Quilters' Circle - 29th November, 2010

Today is our bonus fifth Monday in November, so the Quilters' Circle got together again at the House for the second-last time this year.

As it is only a week since our last meeting, most of us didn't have a lot of show-and-tell. However, Marie has completed the quilting on her Christmas wall-hanging, and today was sewing down the binding. Here's one corner all done:

Inspired by that corner block, Marie used some of her left-over Christmas fabrics to make these seasonal coasters:

We were happy to see Joy back with us today. She is still quilting her miniature mariner's compass quilt, using a tiny tiny needle (which looks huge here, but when it fell on the floor it was very difficult to find).

Vireya worked on her paper-piecing project, but had some trouble planning the sewing order to avoid having to fold cardboard when stitching together this shape:

Marilyn brought along her machine and chain-pieced some triangles:

Our next meeting will be the last for the year, on 13th December.  Mary from the knitting group suggested we all bring a plate next time for a special afternoon tea.  Good idea, Mary!  So, come and join us then for some stitching and snacking!
