Quiters' Circle - 11th July, 2016

Hello to any loyal readers! Our meetings have continued on every 2nd, 4th and occasional 5th Monday, it is just the reports that haven't happened.

We missed Debbie at our meeting today, and send her our deepest condolences for her recent loss.

Vireya showed us a BOM (Block of the Month) she has been doing this year:
The pattern is Hazel, designed by Esther Aliu. The top will get a narrow border to complete it.

Today Vireya was sewing down binding on another project:
This is her Zoo Animals quilt that was a BOM last year, designed by Kristy @ Quiet Play:
Last seen on our blog as 9 blocks in September, and now almost a completed quilt.

Marie worked on EPP stars, made with reproduction fabrics:

She has already completed about 60 stars, but has a few more to do for this project. Here are the next few to be sewn:
One point must have been left at home for this one:
And which way should these curly "M"s face: In?
 Or out?

Marie carries her quilting projects to meetings in this bag:
 Which is embellished front and back with rosettes of hexagons with a sewing theme:
We saw these hexagons under construction a couple of years ago, but haven't shown photos of the completed bag. Last seen when Marie was stitching the rosettes to the backing fabric back in November 2014.

We missed Glennys as well today, and hope all is well with her.

Our next meeting will be in two weeks, on 25th July. But when our next meeting report will be, it is hard to say!
