It was all hands on deck yesterday at Cutting Edge to make poppies for the forthcoming display of the WW1 challenge quilts in Cowbridge shop windows (Beauty Within, The Barbers Cowbridge, Costa Coffee, Ty Hafan Emporium, David Barnes Dry Cleaners). A BIG thank you to all those who gave their time – your support was very much appreciated and you will be pleased to know we have loads of felt poppies!
Yesterday was also the day that the completed WW1 challenge quilts were handed in – a wonderful collection – those involved have done us proud!
Below are a small selection of the quilts that have been submitted. Photos of all the quilts that have been completed so far (and we look forward to more) are posted on our dedicated WW1 page.
Now that it is evident that members are up for a challenge Monica wondered whether they would like to take up the challenge of making something out of a bag of 1 inch squares – a bit of a bridge too far maybe???
In addition to the above we had lots of news to share and many pieces of work to show.
Jeannie Duncan Farr brought in a beautiful whole cloth quilt that she has recently completed.
Some members had brought in the denim bags they had started to make at a workshop on Saturday and Jan Webster had finished hers – beautiful embroidery – what a stunnng pair of jeans they must have been.
Dianne showed some amazing knitted articles that she had made.
Fiona had made a lovely purse and fabric basket. The purse was made with hand printed fabric
And, Gilly and Jan showed pieces of work that they had done at Deborah O’Hare‘s moongazing hare workshop.
Gilly had also finished a small quilt made with Janet Clare fabric
Hilary invited memebrs to take a look at a memory book that she made for her sister
And Monica brought along a landscape picture that she had completed
A busy but enjoyable day – looking forward to next month already!
