Christmas Panel and Easy Wreaths Workshop

Last meeting we all enjoyed a fabulous seasonal workshop with our visiting tutor, Maureen. As previously with Maureen, it was a great day and everyone was able to learn new skills and make good head start with the two projects.
Members selected various colour ways for their trees so it will be interesting to see all the different finished panels.
No doubt we will be seeing the finished projects at our next meeting and here's Maureen's panel .
We also learned how to make simple Christmas wreaths using 5 inch scrap squares, sewn in half, turned inside out and stuffed. Next 40 were then tied on to a wire circlet with raffia. So simple and easy. 

We made good headway in class but I finished mine at home the same evening....
Maria brought in this lovely table centre she had made to show us all.
She had also made two fabulous padded Christmas trees 
Don't forget that West Kirby Quilters are celebrating their 20 year anniversary with an extra special Quilt Show at Westbourne Hall, Westbourne Hall, West Kirby, Wirral, Cheshire on Fri 11th (12 to 5pm) and Sat 12th Nov (10am to 4pm) this week. POST CODE CH484DQ
Pop along if you can and our tutor Maureen will be there exhibiting.
