos of your quilts in blogland for others to enjoy your lovely work.

Lisa's eye-caching, brightly coloured machine embroidered dragon jig saw quilt, appears to be floating on a starry, starry night sky. Terrific layout idea and perfect fabric selection and what fun blocks. This is Lisa's own placement and layout design.

Lisa also made the below "Dancing Batiks" quilt with – paper foundation templates, and pieces of Batik fabrics.  Bradley and Jody Niemeyer designed the layout and foundation pieces for "Dancing Batiks", Lisa has done a terrific job of colour placement. Foundation paper piecing is used when sewing the pieces of Batik fabric onto the foundation units. Paper piecing, curved piecing and traditional piecing skills are required to join each unit after the foundation piecing are completed.

Margaret chose to use the paper-piecing method to construct the Star quilt, she used pretty floral scraps of fabric from her scrap collection, (her grandson did the layout design), and paper-piecing ensured the stars had straight edges and accurate joins, especially at the centre of the stars. This was an awesome job of hand-piecing and hand-quilting.

Margaret also made the very pretty Sunbonnet Sue quilt below. Every little girl would love to own and cuddle into one of these cute adorable quilts.

When I first saw these quilt, I thought how awesome they all look! I hope you enjoy them as much as we did at the quilters group. Aren't they beautiful?

Happy quilting until next time
