Mendelssohn Moments!

20 Feb

This month Honorary Life member of GQ, Judi Mendelssohn, brought a roadshow of quilts and anecdotes and kept us in “stitches” during her talk on a lifetime of Patchwork and Quilting. It was lovely to catch up with her after she moved away and went on her travels.

Feast your eyes on this gallery of beautiful quilts!

Judi designed this stunning “Lego” quilt for her 3 sons.

A wonderful display and a very enjoyable afternoon.

Strippy Briads Workshop.

Then the following day Judi ran a workshop which some of the group attended, involving making a series of five different braids. The instructions were very good and this enabled everyone to end the day with samples of all the braids.
