Hi All. It was terrific to see so many returning and new people at our September meeting – despite the foul weather conditions!
The meeting was highlighted with Laura continuing her demonstration of QAYGFMQAL. Over the last three meeting Laura has inspired many with her passion for free motion quilting.
Members and visitors always wait in anticipation to see the incredible quilts / bags etc completed by all and this meeting proved to be no exception. The designs, colours and variety of techniques demonstrated was truly inspirational.
Beryl proudly displaying her travel bag (completed as part of a book review)! She is now making a matching IPAD cover and pouch – all for her travels to the USA and Hawaii. We wish Berly all the best when she leaves on Sunday 4 October and hopes that she gets to visit many a quilting shop in the States!
Maire’s quilt inspired by Phillipa Naylor – this quilt was a work of art commenced in 2004.
Jodie ventured into the “Acuquilt Club” and created her first rag quilt with terrific results.
This quilt by Cat was 6-9 years in the making – we all have one of these in our “to be finished” boxes!!!!
Some other great works proudly displayed!
