Quilters' Circle - 12th July, 2010

It's the second Monday in July, so the Quilters' Circle met at the neighbourhood house. We were lucky because today is Joanne's birthday. Leigh had baked her a cake, and they kindly delayed eating it until the quilters and knitters were there to help.

Joanne received some lovely gifts, including this scarf (sorry the photo is out of focus) made of many tiny yo-yos stitched together. Guess how many? Joy counted, and there are 500.

Happy birthday, Joanne! Thanks for sharing your cake with us.

Everyone's been very busy since our last meeting. Here's what they've been doing.

Vireya has finished the top of her Red Delicious quilt:

Joy has been adding lots of 3-dimensional elements to her blue Baltimore Album quilt:

Marie has made lots of squares in 1930s fabrics:

Marilyn did some shopping while she was travelling:

It was great to catch up with everyone again.

Today Glennys came along for the first time. She sewed down the binding on this quick quilt she has made for her granddaughter. Look at the cute fabrics she has used:

Welcome, Glennys!

Heather came to show us this angel quilt her mother won in a raffle to support Banksia Palliative Care.

We all admired the work that had gone into it.

In between all that we talked, sewed (a little), and browsed some books and magazines. It was a lovely afternoon.

Some of us will be back at Sussex on Sunday 18th July to baste the house raffle quilt seen in our previous post. If you can join us from 10:00am, you would be very welcome!
