Golden Wedding Quilt & Bags

The group enjoyed another session today and so many items had been made, started or finished by our talented members. 

There'll be several posts over the next few days showcasing all that's going on.

First here's a Golden Wedding Quilt that Cilla is making for a member of her family for this very special occasion. 
It is a stunning, king size quilt that was only started just after Christmas and, considering the motifs have been appliquéd by hand, it's well on the way to completion for the special day in a couple of weeks.  

Today it was sandwiched, pinned and basted, ready for binding.
Everyone loved the attractive, rustic, colour scheme that Cilla chose and planned so well.

We have started a raffle, for a bit of fun at each meeting, to help our group funds, and Cilla was lucky to win the gorgeous Rowan fabric below as the prize for very first one. One day, no doubt, we'll see this made into something wonderful in a post here! 
Mo showed us this fabulous holdall with a name tag to co-ordinate with the inside fabric. Beautifully made with lots of detail.
Today Mo was working on a finely detailed, embroidered bag in various quality tweed fabrics. A work of art and we are all looking forward to seeing the finished result.
Jo was sent a gift of charm squares by a friend in Cornwall and made this cot sized quilt.

Pop back soon for more Show & Tell pictures.

Group Membership
Due to a couple of our members having to leave us through health reasons, we are now able to offer their places in the group.
 If anyone can manage to get to Liverpool for two Wednesdays a month and would like to share quilting skills, fun and friendship, in a pleasant spacious environment, please leave a comment with contact info (which will not be published) and we will get back to you with full details. We are a mixed level of skills, styles, and interests and beginners are welcome but, please note that,  whilst we have occasional workshops, we do not have regular formal teaching sessions. As you can see on this blog, we also make smaller items such as bags, hangings, seasonal decorations and, each month we set a block challenge. As well as our quilting sessions we organise days out to shows and places of interest.
