Quilters' Circle - 25th November, 2013

Four quilters gathered on this lovely spring day, our second-last meeting for the year.

Marie has added the binding to her placemat, and today she was stitching it down:

Vireya prepared some pentagon shapes, then clipped them in place ready to sew:

Glennys brought along her cutting gear:
And cut some pieces for the last of the quilts for her grandchildren. Then she finalised the arrangement of fabrics for her design:
Unfortunately this photo is on its side. If you tilt your head 90 degrees to the right it will be correct. This is something we noticed even when the photo was taken; the camera was flipping the photo when we tried to look at it. It's just one of life's mysteries.

Joy brought along this tessellated leaves piece she came across at home recently:
This is a tricky design to make. Joy's is all hand-pieced, and you can tell by the fabrics that she started this many years ago. There are a couple of internet sites offering easier ways to piece this, using techniques such as paper-piecing, or even a raw-edge appliqué method (found here).

Today Joy brought along some prepared pieces for a hexagon quilt-as-you-go project:

And here's one she finished:
Again, the photo has turned itself a quarter-turn. Sorry, but I can't fix it. If I turn it on the computer before uploading it, blogger rotates it again. So we are stuck with it like this.

Our next meeting will be the last for the year, on 9th of December. This will be our Christmas break-up. See you then!
