Quilting on the treadle at the Quilt Exhibition

I demonstrated  Free Motion Quilting on a treadle sewing machine for three days of Rose City Quilters exhibition.  I quilted seven and half cushion front top pieces. And had a workout as well, just joking!!!!!

 A closeup of the free motion quilting on the treadle.
 Three of the pieces I did on the weekend!!
Rose City Quilters had a fabric house challenge, I got carried away and made three!  I made a Mouse house, A smurf house and a fairy house. The judging was by the public voting,made by a gold coin vote.  I think there must have been a lot of children voting because my smurf house won!! !  How embarrassing as the other houses were SOOOOO beautiful with so much work put into them.
The ginger bread house got second it is beautiful it was made by Jill Hogg and my tree stump house was third!!

My RCQ Quilt Exhibition Challenges

Here are my three challenges I did for the Rose City Quilters celebration exhibition the theme is "30 years"
I think it will be OK to post these now as they are hung with names on at the quilt exhibition now!!!!
I popped in to the exhibition as it was being hung to take a treadle sewing machine in as I am going to demonstrate free motion quilting at the show for the 3 days it is on.  I will have some quilt sandwiches made up so if there is anyone wanting to have a go they can!!!!!!
