As part of the Western Branch Exhibition in the Galway City Museum Toni Foley, Mary McDonnell and Anne Marie Horan gave two workshops to members of the public on Saturday 22nd May.
It was decided to teach the basic building blocks of a four-patch and a half-square triangle. By adding a border everyone went away with a 14"square piece.
All pieces were pre-cut and it wasn't long before everyone was sewing 1/4 inch seams. The photo shows the finished pieces of Maire, Marie, Pauline and Angela.
The workshop stimulated a lot of interest in the participants and also in visitors to the exhibition who were walking through the Gallery.
Thanks to Breandan and all the Museum staff for their help and here's hoping the Western Branch gets some new members in September!
