Quilters' Circle - 30th January, 2012

It was a hot and sticky day. Not unexpected weather for this time of year, we suppose! A small group of quilters attended the Quilters' Circle fifth Monday meeting.

Marie brought along a Down Under Quilts magazine fresh from the letterbox. March looks like a big month for quilt shows in Victoria:
There are a few there we might make it to. In the meantime Marie is still appliquéing circles; quilter's circles.

Vireya spread out the sunflower blocks she has made so far. Will they be a wall hanging? What will go between them? How many more will she make?
Maybe not a lot more, given that today she was playing with ideas for another project using these shapes:

Later on, Richard joined us. He had purchased some fusible bias tape to outline the design elements of his quilt:
The package says, "It will eliminate time consumption in making and pinning it in place." I guess they are right, because it goes on pretty quickly! Richard will stitch it down later. The black lines really add impact to the design:

Our next meeting will be in two weeks, on 13th February. We hope you can join us!
