It was our usual meeting this Monday - a sit and sew day - plus a workshop given by one of our members, Sheila Lloyd, on piecing the American Beauty block. I found this quite labour intensive. The templates had to be drawn on to iron-on vilene and then ironed to the fabric and stitched around the drawn lines. There are four components to the block, each one executed in a different fabric. We needed a selection of light, medium and dark fabrics. The photographs show Sheila's samples that she had prepared prior to the meeting. The morning seemed to fly by as we were all so industrious - some doing their own projects and some working with Sheila.
Next month we have Christine Restall coming to talk to us about her Quilting Journey - something we all are looking forward to very much.
