    Meeting Thursday 16th.June 2016

This month Joan and Jacky will be introducing the challenge for the tenth year of 

Loddon Quilters. Yes it really will be the beginning of our tenth year in September – 

doesn’t time fly when you are having fun!

We had an amazing show and tell – as usual. We were full of admiration for the Dear Jane quilt, 

so many small blocks, and so many little pieces. We look forward to seeing it when it has been 

quilted. Thank you to everyone who contributes to show and tell, it is such an inspiration. Photos 

are put on the website so you can go and browse when you have a spare minute.

Last month Barbara demonstrated 3 versions of the attic window block and a simple tote bag. 

If you have tried an attic window block, but don’t want to use it yourself, you can donate it and 

we will put it in a Linus quilt. Help yourself to ‘bits’ from the scrappy box. We shall display our 

Linus quilts at our show next year, so let’s see how many we can make! If you have made a block 

and/or a bag do bring it along to the meeting. Thanks to Ann and John for sharing their attic 

We were pleased to see some of the iron caddies that had been made following last month’s 

demonstration. We keep a folder of workshop notes so if you miss something you can check it 

out in the file or on the website – see Joan.

Chris continued her machine quilting demonstrations, with 2 more enthusiastic groups. 

This is a demonstration for you to see how to set about machine quilting, then you can go home 

and practise. See Chris if you didn’t put your name down/missed your slot but would like to join 

If you know of any shows taking place in the area, any good quilt shops or websites do let us 

know and we can share them through the newsletter.

There are free patterns for making bags and quilts on this website

There will be no library this month, so if you have a book keep it for another month.
