Today we had our first meeting together for 2016. It was a smallish turnout but everyone was cheerful and glad to be back to our usual routines and handwork.
Next week will be our first General Meeting for the year and then we will miss a week to celebrate Australia Day with our families.
Claudette and helpers are powering along with the raffle quilt preparation. Blocks will soon be given out to members for finishing.
The Art Quilters met for a quick discussion re 2016. We will be presenting four quilts over the year to our own theme and techniques. Some challenges will be drawn each viewing to apply to the next quilt. Art quilters may chose one challenge to include in their quilts. The first challenges are “Use a button to inspire you”, “Include a tree or trees” or “Incorporate some ‘boro’.” We will see the first art pieces on March 14th.
Show and Tell:
Liz Imrie had a lovely quilt top in Kaffe Fassett fabrics. Marcia Hunter is finishing a deceased estate crochet rug which is gorgeous. And Colleen had a ‘boro’ purse which she had cleverly done on the machine.
