The club has been very busy hosting sewing days for the younger generation during the school holidays. There were some eager young sewers guided along by there Grandma or friend to learn the basics of sewing squares together.
The club has also had a challenge for members to make a wallhanging with a vase of flowers.
The wallhangings were displayed and judged by silent voting for the most creative, bright and the best vase. It was very hard to make a decision. It was also a celebration for the annual Christmas in July day. A quilt was donated to the Toowoomba Community Baptist Church to help them with their fundraising.
We at Toowoomba Quilters had a very exciting week when we hosted Michele Hill from South Australia for a trunk show and followed up with a workshop the next day. A large gathering of quilters came to listen to Michele talk about her quilting journey and admire her beautiful quilts.
Larry celebrated a birthday too while he was visiting us.
An in house project was conducted by Angela to help members make the Split Steps Block pattern from McCalls Quilting.com These ladies made lots of progress so will be soon seeing some completed tops. There is lots of space and good lighting to have sewing days in the club's new premises.
These are some of the colour combinations that were used. There will be some stunning quilts on display at our upcoming exhibition in September.
There was also another 2 completed tops on display, made from left over fabrics.
