Quilters' Circle - 10th August, 2015

Spring is in the air! Blossom trees are beginning to blossom, wattle is blooming, and there was a touch of warmth in the air today.

Debbie brought along her finished coasters and a folded-fabric star from the workshops she did at the recent Craft and Quilt Fair:
Scroll down to see how the coasters looked at our last meeting, before they were assembled with their backing. Today Debbie continued stitching the zig-zag design in the top left of the photo.

We had a few magazines to look at today, including an issue of Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks. It is very hard to find in Australia, but Vireya found it in Ballarat:

Vic the Manager popped in to give us each a new fridge magnet!

Marie continued adding appliqued dots to the baby quilt she is making:
And here is how the whole top is looking now:
Marie also had some unusual show-and-tell:
A toilet-paper wrapper! But the interesting part is the concept behind it. The company gives 50% of their profit to WaterAid to build toilets in developing countries. You can read more about it here.

Our next meeting will be in two weeks, on 24th August, See you then!
