Town and Country Quilters April Club Night

Our meeting started with a super quick AGM, and a changing of the guard.  Thanks were made to the outgoing committee members, and the new committee was welcomed in.  As far as club AGMs go, I had never attended such a speedy meeting before.  With the business out of the way, we got on with Show and Tell.  Eleanor had brought along a gorgeous beaded wall hanging in shades of purple.  This really needed close inspection later to see all the details.

Also in shades of purple was Sew Wot member Heather’s Star Block of the Month.  She is very generously donating this to the Ronald McDonald House.

Marjorie’s Log Cabin with a Twist was made in shades of brown and cream.  I had not seen this particular variation before.

One of our junior members (sorry, I didn’t catch her name)  made this  Dr Seuss quilt for a family member.  What a great job.

And last but not least is a trio of quite differently designed quilts on the hangers.  Roundabout is the name of another of Heather’s quilts, done in shades of pink and accentuated with circles done in fancy stitching, displayed next to my Maple Leaf quilt.  And peeping out underneath is a wonderful photo quilt.  Bev made this stunning quilt for family members who lived overseas for 10 years, and have now returned home to New Zealand.

After listening to our inspiring speaker Camilla (more on this tomorrow), it was time for supper, a bit of a chat, and head back home.
