Flashback - Omitted to post this in November

I found this post loitering as a draft - I thought I had lost it.
Joy's Convergence meets Gail Lawther's silhouettes. Seen at the Oast UFO day
Still on the subject of convergence, I must show Joy's piece which was a larger version combined with motifs from a recent Gail Lawther workshop.
My "Babes in the Wood" quilt.

On Remembrance Day the local residents association held an arts and crafts display in St Stephen's Hall to showcase the work of local residents. There were photos, hand printed silk scarves, paintings and work from a quilting group I displayed a seasonal quilt straight off my bed and onto a quilt stand.
I think this is Marion's work and the result of
another recent Guild workshop, "Little People"..
Seen on the local quilt group table.
Another recent event was a Quilters' Guild 12 Days of Christmas workshop with Maggie Kingston. which everyone enjoyed. They got all 12 patterns included in the price of the work shop.
Last Friday Maggie and I  got together with Tracy in attendance to make Ruth McDowall's petals quilt from a very early book of hers.  It is quite complicated and two heads proved better than one. Independently we've chosen similar fabrics though Maggie has gone for check backgrounds too. Once you get the methodology sorted the results are very different and pleasing. I am freezer paper piecing.

Tracy had received an early Christmas
present from Zoe in New Zealand.

Maggie completed four sections to make a single flower
