Theses are pictures of part of the Exhibition that was set up in memory of Del Whitfield one of our founder members who sadly passed away quite recently.  This is only a fraction of her work.  Many of us had no idea of the extent of her many and varied creations.    She just quietly got on with what she wanted to do without a lot of fuss.  She was very active within the Group and was always off taking part in various workshops.  We miss her very much.

The following pictures are of work by other members of the Hardy Quilters.

Dear Jane quilts made by Sheila Lloyd, Jenny Greenwood and Sue Warwick.

Judie Rothermel Quilt made by Lizzie Drake and long arm quilted by Frances Taylor

Top - Chantal David at Kathryn Chambers workshop
Bottom - Fish by Lizzie Drake at Claire Passmore workshop.  These were workshops held by Hardy Quilters at Osmington Village Hall.

Ann Jones

Guess the name of the Pub challenge

There are more pictures to follow and I will update the credits on this posting.

On behalf of the Committee I would like to express thanks to all those members that volunteered to help during what was two busy days.  We would not have managed without you, and your help was very much appreciated.  So very often it is left to the same people to take the load of all the work and this is just not fair.  Everything is done for the good of the Hardy Quilters and its members therefore it would be very gratifying if more people volunteered to help at times if only to make tea and coffee which is all provided and just amounts to boiling a kettle.

Our next meeting is on Monday September 25th and is the Annual General Meeting, usual time 10 a.m.    After the business there will be a mini workshop led by Ann Jones.
