This morning we met online at our festive meeting. We even had a visit from Santa Assumpta… Thank you, Assumpta for making the effort, even if it was warm!
There were a good few Christmas related quilts shown on screen, and sewing plans mentioned for during Christmas. Several of us are making or planning to make Mary Palmer’s mystery quilt, we look forward to seeing what they will look like…
Frances had selected a few quiz questions from Christmas quilt quizzes set by Ann Prendergast in previous years, and we had a go at an online quiz which was much fun.
We showed the photos that were sent to us for Show & Tell as a slide show, and we could talk about them which was brilliant!
Below the show and tell photos for everyone to see:
Tracy says: I got the bug for making postcards from an IPS challenge a couple of years ago and this year I’ve been making loads of Christmas present postcards – these are the only ones I remembered to photograph. Quick, simple and so cute. I love them.
She also made yoga bags as presents: I adapted a pattern I found online and made these snazzy yoga mat bags as Christmas gifts for family members who took up yoga during Lockdown.
The last photo from Tracy is of the advent calendar she made for her son and his wife: I based the tree design on our old family Advent calendar and embroidered each pocket with a design by or inspired by Barri Sue Gaudet – a lot of work! I started work on it in September….and they even got it in time for 1st December. I’m really happy with it and I think they are too.
You can find more about the designer Barri Sue Gaudet at her website bareroots.com.
Heidi send us the pictures below:
The first two quilts are made from jelly rolls: Mary suggested that the Sunday quilters group do a project with a jellyroll and that was my end result.
This is her cat quilt. We showed this quilt in progress a few months back, and it is now finished. Do you see the paw “prints” and fish bones in the detail image below?
Lastly, Heidi sent us a photo of her finished tweed appliqué quilt:
Have a happy Christmas, everyone, and we are already making plans for our meetings in the new year. We will let you know details nearer the time.
