We have our quilting retreat this weekend, so I am doing the blog before I go.
Thank you Helena for the free motion quilting workshop today. It was a pity more members didn't attend but it is awkward for many to bring along their machines.
Susan H. and I learnt a lot and tried hard. Not easy but requires a lot of practice.
Iris spent a lot of time sorting one of the cupboards. Grace and Debbie A. told us about a workshop that they had attended at Material Obsession where they started on a traveller's quilt.
It is a great idea. Collect fabric, cottons etc on your travels then start off with a piece of fabric. Handstitch pathways etc to make a quilt record of your travels adding bits and pieces that you find along the way.
Thank you Lindy for the avocadoes and bananas from your farm.. They are always a welcome surprise.
Show and Tell:
Two baby quilts from Alison's friend. The check fabric was donated to us by the Miranda Patchwork shop. It is very soft and perfect for young skin.
