Today a lively group of us returned after our 3 month Christmas break (from get togethers) to sew up a storm, meeting at The Quilters Store Salisbury, our usual venue (thank you Karen!) to begin our 2014 get togethers. Special mention to Jan who came along today – so nice to meet you!
Remember these from the last blog post & November break up meeting?
Well today was D-day to return the “ugly” FQ eight of us swapped with each other, having made it into something (ahem, Shaaryn haha)to be gifted today. Well what a variety of outcomes were achieved and I think I safely say that everyone was happy with what they got in our final product swap today. I know I was absolutely delighted to get the beautiful bag duo Julie made & lined with oil cloth. Ok, so one of us may not have completely grasped the concept to actually finish the project (a laughing point for most of the meeting, you’re a good sport Shaaryn) – submitting a …….mini panel I think it’s called? We laughed, because the thought was there and as you can see, Kayt could see potential in the gift she received much to our amusement.A possible future head piece? Maybe even a future fancy coaster? !
A few of the girls that came along today weren’t in the November swap & were nominated as the judges. The ‘winner’ with the best use of the UGLY FQ ………..is………
Kayt (above right) who made an insulated lunch bag with magazine pocket on the back of it – a must for every quilter. Margaret F was the lucky one to draw clever Kayt’s creation. Congratulations Kayt!
You’ll notice 2 projects missing? Anne was away today, her creation goes to Helen on her return and Margaret F had a senior moment (it’s ok, I have them frequently to!) so when she does remember to bring it along, it will go to Anne. So the swap will be completed in full with photo’s in March. Stay tuned for the March post….
There was some show and tell today to. Julie had some holiday time at home (only a couple of days can you believe it?!) around Christmas time and produced these beauties
