Robyn Salmon’s intricately embroidered panel.
The Tin Can Bay Quilters meet every Tuesday from 9am to 12noon at the Community Hall, Amity Place, Tin Can Bay.
Some of the quilts that our ladies are working on at the moment are not only sewn but have a lot of hand embroidery as well. Our photo shows a typical example belonging to Robyn Salmon.
There are many different stitches on this panel but what is amazing, are the tiny colonial knots that have been added to complete the picture. They are on flowers, in trees, in window boxes on the house, and completely cover the centre circle. Sadly the photo doesn’t show the intricate work but rest assured it is beautiful.
The large embroidered hexagons shown in the other photo are the work of Sandra Bonell. Sandra has made a large number of these and hopes to make quite a few more which will make a beautiful quilt. Sandra’s work is prize-winning.
