Quilters' Circle - 22nd June, 2015

It was the shortest day of the year, and very cold outside, but there was lots of lovely work to look at today. People have been busy in the month since our last meeting!

Marie was appliqueing the last side of her hexagon panel to the background:
She gave us a sneak peek at how the rest of this lovely baby quilt will go together:
It is beautiful!

Vireya showed us this gift she received in a present exchange at a "Christmas in June" event at another quilting group:
It can be used as a decoration, or as a book-mark. It is beautifully made.

Today Vireya was removing tiny bits of paper from the back of her most recent Zoo Animals block:
Some of those tiny pieces were a bit tricky to remove. A pair of tweezers came in handy! Here's all six completed blocks:
There are three more blocks in the quilt, then it will be time to start putting them together.

Debbie has been doing some EPP with hexagons, trying out different methods to see which she likes best:
She also showed us a fund-raising project she is working on for another group. Some donated linen tea-towels and donated prepared hexagons go together to make embellished tea-towels which should sell well at their market stall:
It is hard to find linen tea-towels these days. These ones are from Poland, and are a beautiful quality.

Glennys is making a wall-hanging for a granddaughter:
Each block has a little pocket for a toy or other precious item. The fabrics are scraps from the quilt Glennys made for this lucky girl. The pattern is designed by Amanda Lefebure, and appears in this magazine from Spotlight:

Today Glennys continued with her EPP project, which is coming together well:

Our next meeting will be in only one week, on 29th June. It's our 5th-Monday bonus meeting. See you again then!
