We have had another fun and productive meeting. Everyone worked on their own project, with lots of happy chatter in between. Everyone’s UFOs are very different and individual, leading to lots of oohs! and aah! Many of us are travelling to the Duxford show this week, all determined to see what is new.
Launa was busy learning to quilt her first cushion.
Linda was working on a gorgeous teddy panel. She backed it with a brightly coloured fleece. The fleece was in a jigsaw design.
Grace was working on her tablecloth. She cut and then sewed more blocks so it gradually increased in size. Its a lovely pattern, shown off in such beautiful fabrics.
Mandy was finishing her table runner, sewing the binding takes a long time to finish neatly.
We had a visitor to our meeting who wanted to see what we make. She is hoping to join us next week. We still have a couple of places if you would like to quilt and sew in the company of like minded ladies.
We all enjoyed our third meeting together yesterday! Work in progress was the order of the day and everyone was kept very busy. Its lovely to be able to work on large tables with space to spread our work out.
Two Bow Tie blocks
Diane is making large blocks for her sampler quilt. She has sewn two Bow Tie quilt blocks, which were beautifully pieced together.
Mandy’s table runner before binding
Mandy started to bind her table runner using the dark maroon material matching her small triangles. It was super to see that she had incorporated her three kaleidoscope patches she made at our last meeting.
Whilst Janet continued to hand quilt her beautiful baby quilt.
We are a new club and still have a couple of spaces if you would like to join us for a days quilting on a Wednesday, beginners or experienced quilters are welcome. For more details look at our Braintree Quilters page.
