Quilt Cornerstone 1st Post

Quilt Cornerstone 
We are a lively bunch of enthusiastic quilters who meet twice a month in a village of Liverpool and we hope that we can encourage and inspire people to start patchwork and quilting and record all our creative endeavours.

For the first post of our new blog, here are some photos of a typical meeting showing the variety of crafting that goes on amongst our members, who travel far and wide to share our mutual passion of quilting. 
As a group we also attend shows and exhibitions and have special days out to interesting places, always with lunch and lots of laughter and chat.

Brenda comes via public transport from near to Southport and, 
some time ago, she made this cute panel for a little member of her family and, as often happens, other members were inspired to have a go.
 Brenda shared the pattern with Josephine who wanted to learn appliqué and as you can see, she did so well for her first attempt by making her hanging. 
Well bunnies do multiply! Great results!
 Pat B was hand stitching some appliqué, beautifully. I wonder what it will be?
 Sue finished her block of the month, (the blue Dresden Plate) then continued to prepare the Cathedral Window base pieces for her next hand stitched quilt, which she will use as a travel project.
 Cilla worked on neatly hand stitched appliqué panels. Can't wait to see her finished quilt.
Chris travels from Warrington and here today she is hand quilting a pretty flower fairy panel quilt for one of her little grandchildren.
Jo bought some Kaffe Fassett fabric in John Lewis's sale (at half price and it's still on offer) and is making a couple of bright octagonal cushions.
We have such a variety of our handiwork to show with quilts big and small, hangings, cushions, bags etc., so please pop back for another visit to see how our new blog progresses and it would be so nice if you left a comment too.
