Quilters' Circle - 30th June, 2014

It's the fifth Monday of the month, the last day of the financial year, and definitely winter!

This artwork left in the room by another group looks very quilt-like:

Debbie stitched another of the sayings for her Truly Aussie quilt (designed by Helen Stubbings), and showed us a panel of six she has done since we last saw her:
Closer view of one:
This lead to a small discussion of how many sandwiches are usually said to be short. There are variants with a few, a couple, one, a half, and probably others. This picnic seems very lacking, if seven sandwiches have gone missing.

Marie has assembled another single-bed sized quilt top for her group's community quilt drive:
Fortunately someone else is going to quilt these bed-sized ones, but Marie quilted the smaller ones herself. Today she was stitching down the binding on a baby-sized one:
Cute elephants!

Vireya played with some fabric selections for another flower in her hexagon garden quilt:
Last week she was cutting out a t-shirt pattern, and today she wore a t-shirt she made this week:
Although she didn't use last week's pattern to make this, she did use some techniques that she learnt in the Craftsy class.

Next weekend (4th - 6th) is the Essendon Quilters' Show, which we are all probably going to attend. It is at a new venue this year, the Sports and Performance Centre at Moonee Ponds Primary School.

Our next session will be on 14th July. Please pop in again then and see what we've been up to.
