A Busy Day Sewing and Chatting

Yet another lovely day at Cutting Edge this month.

As ever there were lots of projects underway which we look forward to seeing completed in the coming months.

Brenda showed the group a hexagon quilt that she is making

And then showed a whole cloth quilt that she had recently completed

Pat was also busy getting her whole cloth quilt completed

and was interested in the quilt that Jeannie was putting together – which seemed very intricate. Knowing how quickly Jeannie works it probably won’t be too long before we see the finished quilt!

Liz had made a cover for her sewing machine – very smart!

Carol was busy making blocks – apparently she has to make 25! Love the Janet Clare fabric.

Kira was busy experimenting with fabric landscapes

Hexagons are obviously popular because Sue was also busy making a hexagon quilt

We had some fabric flowers on the table that Hilary had made. Following the interest from group members to make similar ones we have booked the hall for Tuesday 7 June.

Monica was very grateful to Liz, Corinne and Keris for helping baste her New Zealand quilt together. No excuse now for not getting on with the quilting!

Whilst there was lots of concentration and focus on various pieces of works it is always lovley to see that there is time for chatter amongst friends

Sadly this month we said our farewells to Catherine Pritchard who has moved to Malvern. She will be missed by many of us but Malvern isn’t that far away and we have invited ourselves for afetrnoon tea at her house already! Wishing you all the very best Catherine and good luck at Malvern Quilters
