Quilters' Circle - 26th August, 2013

Today was our last meeting in winter this year, and we could tell spring is around the corner as we didn't need any heating.

Today Glennys did some repair work on this very cute creature:
then started embroidering faces for a pair of Raggedy Ann and Andy dolls:

She also showed us the beginnings of a quilt for a baby boy. This block is not assembled yet, Glennys is still cutting out pieces. The whole quilt will consist of 9 of these square-in-a-square blocks:
We may see some more progress next time. All these fabrics are from Glennys' stash. They were purchased separately, and really go together well. Each fabric has the same pretty aqua-blue.

Marie showed us a project she has completed, but which we can't put on the blog just yet. Photos next time! She also brought along this pair of coasters she is making for some friends:

Sorry that photo is on its edge. Tilt your head to the left to see it properly!

We were all excited to see Marie's year quilt progress:
She has just completed week 27! We spent a lot of time looking at all the blocks and learning the significance of particular fabrics which caught our attention. It is hard to believe that it is more than half a year since Marie started this project.

Last time Vireya showed us a piece of African fabric she had to use for a challenge she is participating in, but we didn't photograph the fabric at the time. This is it:
As you can see, it was quite a challenging fabric. Today Vireya brought along the block she made from it:
She is looking forward to seeing what other people made of this fabric, when she attends the Seabreeze Quilters quilt-in next weekend.

Today Vireya was assembling parts to fill in an empty corner of her sunflowers wall-hanging:
It's getting there!

Our next meeting will be in two weeks, on 9th September. Hope we will see you again then!
