Quilters' Circle - 22nd November, 2010

Here it is, the fourth Monday of November already. We missed Joy, who couldn't make it today. Hope you are feeling 100% again soon, Joy.

Marie brought along her finished baby ball to show us:
People couldn't resist picking it up and playing with it. 

Today Marie was tracing templates and cutting out pieces for a new project:
What will it be?  You'll have to wait and see. Sorry about the fluorescent light reflection - I didn't notice that until later.

Vireya brought along the finished apron that she was cutting out last time:
Although she did model it for us, no photo was taken of that, so this is on her dressform at home.

Today Vireya was working on a paper-piecing project.

Glennys worked on her Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy dolls. Here's the very huggable Ann all done:
Look at the brilliant fabric Glennys used for Ann's clothes. Did you know that Raggedy Ann was created in 1915, and Andy in 1920?  That makes them 90 and 95 years old!

Marilyn has added the border to her Bombers block from last time. She had done some quilting, but discovererd that her walking foot was a bit loose for part of it, resulting in stitches like this:

So today she unpicked that part, and re-quilted it:

Looking good!

While stitching, we browsed a few magazines, books and catalogues Marie brought along - and ate some of her bickies!  Thanks, Marie.

We also had a look at some information about a quilt competition for neighbourhood houses next year.  We'll give that a bit of thought between now and our next meeting.

Speaking of our next meeting, this month has 5 Mondays, so it is only one week until we are back again, on the 29th November.  See you again then!
