A Glorious Spring Day Sewing

Today was a glorious spring day outside and a sunny and cheery day inside with the Cutting Edge group!

As ever, it was busy with lots of work in progress and a huge variety of finished products.

Following ‘Morning Prayers’ members showed off some of their completed works…..

In addition to the above activity Jeannie did a demonstration to show how she binds a quilt and mitres the corners which was very well received.

The table runner that she used to demonstrate is also the piece that she is going to use when she runs a workshop for group members on 3 June. Jeannie is our colour queen!

Hilary also gave a deomstration of the stitched cards and how to make envelopes.

After seeing some beautiful small quilts at Olympia Knit and Stitch show and a visit to the Fashion on the Ration exhibiton at the Imperial War Museum Monica and Hilary threw out a challenge to members to create a quilt of their own to commemorate the First World War. Poppy buttons purchased from the show were offered to those wanting to take part.

Finally, we also celebrated three birthdays – many happy returns to Fran, Irene and Sylvana.

    What a wonderful array of beautiful handcrafted items – if they were for sale they would surely fetch amazing prices but of course they are priceless as they are all one of a kind – unique
    Great inspiration ladies
