The February meeting saw members arriving with wonderful blocks for the group heritage quilt we are working on to donate to the Galway City Museum. Sandlin's block was inspired by the intricate tile patterns in the Galway cathedral.
The Tuam group are still working on the embellishment of the Tuam High Cross, but as we see here, it is looking pretty good already!
Sally also completed a block celebrating Galway's hurlers.
The Western Branch of the Irish Patchwork Society meets on the second Saturday of every month from Sep. to May in The Bridge Centre, St. Mary's Road, Galway at 10am.
Membership costs 40Euro a year and allows you to attend meetings anywhere in Ireland, exhibit with the group, participate in classes and workshops, borrow from the library, receive a quarterly national newsletter.....all that and make lots of new friends who share a common interest!
