First Day of Term!

Tuesday 9 September was the first day back after the summer break and how industrious members have been since we last met!

As usual there was ‘morning prayers’ – an opportunity to share news and gossip.

This was then followed by ‘show and tell’ which confirmed once again that there are many talented people in our group!

Chris has been busy consolidating what she learnt at the recent Pat Archibald workshop by producing a lovely ghost image of a yacht.

Irene showed everyone a quilt that she has completed. This was her first ever – wow!

The individual panels in it are wonderful.


Jeannie showed an Amish quilt that she had bought on her recent travels to Montana, USA.

And, she also showed a quilt that she has made to raise money for the Philippines Back to Sea Charity. Not sure where she finds the time in between her travels!

Yvonne showed two things she had been working on and Hilary was particularly impressed because they both involved recycling. The necklaces have been made with washers and ribbon.


And Yvonne is recycling a lace and embroidered tablecloth that belonged to her mother in law to make it into vintage bunting for her daughter.

Dianne has a lovely piece of work in progress. Can’t wait to see the finished piece.

As well as celebrating a very special birthday with some cake

Brenda had time to show a quilt that she has recently completed, which will be donated to Project Linus.

Brenda emailed to say It was a lovely day yesterday at Cutting Edge and I was really taken aback by the greetings, cake, and all the attention. What a lovely group of ladies we have.

And, whilst all this was going on Jan was quietly getting on with their hand quilting! A Sandie Lush project that she intends to hang on her wall when it is complete

Though Monica was absent because she was on holiday she had made some Cutting Edge bunting during the holidays. You can just see it in the background of the photos. We mustn’t forget to take it down after our meetings!!!

What a great day – looking forward to many more in the future!
