September Meeting

This month we welcomed Greta Fitchett who showed us her colourful reflection quilts.

She explained to us how she constructs her quilts and where the ideas arise.

This beautiful quilt of the Cathedral was on display at The Festival of Quilts this year.


Greta’s husband is a keen artist and drew this delightful sketch of our members


Quilt Show 2018

They say ‘Every Picture Tells a Story’ and these pictures show the talent and enthusiasm we have in our group.  Thank you to everyone who contributed to make our show a success.

The Sales Table true to form was as popular as ever and we wish to thank everyone who made items for their efforts there was some exquisite work.

The main Assembly room held our large quilts and made very popular viewing

March 2018

We had the pleasure of Jenny Rundle at our meeting this month.  Jenny delighted us not only with her lovely quilts but told us about her BEM.  Well done Jenny on a wonderful achievement.

It was interesting to hear about the Olympic quilts and Jenny also explained to us why she calls herself a Patchworker and not a Quilter – she rarely quilts her own quilts – hence her choice of Patchworker. Jenny shared with us her experience of entering quilts at the Festival of Quilts and showed us some of her entries.

Jenny then went on to show us her Pizzaz quilts and many of us have signed up to do her forthcoming workshop.  Slideshow below.

January 2018

We began the New Year and evening with a very inspiring and informative talk from Jill Rose Brennan.  Jill is a talented Quilter and seamtress and shared with us her sewing experiences since childhood.  The samples of quilts and wallhanging Jill brought with her varied from vintage to up to date items created in her studio.


We started the evening with a show and tell of a few sashes that we are making for our Quilt show later this year.  Many thanks for bringing them along ladies.


We then enjoyed Jill’s talk and exhibits.  I hope you enjoy the slide show.
