It was a sunny though windy day at patchwork today. The wind was taken out of our sails though with the news that one of our regular bloggers, Colleen, is unwell and in hospital. We all wish her well and a speedy recovery.
Last Saturday, November 4th, a bus load of intrepid quilters from Maclean and surrounding areas, travelled to Alstonville for the annual Zone Day get-together. A pleasant day with numerous, colourful quilts being shown for ‘show and tell’. It was good to meet other enthusiasts and catch up with old friends. The next Zone Day will be held in Murwillumbah.
Today we had our last in-house mini workshop for the year with Elizabeth showing us two different ways to bind a quilt or art quilt. The first method was a rather intriguing 2-toned binding with the two colours changing at the corners. The second was a fusible binding with raw edges used for art quilts; a quick and easy method for these small quilts that aren’t washed.
Dianne has nearly finished her huge green quilt and spread it out for everyone to envy. Sorry the whole quilt photo won’t open so this is a peek from a few weeks ago.
Next week we share the fourth and last of our art quilts for 2017. We are also looking for ideas for next year’s raffle quilt. Til then have a lovely sewing week. Penne
