Quilters' Circle - 24th August, 2015

Our special visitor today was Glennys' 5-yr-old grand-daughter, Matilda, who brought along her own sewing:
She is doing a great job with her cross-stitch, isn't she? Glennys helps by marking with a disappearing marker where Matilda should put the needle in for her next stitch.

Debbie continued blanket-stitching around her nativity scene:

Glennys showed us this project she has started, using scraps and an interesting dresden plate technique:
 The pattern is Paradiso, from MoonShine by Monica Poole. However, today Glennys worked on perhaps the most unusual project we have seen:
Minotaur horns! They will be attached to a cap for her grand-son to wear to a Greek Mythology book-week event. Glennys is a champion, as she was given only a day or two of notice that the costume was needed. Which left us all wondering how families where no-one can sew manage to come up with costumes?

Marie stitched down binding:
on this lovely baby quilt:
We last saw this project when it was just some blocks back in June. It has come together beautifully.

Vireya removed paper from the most recent of her Zoo Animals blocks:
It's a monkey. Here are all the blocks so far:
There is only one remaining in the block-of the-month pattern from Quiet Play, although Vireya is planning to extend the quilt with some blocks from another Quiet Play pattern.

This month has five Mondays, so our next meeting is only a week away. See you then!
