This morning we held another remote meeting via Zoom. It was lovely to see you all, the chat definitely a welcome distraction.
We had some lovely quilts shown to the camera during the meeting. Frances shared a photo of a lovely split nine patch (also called disappearing nine patch) baby quilt which was sent off recently for an eight month old to enjoy:
Tracy announced that she is starting classes via Zoom, and she showed a sample that she made for one of the classes. The orange peels are raw edge appliqué from batik fabrics:
Marie showed a finished Hawaiian style appliqué mini quilt, which was started at a Southern Branch workshop. As she says: “It was my first attempt at appliqué. I enjoyed doing it but not sure I will do any more. I am more a machine piecer and quilter”:
Marie also sent us photos of some Christmas projects she has been working on recently. The Christmas tree is a panel from Pennsylvania a few years ago. She is hand sewing it with glittery thread and has just the top and bottom rows to do:
The Christmas table runner was done in a bit of a hurry before Christmas . Should really have done a bit more to it but ran out of steam:
“And lastly my twelve days of Christmas wall hanging. I enjoyed making it even if it took me twelve years to complete . It got started then it was put to one side, busy, then moved house, country, it was in a box , need I say more……”:
Chat varied from our Christmases to a space model Frances had made, and from currently famous Kerryman Donie O’Sullivan to temperature blankets…
As I said above, Tracy Wardle is starting classes online, she is offering several one-off and 4-6 weeks series of classes in the coming months. Do get in contact with her to find out more or to book, her contact details are on the Helpful Links page (or send us an email and we pass on your info to her).
Next meeting will be on the second Saturday in February (the 13th), we hope to see you there! In the mean time, don’t hesitate to contact us for any questions or suggestions… and keep sewing!
