Quilters' Circle - 26th October, 2015

In the last report, I suggested that there might not be one of this meeting, but as you can see, I was wrong!

Four quilters attended our meeting. Debbie worked on her lovely applique project:
and showed us the start she has made on quilting her Christmas quilt:
She is hand-quilting, using a "Thimble Lady" quilting hoop:

Glennys is able to walk around and drive again, which she is very happy about. But she is still working on hand-sewing projects, including this embroidered Christmas bunting:
Here's a couple of close-ups:

The pennants will be stung together with strips of Christmas fabric. Lovely!

Marie has finished constructing the top of the mystery quilt she showed us the beginnings of last time:
It's very striking! I forgot to ask if others doing the mystery have already got the final instructions, so I hope this photo didn't spoil anyone's surprise.

Today Marie continued sewing down the binding on her baby quilt:

And she wasn't alone, because Vireya was also sewing down binding:
She has to get hers finished by Thursday, as she has entered this quilt in the Ballaarat Quilters' Exhibition next weekend:
(The pattern is Story-Time Stars, designed by Bonnie Hunter.) Based on how far Vireya got round the quilt today, she estimates another 7 hours of binding sewing, and then an hour or so of sewing on a hanging sleeve. Looks like a busy few days ahead!

Our next meeting is in two weeks, on the 9th November. Perhaps we will see you again then!
