Quilters' Circle - 7th September, 2009

Today was the first September meeting of the Quilters' Circle. Happy Spring, everyone!

Marilyn has been doing the "Working with Triangles" class. Here's her work so far, beside the instructions:

The colours she has chosen work really well, don't they? She is contemplating making the block several times to turn into a lap quilt, which would be lovely, but there are a lot of flying geese to make yet to finish the first block.

Marie brought along this tessellated whirly-gig quilt top to show us:

Here's a close-up:

I'm assuming that the pattern is made of pieced squares, so it must take a lot of planning to have each of those whirly-gigs end up with four arms all of the same colour. I should have asked about that.

Joy worked on this appliqué project:

The full quilt consists of four long panels, each with a different design. The sashing and borders also include appliqué. It is a beautiful quilt, and the colours glow against the black background.

Vireya did more of the swirls from the Red Delicious quilt. Here you can possibly see the yellow line representing the edge of the shape to be appliquéd. This is the final panel of swirls getting under way, and by the end of our time together this swirl was finished.

Between now and our next meeting, just about everyone will have attended a wedding or an engagement party. I think that proves it is Spring. See you all in two weeks!


  1. Wow Marlilyn! I'm impressed. That's great work on the triangles.

  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I love the patterns you have created by quilting!
