To celebrate all our birthdays we decided to hire a village hall and sew together and eat a shared lunch. We all worried about not bringing enough so ended up with quite a lot. It was lovely to have so much space and I hung up an older quilt with a calico back to act as a show and tell back drop.
So I shall take a brief break from Dragonflies to show and tell.
Judi has been hugely busy using blocks from an American friend to make a Civil War influenced quilt, bow ties in similar colours for a house she visits in the US, a pretty child's quilt with variable block frames and piece de resistance a wonderful batik quilt for a friend. We all admired the combination of high and low contrast blocks and everywhere J's expert quilting.
