Patchwork & Quilting (No 1) – September meetings

We had a relatively quiet month in September, just getting on with our own projects and sorting out our lovely offerings for our stand at the Open Morning next month.  We did have a welcome visit from our patchwork and quilting friend Jenny, who brought along lots of fabrics to sell after retiring earlier this year.  These fabrics are left-over stock from her patchwork studio and we all enjoyed ourselves picking up lots of bargains from her!  In October we are having a decorative binding workshop with Chris and we will be preparing for another of her eternally popular free-motion quilting workshops in November.  We are having a day out to the very last quilt show of the year, held in the Imperial War Museum at Duxford, at the end of October, and a must-see there is an exhibition by Stephanie Crawford, maker of one of my favourite pieces of work, a Chinese Triptych, category winner at the Festival of Quilts 2013 (shown below).  Lesley Sinclair.
