A Busy June Meeting

Sheila was busy chairing the meeting and taking the minutes with a lot to be discussed for our group. Check your minutes to keep up to date.  Our annual general meeting will be happening on August 7th so think about nominating for a position so our group can continue and grow stronger!  Make sure you are financial member so that you can nominate and vote.  Fees are $40.00 and payable to Robyn.

Show and Tell included a hexagon quilt Grace made between 2001 and 2007.  She was still making hexagons last night!

Notice the interesting prairie points on the edge.

Glo brought along her "vintage" first quilt comprising a mixture of polyester and cotton fabrics and very puffy wadding!  The appliqué was a brave attempt and it was even hand quilted!  The original quilt had a ruffle border and Glo is currently replacing it with a simple binding.  It was a McCalls craft pattern of 70's era!

Rosie proudly displayed her dinosaur quilt.

Notice the paw prints on the back.  A large dinosaur will also feature in the centre.  Bring it back for another look Rosie when it is finished!

Rosie also showed us a quilt top she made with the Kilmore quilters at a Friday night get-together.  It has come together really well with the use of a feature fabric made into a snowball block and alternated with a nine patch block of coordinating fabrics. Rosie can show you more pictures of quilts made from this concept.

Annie M has made good use of the fabrics she bought from Aldi.  It looked really nice front and back!
(I notice all the sewing paraphernalia has disappeared from Aldi!)

And finally Sheila is also working on a dinosaur quilt----

Not sure who will be the recipient of this great effort!
