Quilters' Circle - 14th June, 2010

Because the Neighbourhood House was closed for the Queen's Birthday public holiday, Joy invited us to meet at her home. We enjoyed a lovely afternoon tea, served on a cloth Joy's grandmother made her for her 21st birthday.

Joy also provided us with a pile of patchwork magazines to look through, so between the magazines and the refreshments, not a lot of sewing was done.

A couple more of us have made our blocks for the raffle quilt.

Marie bought along this tiny cushion to show us. It goes with the doll quilt we saw at her place on ANZAC day.

Marie's new project involves appliquéd birds, leaves and flowers formed of simple shapes. This shot shows how it will go together:

During our time together Marie began to appliqué one of the birds. The design is called Holiday Morning, by Kathy Doughty, from the book Material Obsession, by Kathy Doughty and Sarah Fielke.

Marilyn brought along her finished cushion, complete with a very professional-looking zip in the back of the cover.

It looks lovely, and should be greatly appreciated by the person who is about to receive it as a house-warming gift.

Vireya has finished the last block of her Red Delicious quilt.

She is hoping to have the top assembled by our next meeting.

Our next meeting will be at 1:00pm on 28th June, at the Neighbourhood House. See you then!

  1. Sorry I didn't make it. Such a lot of lovely work. Vireya--congratulations on finishing that last block. Those cherries look good enough to eat! Can't wait to see it all together.
