Patchwork and Quilting (No 1) – February & March meetings

We are now cracking on nicely with our project, where we are concentrating on accuracy and, even though there has been some gnashing of teeth because a block isn’t quite spot-on, the results are lovely!  We will be re-visiting English paper-piecing for a couple of the blocks before we shift onto foundation piecing.

We have also welcomed three new members to the group so far this year and really hope they get as much enjoyment from this beautiful craft as we do.  Edith continues to produce some stunning work and one of her last pieces – doggy themed – has been donated to Guide Dogs who are very keen to raffle it to raise funds for their guide dogs’ training and upkeep.  Someone, somewhere will have a beautiful item for just the price of a raffle ticket!  Lesley Sinclair.
