Quilt for Breast Cancer & Handstitching

Each month we set a "Block of the Month" for the group to make and one of the members selects a block design, and the colours to be used, then demonstrates how to make it. 
This month it was Pat Mc's turn and she has shown us how to paper piece this house block. Once all the blocks are in, she has decided to make a very special quilt to support a Breast Cancer Charity. 
We were each given pieces of special fabric printed with poignant words, (as can be seen in this close up) to make all the doors and windows suitably pink.

Irene, one of our new members who comes to join us from Widnes, is working away hand quilting these pretty blocks which will make a super quilt. 
Great design and fabrics too. 
A huge welcome to Irene, who fitted into the group so well as soon as she arrived and we are so pleased she intends to stay!

Marj is so patiently working on these lovely, traditional, hand stitched blocks. They will make a wonderful, all white, heirloom quilt. 

Keep popping in as we have lots more to "Show & Tell" from this last group meeting.

Interested in joining us?
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skills, fun and friendship, in a pleasant spacious environment, please leave a comment with contact info (which will not be published) and we will get back to you with full details.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.
