Another Lively Day

As ever there was no shortage of enthusiasm at the April Cutting Edge meeting. Everyone was very industrious and engrossed in various projects.

Gilly and Pat showed hand quilted projects that they had recently completed. Pat did hers whilst flying to Australia.

Hexagons seem to be in vogue at the moment. Dilys and Jeannie were busy working on quilts that they are making.

As well as having been busy with her new Scan and Cut machine, and making a cover for it Jan showed everyone a lovely quilt that she had made. Below is a small section of it.

And Julia was just finishing the binding on a beautiful quilt that she has made from batik fabrics.

Pat was asking members for advice on what she should back her hexagon quilt with.

Members who were at the fairy shoe workshop brought along the little shoes that they had made to show to the rest of the group.

Discussion took place about the World War 1 commemorative quilt and Catherine showed the one that she is submitting. No pressure on the rest of the group to get going!

In the afternoon some members had a go at bonding foils, glitter and sequins onto velvet and it didn’t take long before they were hooked! Some lovely pieces were produced. No excuse now for not practising the free machine embroidery on them.
