Sew Hot But Sew Lovely!

Yesterdays Cutting Edge session was the last one before the summer break and what a showstopper it was!

Hillary and Stephanie brought their work which will be hung in the Tapestri cafe exhibition

Pat brought a quilt that she had recently completed for her daughter who lives on a farm. She had been to J&B Sewing in Cardiff to long arm quilt it.

Jaci had been working on a challenge with four friends for quite a while. A brilliant idea and stunning results!

Jan showed work that her friend – who has recently passed away- had done. Jan taught her friend how to spin

Caroline was busy stringing fish together and making batik elephants to applique onto a quilt. The fish are made from fabric that Caroline dyed at Dyeing to Paint

Fiona showed a lovely cushion that she has recently completed – all machine quilted

Pat had been to a Susan Briscoe workshop and completed this beautiful little piece of work

Monica showed the crazy patchwork that she completed a while ago. It was supposed to be a needlecase but in Monica’s view is much more practical as a book cover!

And Sylvana was busy finishing off a quilt top

Amanda and Glynis had been busy making baby and children’s clothes that looked delightful

Lesley – Anne put out a call for hand made craft items for a Project Linus fundraising sale that is being held later in the year – these are few items that have already been donated

There is always fantastic camaraderie amongst members and it was lovely to see individuals helping out with various challenges that arose on current projects

Finally, we would like to congratulate Jeannie Duncan Farr, Pat Hixon and Helen Morgan who all have quilts featured in exhibitions…

Helen has a quilt being exhibited at a quilt show in Oregan, USA

Jeannie Duncan Farr and Pat Hixon have quilts being exhibited at the NEC Festival of Stitch

One of Jeannie’s quilts is also being featured in the Quilter’s Guild 2019 calendar!

Time for a short break. We resume in September and look forward to seeing more fabulous work from our members

Happy sewing!
