 Newsletter        Meeting Thursday 15th. May


We had another inspiring show of leaves and foundation piecing for our third block. How busy everyone has been and so creative. Bring your Sunbonnet Sue/applique blocks for Show and Tell.


This month the demonstration will be English piecing for the block below Sunbonnet Sue. The block is 16.5” x 12.5” finished size. There will be the usual demonstration and plenty of ideas to start you off. We will have cardboard and tracing paper so that you can make your templates during the meeting.

This is our 5th. block so we will be half way through our blocks, time flies when you are having fun!


We will also be showing you ideas for the next block (for June) which will be trapunto –– it fits below the English piecing at the bottom of the quilt..


Show and Tell

We had a bumper Show and Tell last month with some amazing quilts, bags etc. Sue’s reversible quilt drew gasps of appreciation from everyone. It is so inspiring to see what you are making so keep bringing in your work, it deserves to be shared.


The library – we are putting this back in the main hall. There are some very interesting books so do have a look and borrow some. Jan is going to mark the ones with references to English piecing, our block this month.
