First Meeting of 2107

What a creditworthy start to 2017 by our members who produced so much after the Christmas and New Year holidays. 
Josie started us all off with a demo and showed us how to make the "Rob Peter to Pay Paul" block that we will all make towards the group quilt for our July exhibition. 
First we started with scrap fabric and we made sample blocks to learn and perfect the pattern before we moved on to use the special fabric to make the show quilt.
Hopefully all the samples will go towards making cushions for the raffle.

Lorna had started hexagons for a new project.
Maria arrived with two lovely raffle cushions inspired by a recent donation of buttons.
She also made a handy microwave bowl holder.
Brenda is taking her time and enjoying making two sets of reindeer and Santa's sleigh for next Christmas. Great detail  and they will be so effective.

Lovely to see Kathy back amongst looking good us after her recent operation and she was also working ahead to finish another Christmas mantle drape.

Josie had started making some handy towel hangers for the sales table at our July show....
Keep up all the good work everyone and we will have an excellent display to our credit for our show in July.
