Quilters' Circle - 13th August, 2012

Happy August! If you are reading this, Joy, we hope you are feeling better soon. We miss you!

Since our last meeting Lyn has quilted and bound her 9-patch quilt:
Her next project will be a wholecloth quilt. Lyn has plans to make quilts for each of her grandchildren by the end of the year, but has decided that piecing isn't her thing.

Glennys brought along this lovely quilt top that we have seen before, and the backing and batting. We all helped with pinning the central section of it together:
Glennys started this quilt at a workshop with Teresa Horsburgh, and it is based on Teresa's design Floral Garden. However, Glennys's fabric choices resulted in a quilt which is quite different from the published pattern. Now that the central section is pinned to stabilise it, Glennys will be able to thread-baste the whole quilt.

Marie has finished her twisted pinwheel hanging, including the binding:
Today she sewed a label to the back, so it is ready to be given to the happy couple.

 Our next meeting is in two weeks, on 27th August. Hope to see you again then!
