Quilters' Circle - 23rd May, 2011

It was a bit cool and very wet outside, so it was a good day to be inside quilting with friends. Four of us braved the conditions, but we missed Joy and Jenny. We hope you are both well and that we will see you next time!

Marie has started binding the wall-hanging strips we have seen in progress over the last couple of meetings, and brought along a couple of them to show us:
The black sets them off really nicely, doesn't it?

Today Marie continued quilting her autumn leaves miniature quilt:

Carol has already pieced together a lot of the squares she started cutting out at our last meeting, and the quilt is looking very cute and cuddly:
This photo doesn't do the colours justice. The pretty lemon yellow seems to have been turned dull beige by the camera. Carol has included some very cute appliqué blocks among the squares. Here are a couple of close-ups which will make you smile:

There is one last appliqué block to do, and Carol wanted to do something green. It was amazing how many green critters popped out at us as we browsed through a couple of magazines Marie had brought along, so Carol ended up with lots of ideas for her last block.

Glennys is kindly binding two quilts made by a friend. She finished one, and started the second one today.

Vireya did a bit more of her current paper-piecing project, but no photo, sorry.

Lastly, Carol showed us this beautiful heart she has embellished with embroidery and beads:
So lovely!

May is a month with five Mondays, so our next meeting is only a week away, on the 30th May.  See you then!
