Quilters' Circle - 25th May, 2015

We had a surprise visit today from Dianne, who blogs at Coburg Craft Stuff. She donated some craft books,
which we enjoyed looking through. We left a few for the craft and sewing groups which meet later in the week.

Debbie is nearing the end of her "Truly Aussie" quilt (designed by Helen Stubbings). Here's one side of the quilt:
and the other:
Doesn't it look great? And here's a close-up view of where she is up to:
stitching down the sashing which covers the joins between these quilt-as-you-go blocks.
 Almost done!

Marie is appliqueing circles to make the flowers on the stems she was doing at our last meeting:
Very cute!

Vireya has a birthday this week, so there were some goodies
and a lovely card:
Vireya showed us these partially assembled blocks which are from the book "Cultural Fusion Quilts" by Sujata Shah.
They are not Vireya's normal sort of piecing, as they are cut without measurements, and joined without worrying about accuracy. She enjoyed the unusual process and is sure to make a few more.

Our next meeting is a month away, because of the public holiday in June. We'll meet again on 22nd June.
