U3A Patchwork Group
All four of the small scale patchwork groups I belong to are meeting this week. This morning it was the U3A beginners' class which Margaret is teaching. As well as quilts she embroiders and makes teddy bears which are shown here. Top teddy isn't striped but made of chenille and I wanted to take him home! The teddy display was prompted by Jessie's request for ideas on how to make a 3-D mouse. Jessie is shown here with her first effort, a wholecloth quilted cushion. As I had helped with this I was very pleased with the completed effort. I had suggested marking with children's felt tips and was relieved they completely washed out!
