November meeting

Wow well what a November meeting! It was Lucys birthday and she chose to spend her birthday evening at the guild meeting (good choice Lucy)
Lucys husband contacted Jo and arranged for a birthday cake to be delivered to the meeting. Lucy is always one of the first to get up to help make the teas and coffees so we were all warned to keep her in her seat while Jo got the cake ready.

Yes there were tears, and not just from Lucy! Well done Lucys husband, you're a keeper.
Next up were the bee blocks from last month, first up were Sheenas blocks - look!

 Sheena designed her own block using the colours and logo of the Legion Scotland, the charity she works for. The quilt will be raffled off to raise funds for the charity.
Next up was ME! (Sheila - @budsmam)
I asked for a simple Scottish Plaid block, asking the ladies to pick their own colour. How fabulous are these:

Not sure how they will be laid out but they will become a linus quilt, so bright and colourful, perfect.
Lucy didnt make last months meeting so she laid out her bee blocks too, they will be a quilt for her nieces baby. This will be an incredible quilt:
Show and tell was next, still full up with cake the members showcased an incredible variety of quilted things. Look at Barbaras tree skirt:
Helens hand appliqued quilt was incredible, the choice of colours the stitching, well done Helen!

I didnt manage to get a picture of Tatyanas amazing mini quilt, you will just have to take my word for this that it is totally AMAZING :-)
And what about Fiona's quilt for her son:
A perfect example of deceptively simple piecing showcasing great fabric choice and placement.
Roll on December!
