Oh how I wish I styled this photo a bit better!! This one in the foreground was an amazing quilt - made from men's shirts gathered from charity shops. bordered and backed with calico and hand tied with a brownish silk. Kath really made a fantastic job, it even has a pocket here and there salvaged from the shirts. Because its hand tied and not quilted by machine or hand, it has a lovely loftiness about it. A mCuhh9]Octor!!
These quilts were handed in, before we sxwpc|JRik)on - whick means that our little group must have sewn and knitted over 50 quilts, thanks to 2 sessions and alot of home-work. How brilliant!! and to say that some are first time quilters too -a fine bunch of wonderful women (and one small star of a boy!!) Now we start afresh and start to count again for 2012.....!!
|This yellow fabric is recycled duvet and curtains...quite zingy|
|Here are some of the busy bees...15 joined in this time|
|and here's another one being made from the shirt blocks..perfect for boys. I love the reds and oranges|
Huge thank yous to all those wonderful ladies that ventured out even with the threat of bad weather advancing...and the snow did start about 3 pm. It was a lovely atmosphere and some fantastic quilts were started. We will be back again in force in May!! Watch this space.
