Today was an extremely interesting and productive day for Cutting Edge members.
As well as having a show and tell session, there was a demonstration of Japanese hand quilting, which was fascinating!
At Show and Tell members brought pieces of work that they had nearly, or just completed. Hilary is on a mission to finish a loose fabric collage of a butterfly which was started in the summer and is to be a Christmas present for her niece – lucky girl!
Liz showed a quilt that she had finished for her grandson who lives in Sweden. A lovely camouflage front
and animals and trees on the back
Jeannie also brought along a quilt that she had finished, which was made with Moda Bake fabric strips. Beautiful colours.
Brenda shared a cross stitch that she has done of her grandchildren, who are now grown up. The pattern was developed on the computer from a photograph and the finished piece of work is stunning!
Last but not least Dilys brought a beautiful Japanese hand stitched quilt that she has just completed.
Following on from this group member Dianne demonstrated how to do Japanese hand quilting. It looked as though it would be quite complicated but easier that expected when shown how to do it.
She also brought along some of the lovely things she had made.
Hilary would like to extend her thanks to everyone who made donations to the Philippines recovery fund- £51.50 was raised. Hilary is visiting the Philippines in December – her trip is to areas outside of the disaster zone so she will not have to alter her plans.
£100 was also raised for the Multiple Sclerosis Society through the sale of fabrics and books. As well as being talented the group is very generous!
It was yet another great day – with a great buzz in the air and we are all now looking forward to our Christmas lunch on 6 December!
