IPS Southern Branch met on 10 June, with main speaker Tina Sullivan Hawkes on “A Quilter’s Journey,” Patchwork Plus shop in attendance and a great show and tell from our members. Assumpta opened with a moment of remembrance for Kate O Kelly, who died 4 May 2017. Kate attended our meetings with her mother Hilary and we ask you keep the family in your thoughts.
Erin, our previous chair, presented the last part of the 2016 -2017 block of the month – how to put it all together! Find the instructions here.
Tina willingly shared her quilting story, from “only wanting to ‘collect’ nice fabric!” to running quilting groups in Knockavilla and at Colaiste Choilm.

She shared this top tip: “When working with flannel – wash on the rinse cycle and tumble dry before use – this will deal with any shrinkage.”
