It was a fantastic meeting this month, as always. Moya Geraghty of Patchwork Plus brought her always-excellent shop and we were all tempted to buy some goodies.
We were all particularly inspired by the talk, given by Sandra Jansen on ‘Luscious Log Cabin and its Variations’. Despite issues with the technology, she won through and enthused us all anew about the Log Cabin block and all of the amazing effects you can achieve. We hope to persuade her to give us a workshop in the not too distant future.
Here’s a taste of the quilts Sandra showed off…
And when it came to our members’ turn to impress, they didn’t let us down…
First we have Siobhán’s plaid quilt, then Clare’s spool bunting and stars quilt, Heidi brought along her mini landscape from the previous month’s workshop and the second row of her delicate appliqué quilt. Then we have Lesley’s award winning mini quilt and the ‘trophy’ she won, which was made by none other than Lynne Edwards!
Next we have Assumpta with another of the pieces from last month’s workshop and Anne’s adorable baby quilt, followed by two quilts from Veronica – one inspired by Frances’ blue and cream quilt last month and a calendar quilt. Mary Palmer brought in three quilts – a beautiful batik grid, a cute modern baby quilt and a One Block Wonder made with an unusual print – see the back. Ann brought in her completed Jolly Holly Table Runner from a workshop by Tracy Wardle, and a pretty in pink baby quilt.
It was a great meeting and we’re looking forward to our next, which will be on Saturday 11th March. See you then!
