Quilters' Circle - 11th May, 2015

It is the 6th birthday of our blog. Happy Blogiversary to us!

Dorothea from the knitting group showed us this lovely quilt she is making for a grandbaby in America. She purchased the pattern at the recent AQC. It is from a NZ company, and we will add the details here when we can.
Very cute!

Marie is making good progress on the baby quilt she is making for her neighbours. The baby is due in about a week, so it is a race to see which is ready first - the baby or the quilt.
Today she stitched down a few more stems for the floral border.

Marie also showed us a technique she is learning for doing a decorative flange binding. This is the pretty little quilt she is binding:

Very effective!

Glennys worked on her English paper-piecing project:

Vireya showed us the latest of her zoo animals - this is a BOM by Kristy at Quiet Play:
The giraffe is the block for May. Today she removed the last little pieces of paper from the back,
and then cut out the pieces of an applique project:

Debbie stitched around a shepherd in the nativity scene she is working on:

Our next meeting will be in two weeks, on 25th May. Join us as we begin our 7th year of blogging!
