Quilt Cornerstone Latest Makes

Each meeting, after we've enjoyed a chat, a cuppa, and discussed the necessaries, we "Show & Tell" the work in progress or items we have completed. It is an inspiring part of our meetings which sometimes is a little daunting when we see the quality pieces produced by our members, but there is joy in sharing and always so much encouragement if anyone wants to learn any of the techniques shown.

Josie has made all the blocks for her bright modern Kaffe Fassett quilt.... Anyone for tea?
Now for the job of stitching all around those super teapots.
I must split on Josie's dilemma but she almost had a disaster when she ironed on her Bondaweb then realised that she had adhered it to the front of all the teapots instead of to the back! All frantic attempts to remove it were in vain. Catastrophe!.....
 but .........Luckily she had enough fabric left to cut out the pieces again, so all was not lost.
Veronica is a fairly new member to the group and jumped in the deep end to make this Celtic Braid table runner. 
Well done to her for achieving such a good result.
Now for the wadding, backing and quilting.
Marg M arrived loaded with two fabulous huge quilts.
The quirky blue stars are so effective.
Close up to see the super fabrics.
The next one is a mixed colour quilt on a nautical theme. It's not "I saw 3 ships come sailing in" but "I saw 30 ships come sailing in".
Great result, Marg!
Great work and a lovely mix of bright colours.
More to show over the next few days as the group has been extra busy.

We are now able to offer a couple of 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 and we'll get back to you with 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. We also make smaller items such as bags, hangings, seasonal decorations, and as well as our quilting sessions we organise days out to shows and places of interest. 
Come along and find out what goes on, just pop into the Millennium Centre (attached to St Mary's church in West Derby Village), where we meet on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month, from 10am until 3pm.
