This month at Glamorgan Quilters we were pleased to welcome Maryke Phillips from BatiksnBeads. And, as well as bringing a colourful display of batik fabrics and beads she entertained us with a lively talk about her quilting life. This included showing some of her work, which was stunning

As well as enjoying Maryke’s company members also had the opportunity to learn how to make pleated squares. Many thanks to GQ Wendy Floyd for sharing her knowledge and skills.
