A couple of reminders:
- Membership fees are due: see treasurer, Grace.
- Any unfinished blocks for the contemporary 2018 raffle quilt must be in next week, also to Grace: this is how it looks so far:
Helena demonstrated 'Extreme Knitting' ... needles were huge, 15 cms in diameter and the blanket she knitted weighed 5 Kilos (Helena, if I've got those measurements wrong - let me know)
Show and Tell ... lots !
Jenny was on a roll with two finished tops, both for community: working on her UFOs. This one had many of Vi's blue fabrics.
And this one was based around the pink 'braid' make by Sue Robuck : both lovely memories of old friends.
I also had a finished top which was made from an UFO donated to the 'cupboard' ... all the triangles were already cut - I just had to put them together. The purple fabric was the left over from our 2008 raffle quilts - no scrap goes unused.
And a finished quilt for the community stash from Doreen and Gil: it was shown last week, but only photographed (very badly, sorry) on Thursday. This was also a UFO from a friend which became Gil's challenge. Heather was responsible for the free motion quilting. The quilt came with a matching bag by Gil. I think it should be called 'Orangeade' ?
They are still coming ... The first of Adrienne's three quilts is finished: worked on by many members. It is beautiful and will be donated to a very worthy charity after Adrienne has seen it.
And finally ... five more cot quilts: some from June and Beryl R and, I'm sorry, my notes have let me down.
A very productive day. Enjoy a good stitching week .. Iris
