Quilters' Circle - 30th April, 2012

Here we are again for the fifth Monday of April.

Glennys brought along her machine, and whipped up a couple of baby quilts. Well, quilt tops, anyway. Baby quilt number one:
And baby quilt number two (progress shot):
Later the first one was slightly re-constructed to change the orientation of one square. The quilts will have borders added later, but it was a very productive afternoon. Glennys needs to sew fast because of the imminent arrival of four babies in her circle of family and friends.

Meanwhile the rest of us worked on slower projects. It was almost a step-by-step lesson in English paper-piecing. Vireya cut out some (not hexagonal) templates she had printed:

Mary covered her hexagonal templates with fabric:

And Marie sewed her hexagons together and then removed some of the paper templates:
While we worked there was lots to talk about, tea to drink, and magazines to be inspired by. Before we knew it, it was time to go home.

Our next meeting will be in two weeks, on 14th May. See you then!
