 Newsletter     Meeting Thursday 17th. April

 

We had a veritable forest of trees and associated pieced blocks for the second of our quilt blocks, such imagination. We were pleased to see so many enjoying the challenge.

 

Our third block was foundation piecing – a new challenge for many – in the form of leaves. Bring your leaves along for our show and tell special, showcasing our quilt blocks.

 

This month the demonstration will be Sunbonnet Sue for the block to the left of the central log cabin – size 12.5" x 20" finished size, plus ¼"seam allowance all round. This is an appliqué block and the demonstration will use Bondaweb. We will have sheets of Bondaweb for sale (£1).

 

We will also be showing you ideas for the next block (for May) which will be English piecing –– it fits below Sunbonnet Sue.

 

We introduced quilt as you go last month for those who want to use this method. Notes are in the quilt 2014 folder (together with the previous block notes and brief history of the blocks) for easy reference, or ask if you need help.

 

The library – is in the Garden Room so you will have more room to browse. There are so many inspiring books, do have a look. You can borrow 2 books at a time, just sign them out and back in on return.

 

Irons and ironing boards

We have refurbished the ironing boards. We are going to put out baking parchment to use with the ironing boards to safeguard the boards and the irons in future. Please use it, especially when using Bodaweb or equivalent.
