New Zealand Quilter Magazine

Here are two articles from the New Zealand Quilter which arrived today.

Cindy Needham was guest speaker at Rose City Quilters Tote and Gloat day in May this year.  I attended two of her classes which I really enjoyed.  I now need to find some time to do some quilting I learn't in her classes, Cindy is a very amazing lady.

The two wall hangings on the right are two of the challenges I made for the Tote and Gloat challenge,  first and second places in the advanced section.

Printing and stencilling! FUN!!!!!


I think I will have to do the blue one again! Can't wait to stitch these together.  My husband is disappointed that I didn't stencil Gene Pitney. 


Here is the beginning of a wall hanging, looking forward to make these up!!!!!
I am really having lots of fun printing the backgrounds then stencilling over the printed fabric, I have used my Gelli plate to do the printed piece.  You can then stencil before it is dry properly.  But on these I did the gold background printing on the play day I had with friends. I have made a pattern in the gold using a leaf stamp.

Kindy Quilt


The 4 year olds at Feilding Eden Kindergarten have been screen printing using their own drawings for a display later this week.  I got the job of piecing their work together and quilting it, it will then be a cover for a sofa in the Kindergarten.

Playing with our new Gelli plates

 Norma, Ann and myself had lots of fun with our new Gelli plates today!!!!!
Here are some of the prints I made! What a cool start can't wait to play again some time soon.

More painted, stencilled/screen printed Quilts!!!!!!!!!!



I am really getting into these painted quilts, the top one has been painted and printed with the help of a 5 year old little girl.  I am sure she enjoyed the process.



The green and blue one I used two colours to do the stencilling/screen printing!!!!!!
The pictures are done by using a combination of stencilling and screen printing if that makes any sense!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
