Quilt Happy

14 May

Today was another busy day at GQ HQ with members busy on projects and learning new skills. GQ member Wendy Floyd continued demonstrating how to make pleated squares. It surely can’t be long before we see a cushion or a quilt as a result?

As ever there was lots of work in progress. Jayne brought in one of 4 panels of painted witches that she is stitching.

The group also welcomed Nick Thornton from the Vale Photography Society who gave a very interesting talk and practical demonstration on how to take a good photo of your quilt.

It was great to see members getting involved and a treat to see some beautiful work.
