Tuesday's show and tell

Each week the walls are filled with colourful quilts recently finished by members. The room is a buzz with enthusiasm and encouragement from members who enjoy sharing their love of quilting with other members.

 Trish made this delightful banner for the club to display at the Quilt show in September. The butterflies have been donated to the community quilting group.


The black and white quilts were popular today.

Needle turn applique

Some weeks ago we had the pleasure of a visit to our club by Dianne Johnston who taught a class on needle turn applique to an enthusiastic and hard-working group of members.

It is unlikely that the fruits of this workshop will be evident at our 2015 Exhibition. However, we anticipate seeing some at our 2016 Exhibition!

Dianne brought some of her own work to show us and was happy for me to share these photos of her magnificent hand stitched quilts.

Simply amazing!
