A Busy Autumn Day

6 Oct

Last Saturday was a busy day for Glamorgan Quilters. As well an eagerness to get on with all things quilting members were asked to make a decoration for the Christmas tree that will be on display in the Holy Cross Church in Cowbridge.

Monica and Isobelle were busy completing decorations made from cotton bobbins.

Around 26 of the little men have now been completed.

Enid was busy trying to work out how to make a Christmas star from the pack she had been given – though she looks a little bewildered!

There was a lot of work in progress, and hexagons seem to be the flavour of the month.

Dilys is working on a sunny hexagon design.

???????????????????????????????

Jeannie is blending greens splendidly!

???????????????????????????????

And there is a lovely pastel quilt in the making.

???????????????????????????????

A number of new members were welcomed to the group and Catherine brought along a very pretty sunny flower that she has been working on.

???????????????????????????????

And, there was even Japanese folded patchwork to admire.

Jeannie, who is prolific at making quilts, showed the group two that she has recently completed.

Next month the group wil be able to sit back and enjoy a talk on Laura Ashley by Ann Rippon.

    Hello Glamorgan Quilters – what a busy group we are and so productive. If love was quilts, we’d have wrapped the whole world by now! xxx
