Braintree Quilters

Our new Quilting Group has got off to a flying start. We have nine members, but would like a few more. We worked on our kaleidoscopic blocks this week, led by Grace. The initial cutting of the fabric needed care and precision, but then the fun began. Circles were laid out for all to see before sewing commenced. Those of us who joined in finished at least three or four circles in the time.

Others worked on projects that they wanted to finish.


New baby sewing ideas

Wow! 2013, where have all the years since the Millennium disappeared to?

This month I am concentrating on making gifts for my daughter and son in law as they are expecting a  baby in March.  I am working on a baby quilt this week.

Tomorrow I am helping to start a new quilting group in my home town of Braintree, Essex. The hardest part was finding a suitable hall that had a free day twice a month.  We filled the places in three days, I’m delighted so many quilters are keen to join us. We are going to work together to fill the timetable for our first year, and have already pencilled in Christmas projects for our July sessions.  We are buzzing with ideas and just raring to go.

Have fun and enjoy your sewing this week.  Life is what you make it, so go and spread the joy.
