Patchwork Bumper "Show & Tell" April 6th

An excellent array of makes for this week's meeting from our members for Show & Tell.
Pat Mc  made this classy, small, quilt top which will become a lovely lap quilt for a friend.
Congratulations to Caroline who finished her very first quilt for her grandson.
A super result and she received a well deserved round of applause.

Mo sandwiched this top which she made years ago.
A pretty big one in lovely applique and too nice to sit unfinished.

Some interesting panels to see.
Jo finally finished her French braid, "quilt as you go" quilt made from the Jelly Roll she won last year.
This table runner was also finally finished by Jo after the top was made 2 years ago.
It's the Scrap Buster Runner from Missouri Star Quilt Co and there is an excellent video tutorial on the MSQC web site.
Many hands make light work as a group sandwich Joan's first Cath Kidston style fabric quilt.
Happily the makes are still coming in for the sales table of our May event.Thanks to all the members who have contributed.
Brenda made another dainty apron.

Veronica practised her quilting skills and showed us a ruler bag she made from the results.

She also made a handy pouch
and several of these fold up shopping bags

Val made this super colony of frogs, above. They are sand filled stress busters and are great for adults to play with. A collection of frogs is called a colony, an army or a knot! Maybe this gang should be called a knot the way they are sitting together.

Debbie, Marg M and Josie made these stylish gorgeous "GELS" all ready to galavant. 
They got together for a day to make them and the dolls are are all such fun.

Jo made some dangly, shawl style, scarves from Liberty fabric.

Early this year there was a radio appeal for BBC Radio Merseyside listeners to make fabric, paper, knitted or crochet poppies to create an installation after the "Weeping Window" poppies outside St George's Hall moved to their next location. Our group responded and made quite a few and, along with other people in and around Liverpool, the collection was put together to create this striking display. 
It is now on show in the Royal British Legion drop in centre in Williamson Street (off Church Street), right in the heart of Liverpool City Centre, in tribute to the service given by so many during WW1.
We are pleased and honoured to be a part of it.

It's hard to spot the particular ones we made but I do remember that the one with beads in the centre in the close up picture (below) was made by one of our very own members.... Brenda!!
