August Gatherings....

Both the day and night gatherings of Kilmore Quilters may have been small in number, but oh boy, the work and talent of the members is second to none!  Lots of variety and lots of show'n'tell happened this month.

Drum roll please.........

C has started her "Rotherfields" Greys quilt.  
The central medallion is appliqued to your and will finish at 20in square.  
Then there are many, borders to add.  This is the beginning of a masterpiece.

R pulled an UFO out of her cupboard.  
It has appliqued and pieced panels which are joined together using the Quilt As You Go method.

C continued on with knitting.  A shawl. 

M is continuing her hand pieced quilt.  Can't wait to see this one finished. 

The other R is knitting an "all in one" jacket.  
Knitted in one piece, including the sleeves.  
We are all eager to see how this turns out and are liking the idea of it.

J is continuing on with her La Pasacalgia quilt.  It is growing :). 

W at the night gathering is appliqueing a central medallion.   

These lovely prepared hexagons and very organised holder belong to the quilt below the photo. 
How gorgeous is this?  As you can see by the reel of thread in the case, the hexagons are quite small. 

L is continuing her "1718 Coverlet" quilt blocks. 

J is also paper piecing hexagons. 


K is making a table runner using the Japanese technique of Boro.

A trip around the world being made with EPP.

B is making a quilt for a doll cot. 

More EPP in progress.

The other L is following a quilt-a-long using the "Perpetually Hexie" calendar. 

W at the day gathering is appliqueing Liberty fabrics to make a cushion cover. 

V is making a stunning design using a variation of drunkards path and pinwheels. 

Then, for the finale this month - the other J has completed this quilt for one of her family members.  Unfortunately the photo doesn't show the intricate piecing which went into the narrow curved border.  We were all spellbound by the perfect piecing and overall stunning effect.
