Quilting Group

With both of us spending more time closer to home my sister and I thought it would be nice if we started a quilting group of local friends with a common interest.

Today we met for the first time just to set up some general guidelines for the group and some of the ladies brought some show and tell:-

Rewa brought a quilt top she is working on for one of her grandchildren.

Debbie has been working on two nursery style quilts.

This one has been finished except for the binding.

Very cleverly executed in lovely, bright colours.

Maxie was working on an Irish Chain quilt top.

Andreena is in the middle of making a Christmas table runner.

Joanne brought a sampler quilt which she has finished up to the binding stage.

Lovely combination of quilted blocks and applique.

We are looking forward to many more happy gatherings before the year is over.

What great work these ladies have done. Are they going to start CQ or is it to be just work on whatever you like?

Yes, the ladies will be coming once a fortnight on Wednesdays and we look forward to more of the same sort of sharing.

I am the only crazy quilter in the group so if we do any of that sort of thing, it will be because I get it going - we will wait and see - no hurries - just a casual group with lots to share.
