Quilters' Circle - 25th June, 2012

Can you believe that June is nearly over already? None of us can! Today was our only June meeting, because of the public holiday two weeks ago.

Mary popped in to return a couple of items and say Hi before she heads off overseas. We all hope she has a lovely trip, and will look forward to her traveller's tales.

Marie has been busy since our last meeting. First she made this small quilt top from the off-cuts of the "double cut" twisted pinwheel quilt she showed us last time:

Then she made this quilt using the same twisted pinwheel technique:
Sky blues and the propeller-like design make it an ideal gift for a couple who fly. 

Today Marie joined a few hexagons together:

Joy showed us the beginnings of her next project:
She is hand-piecing these triangles together into rectangle shapes, but they eventually will become diamonds. It will be interesting to see how they all come together.

Glennys was "volunteered" into replacing some missing beads on small girl's dance costume, so that was her project today:
Good as new!

Vireya made this star to add to the others she has made at recent meetings:
She also showed us her design for how they are going to go together, but no photo was taken of that. She has a few more stars to make before she starts assembling the entire design.

Our next meeting will be on the 9th July.  Happy quilting until we see you then!
