Quilters' Circle - 29th August, 2011

Today is the fifth Monday in August already. Where has the year gone?

Joy is still unwell and couldn't be with us today. Please get better soon, Joy! We are missing you.

Julie's collection of cute little hexagon flowers is growing. Here's one she made today:

Glennys showed us this quilt top she made for her daughter:
The quilt started at a workshop with Teresa Horsburgh, and is based on Teresa's design Floral Garden. Glennys's fabric choices make a quilt which is very different from the published pattern; in fact Glennys doubts Teresa would recognise it!  Will Glennys hand-quilt it?  She's thinking about it. Today she started appliquéing the 12th block of the My Blue Heaven quilt we have seen a few other blocks of:

Marie worked on some hand-quilting today, and contemplated her next project.

Carol managed to join us, an impressive feat with a five-week-old baby. She was even able to cut a few squares while Isabella was passed around the quilters.
The squares are for making prairie points to go around Carol's baby quilt, which we've seen before but which now has been quilted and is ready for binding:
The camera still doesn't like the lemon yellow colour, so you will just have to believe me that this quilt is lemon and green, not beige and green. The chenille squares add cuddly softness, don't they?

Vireya had to work this morning, then come straight from work so wasn't able to bring along anything to do, but she also is pondering what her next project will be.

Our next meeting will be in two weeks, on Monday 12th September. See you then!
