Classy Waistcoat, Bag & Star Quilt

Quite a change to see something other than quilts at our meeting and Mo showed us this smart, classy waistcoat she made for her husband. 
She also made a Dicky Bow to match from the lining fabric.
Mo loves to make bags and here is another of her gems. A handy portmanteau.
Marg M finished her beautiful big Star Quilt in blues and greys. Marg has done so well this month finishing quite a few lovely quilts.
Another to start off the Christmas mood....
Jo made an Attic Window Quilt after seeing the video on Missouri Star Quilt Co.
Quite an easy one to make especially with the good video provided by MSQC.

There are so many more excellent video instructions on their site.

Well done to everyone this month.
As a group we've had a successful and productive month with so many excellent makes from our members. 
We have also welcomed four new ladies.... Joan, Caroline, Debbie and Trish. We are pleased to have them join us and they have all fitted in so well and are already making their first items.
We enjoyed a trip to the quilt show at Malvern and all had a great day out with lots of inspiration and plenty of treats to bring home. We also visited a good exhibition in All Saints Church, Hoole, after which we went into Chester for a visit to Liberty Bell shop and an Italian meal in the Trattoria on Bridge Street

Advent Calendar & Bird Quilt

We are getting a little seasonal with Cilla's fabulous Advent snowman. 
She'd love to make more but cannot find another panel.
Cilla also made this manger scene which is so cute and such a good way to teach children about the real meaning of the Christmas story.
Pat B made this striking, modern, bird quilt from fabric bought in IKEA.
 Pat made really effective use of the images mixing them with the perfect range of toning fabrics in a wonderful colour palette.
Some house blocks towards a row in a strip quilt.
This Tumbling Blocks Shopper, by Pat Mc, will come in so handy now we don't get bags in the supermarkets.
