Quilters' Circle - 26th March, 2012

This is the 100th post on our blog. Hooray! Thanks to everyone who reads the blog. Please feel free to leave a comment. I know from the stats that 47 different people have visited in the last week, even though it is nearly a month since our last new post.

Autumn is definitely in the air now, and today Carol showed us her progress on the autumn quilt for her grandmother:
It looks great!

Today Carol re-arranged some parts of this quilt she started in 1995:
Since starting it she has changed her mind about the layout, so now she is doing a little negative sewing (unpicking) in a few places to suit her new layout.

Marie has finished all the sashing and the borders of this quilt since our last meeting:
The pattern is "Story-Time Stars" by Bonnie Hunter available for download here. Marie's is for a lucky little girl.

Mary came to visit us, and enjoyed looking through some of the house's collection of patchwork magazines to find projects suitable for a new quilter. Vireya came straight from work after being called in unexpectedly this morning, so she enjoyed the magazines as well.

We all made note of the quilt shows coming up that we would like to attend:
Essendon Quilters this coming weekend, and the AQC in two weeks.

Our next meeting at the house is a month away, because of the Easter break. We will be back again at the house on the fourth Monday in April, the 23rd. See you all then for our 101th post!
