This week saw a smaller turnout due to rainy weather and Thursday was close to being the coldest June day on record.
Our scheduled Quilt Show meeting was deferred until next week due to a couple of absences.
Grace gave us a wonderful demonstration of “Kawandi” quilting. Whereas Kantha quilting tends to quilt in parallel lines with raw edges, Kawandi is a method of sewing from the outer side to the middle whilst turning over raw edges of fabric pieces which have been tucked under the existing pieces of fabric already sewn down,around the border, to the backing and wadding.
Here are some an examples:
A reminder of the retreat to be held at the Hunter Valley Hotel Academy from Friday 15 October to Sunday 17 October. Please let Narelle know if you are interested.
Carolyn brought in another 10 baby quilts for the Grace Centre at Westmead Hospital. This brings Carolyn’s total to over 300 quilts. We all expressed our amazement at the amount of binding this represented....nearly a kilometre of binding!
Until next week.
