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.
