Quilters' Circle - 23rd March, 2015

We were saddened today to hear that Marie's mother passed away last week. Our heartfelt condolences to her, and best wishes for her trip to Sydney for the funeral this week.

Today Debbie worked on the star blocks for her "Truly Aussie" quilt:
By the end of the meeting she'd made this much progress:
She has twelve more blocks to make. All the pieces are prepared, ready to sew:
We are all awed by her hand-piecing skill!

Glennys blanket-stitched around a bunny rug made of some very cute fabric:
There are two new arrivals she is sewing blankets for. She showed us all the lovely fabrics she has chosen but unfortunately we didn't get a picture of them.

Marie worked on the binding of the third of the community quilts she has made.
The previous two are in the last two meeting reports. Scroll down to see them. All three are beautiful.

On the weekend, Vireya attended an amazing exhibition of Japanese quilts in Ballan. She brought the catalogue along, although the photos in it didn't do the quilts justice.

Vireya showed us her "Wild and Goosey" blocks:
They are foundation paper-pieced. The pattern is by Bonnie Hunter, and can be downloaded from the QuiltMaker magazine website here.

As there are five Mondays this month, it is only a week until our next meeting. See you then!
