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
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
Some of our smaller quilts were displayed around the walls of the Assembly room
Also in the Assembly Room was our Vegetable Stall offering a variety or hand made vegetables by our enthusiastic members.
We had a wonderful variety of work in the tea and cake area along with our UFO table which was popular and our Christmas corner.
Other items on display was our 20th Anniversary Challenge, My Home in A3, a selection of items made at various workshops and the Challenge Six groups beautiful items.
The winner of Betty’s Quilt that was made by Margaret was won by Pauline, many of our members were very envious as it is such a beautiful quilt.
