Our November meeting was very well attended. We welcomed Áine with her lovely selection from The Lismore Quilt Co., below at a quiet moment during our speaker:
After a short introduction from our Chair, we had a great time listening to the stories of Loretta O’Brien from Limerick, and watched as she showed us one amazing quilt after another. Loretta is a long-time quilter who loves to take part in challenges and exhibitions. She often uses appliqué, and is very fond of triangles…
Our Show and Tell had lovely quilts from many of our members:
After the meeting Tracy Wardle hosted a brilliant workshop for about ten of us. She had us all making Christmas decorations using foundation paper piecing. I don’t think anyone finished the six patterns on the day, but several of us made at least three, and we were well instructed how to finish them at home. Tracy even showed us how to make a little pocket on the back for a sweet or chocolate!
Our next meeting will be on 14 December.
