February: Show and Tell

Sandlin explained how she solved the problem of not having enough denim for the back of her quilt by inserting a panel with the baby's birthday. Her quilting thread is in a golden colour to look like the stitching on denim-jeans.

And here is the front of the quilt again (the letters are applied using the technique from "Snuggle and Learn Quilts" by Chris Lynn Kirsch who visited Galway with a group of US quilters in October and donated her book to our library.

Mogs brought along this quilt she has been making with the Headford Active Retirement group. This is all hand-pieced, folded patchwork 'Cathedral Windows'.

The 3 postcards shown above are made by Margaret. Are you making some of these 6 x 4 fabric postcards to be posted in time for the National 'Branching Out' exhibition?

Madeleine showed this beautiful quilt she has completed.

Colette brought along her 'Snakes and Ladders' quilt to show the Western Branch.

Anne Marie is working on these colourful children's quilts at the moment.
