Quilters' Circle - 29th October, 2012

We had a lovely surprise today when Marilyn joined us. It was great to see her again; we've missed her since she moved to the country. She worked on this this motto today:
The pattern for this quilt is called "Love Letters", but I don't know the designer's name. Searching the internet finds lots of quilt patterns with this name, but none of them are this one. If anyone knows, please leave a message in the comments.

Marie has quilted the little boy's quilt we saw as a top in July, and today she was finishing the binding:
You can't see much of the top in this shot, but the pattern is "Sparkling Gemstones" from the book Jelly Roll Quilts by Pam and Nicky Lintott.

Vireya didn't do any quilt-related sewing today, but she did take advantage of the large tables and space to cut out a dress-making project, after ironing her fabric:
The colour is a bit washed out in the shot, but it is a springy green in real life.

If all the shots look a bit dark today, there's a good reason. Most of the lights in our room were not working. An electrician arrived to check it out late in our session, and discovered someone had turned them off at the switchboard. I should have taken a picture of the switch, which is actually covered in a sign that says, "Do not touch this switch". I guess it's not the first time this has happened!

Our next meeting will be in two weeks, on 12th November. See you again then.
