Quilters' Circle - 11th July, 2011

It was cold outside, and only a small number of quilters braved the conditions to meet today. Inside, the air near the ceiling was hot but lower down it was a little cool. We discovered that the ceiling fans have a switch to change direction based on the season. Once we set this one to "winter" we had warm air circulating around the room:
In fact it got so warm that people started complaining.

Joy and Glennys worked on their appliqué projects, and Marie quilted, and in between we looked through these books and brochures:

Joy showed us this shopping bag her family bought for her in Thailand because they thought it looked like patchwork fabric:
Here's how it looks unzipped:
Very handy!

Glennys showed us this top she has pieced from the cute train fabrics she showed us back in May:

Joy's son saw a picture of a quilt in one of her magazines, then went home a drew up templates for her to make the design. Joy used his templates, and her hand-dyed fabrics, to make this top which looks just like the picture in the magazine:

Ching Ching popped in to say hello. She and Richard were at the house for something else, because they had forgotten that today was quilting day. So a little reminder for everyone, the meetings are on the 2nd, 4th, and 5th Monday of each month. That means that our next meeting is on 25th July, at 1:00pm.  See you then!
