January quilting bee

The snow and ice made it unsafe for a lot of people to travel to the January meeting and so the slideshow and talk by Naomh Muire Quilters will be postponed until the February meeting.

In the meantime we made a start on assembling the raffle quilt using the recent challenge blocks.

First the blocks were laid out on the floor. A further two blocks will be made into matching cushions.

Toni got to work pressing seams as neutral sashing was added between each block.

Mari was busy cutting sashing strips.

Margaret got to work stitching.

Mary, Joan and Colette trimmed each block to 12.5 inches.
