Quilters' Circle - 8th October, 2012

It's the second Monday in October, so here we are back again. Once again we had only a small group this time.

We each brought along books, magazines, patterns and catalogues to read between stitching:

Vireya took advantage of the large tables to spread out a dress pattern and cut out the main pieces to test the fit:
Not the final fabric she wants to use, just something cheap for testing purposes. After that she made a few more diamonds for her on-going project:

Marie showed her progress on a bag she is making:
The pieces at the top right will be joined to create the second side of the bag. It's a project from an old Homespun magazine, which didn't have a designer's name on it. (Added later: Please see the comments below, where the editor of Homespun has identified the pattern and the issue.) Today Marie worked on a different project, and appliqu├ęd these thin green lines:
We will have to wait until another meeting to find out what they are for!

Our next meeting is in two weeks, on 22nd October. See you then!


  1. Hi Vireya

    Lovely to see what you've been making and glad to see that Maria is making a bag out of an old issue of Homespun. I thought I'd let you know that we never publish projects without designers' names so, in this case, the bag that Maria is making is from Homespun Vol 4 No 3 and is called the Sashiko Shoulder Bag by Julie Peters. Hope Maria has fun making it.
