February Fabric Fun!

15 Feb

Red House Quilting came from Mumbles to bring their fabric shop to us this month. Members and visitors enjoyed browsing the array of haberdashery and fabrics on offer.

There was also help on offer to choose matching fabrics for some of Vanessa’s blocks!

Show and Tell!

What a talented group we are and such a lot of variety.

Marie’s Block of the Month on the left from Pretty Fabrics and Trims.
Chris and Kath have been busy with their group.
Chris made this amazing bag complete with ironing mat!
Pat had been very busy making bags and iPad cases for a sale of work.
Catherine has been prolific as usual! How does she do it?
Jeannie’s quilt is made with fat quarters.
Salinder user 1930’s fabric on the left and a jelly roll on the right.
Salinder Keris and Corinne were inspired by a visit from Maryke Phillips of Batiks and Beads in April 2016. They spoke to Maryke and she was happy for them to make a wall hanging in her style so after quite a lot of planning, nearly 3 years later, here are the results!
Jane made these wonderful Halloween Quilts.

Anne had worked on the bag kit from Monkey Buttons and then made a quilt using the same block pattern.
Julia is on a mission to use up stash. What a good idea!

Elaine’s stunning Sunflower cushion cover made at a workshop.
And Myra made this very pretty cot Quilt!
And last but not least Marie showed this beautiful tablet case,

Next month we meet in Bonvilston Reading Rooms with speaker Joan Weston of the Ad Hoc Art Company.
