Another workshop was recently conducted by Angela called Splendid Strings. Strips were cut from leftovers or unwanted pieces.

The ladies proudly displayed their blocks ready to be put together.



A few of the completed tops were hung on display the next week.
There were also other completed quilts on show. These will be on display at the Toowoomba Quilters Club exhibition in September.

This quilt was made for a friend who loves fishing so had a seaside theme.
