Report on A.G.M. 7th March, 2019

The election of the new Programme Secretary and Treasurer took place tonight.

After the voting we had Show and Tell and Members’ Market.

Here are pictures of the show and Tell –

Daphne made this football themed quilt.

Jenny acquired this quilt top from another group which she helps run.

Mouse Foundation Pieced this quilt over fabric instead of paper. The colours are like very.

Jenny showed us her Memory Quilt which she received for her recent ‘big’ birthday.

She said she will have good memories with the squares.

Sarah showed us 3 of her recent makes. They look good.

Anne made this quilt and offered to put it into the Uttoxeter Show in April but unfortunately she was told it was too big for the show (?). Anne said she was not too happy with the colours.

I did not get any photos of the Members’ Market but there were some good bargains.

6th December meeting report

The ladies who attended this meeting appeared to have fun learning how to design their own Hawaiian templates. Thank you so much Paula and well done.

Here are some pictures of Show and Tell before we see some of the templates.

Birdy showed us her wall-hanging. Very colourful.

Sheila has made this lovely quilted Christmas Tree Skirt. Lovely!

Nicky showed us some of her purchases she acquired at the Houston Quilt Show.

More of Nicky’s purchases.

Paula spoke about some of the symbols that make up some of the Hawaiian designs and of her friendship with one of the Island’s foremost Quilters.

Now for some photos of the templates made by members.

This is one of Paula’s own Hawaiian quilts. Inspiring!

We had a lovely surprise from Paula and a couple of her friends from the U3A Ukelele Group. They gave us a rendition of a Hawaiian song and the played Merry Christmas to us.
