The May meeting was held at Stone Station, it being the only venue available that evening. It was a bit of a squeeze but we did all manage to tuck ourselves into a corner – having first shopped at The Corner Patch (our Trader of the Month), bought our raffle tickets and fetched a cup of something and a biscuit.
At this month’s meeting Anne Garner talked about ‘My Quilt Journey’, with great enthusiasm. Anne, using a lot of beautiful quilts was able to show the effect using different fabrics had on the same quilt pattern and how her quilting has evolved since she retired from primary school teaching. We also saw examples of beautiful long arm quilting. There was a lot to inspire us and for us to aspire to. (Anne also likes owls). The photo below shows the table Anne was loading with quilts ready to show us – and they were still coming out of bags and boxes – !
We also had a Show and Tell of our members’ own quilts and Marjorie produced an Owl quilt for that. Here are just some of those quilts and their makers –
Our next meeting will be back in the usual venue in Walton on June 2nd when our speaker will be Joan Fisher talking about The Tent Makers of Cairo.
Coming soon – a report on Sunday’s Workshop with Jan Hazzard.
