October's meeting

Just a quick post about last night's meeting. First of all thanks so much to Audrey for taking the minutes (unfortunately Jane couldn't make it) and all the photos here.

We spent a while discussing the charity quilt project and looking at the fabric that had arrived (plus some pieces from member's stash).

We decided to have 2 separate evenings to get to work on the quilt, Tuesday 4th November and Friday 14th November. This way hopefully everyone can make at least one of the evenings and if we split in to 2 groups there will be enough room in the studio for working. So can you please email me to let me know which date you can do or if you can do both dates. I will then produce a rota and let you all know which date to come. Fortunately our November meeting will be between the 2 evenings so we can discuss progress with all the group.

At show and tell Janice showed us her quilt top from her bee blocks. isn't it stunning??!! This is going to make an amazing quilt. I think everyone wanted to start a project using shirts after seeing this!

Sheena presented her Bee blocks (above), she is using the logo from the Royal British Legion Scotland where she works. There will be more info about this in a separate post later.

These are Sheila's blocks, called Scottish Plaid (I think), she wants you to choose your favourite colour. Again more details in a separate post.
Jackie also presented her block for November as she won't be here. We will recap next month for anyone that missed it, but it's Christmassy!
Audrey will type up the minutes and send out next week. Thanks again Audrey!
