Spring has almost sprung......

Well at least the plum trees think spring is almost here ..... most of them have started to blossom here in the valley where I'm writing this blog.  But it just doesn't feel like spring quite yet.  On most mornings and especially in the evenings it is still bitterly cold in our corner of the world.

However, that has not stopped our enthusiasm and our quest to churn out our quilts.

The quilt show is not far off now, our members are busy creating bits and bobs for the trade table,finishing off quilts ready for display and hopefully working on our challenge entries.

These gorgeous dolls will be available at our Trade Table if you are quick.  As will these Pedal Mats.

August was a quiet month however, a small group of ladies took on a workshop to learn Gillian Marshall's method for foundation piecing taught by Maureen from Rochester's Quilting Patch.

This class challenged a few of the ladies in choosing colours and using more fabric than they desired.  But all in all they thoroughly enjoyed the class.

There was plenty of show and tell, with a great turnout to both the evening and the day gatherings.    Some of the ladies have started their La Pascaglia quilts, while others were nearing the end of their Nearly Insane journey.

We were also shown some completed UFO's and some great progress made on stitcheries.
