Julia’s Quilts and Pot Holders!

21 Apr

It was a busy meeting this month and members worked hard making pot holders for the Quilters Guild Region 12 Tombola at the Festival of Quilts in August.

Julia gave us a fascinating talk with examples, about her life of quilting. From the 1980s to present day we were treated to a wide variety of colours, colour combinations and patterns, from UK via USA to Wales. Quilts made with Glamorgan Quilters, Bridgend Quilters, Julia’s classes, workshops she attended…. Lots of memories for lots of us, including her chairing of Glamorgan Quilters. Not just quilts either, table runners, wall hangings, cushions, bags, waistcoats, aprons. Quilting with new fabric, men’s ties shirts. What a talented member we have in Julia. Thank you Julia for an entertaining and inspiring talk.
