Town and Country Quilters September Club Night

The weeks certainly roll by, and before we knew it, it was September Club Night.  The notices were read, the raffles drawn, and then it was time for Show and Tell.  It was lovely to see several finished quilts from the recent Kingfisher thread painting class.  They all looked wonderful, and it seems such an interesting technique to learn.  Perhaps one day I’ll give it a go, if I’m brave enough.

Heather had been working on her William Morris inspired designed for a while, and finished it off with adding a lot of beading.

It was another UFO crossed off the list for Cheryl, with this striking design in black, green and pink.

Our speaker for the evening was Aimee from Aimee’s Homestead Quilts.  She brought along a lovely lot of goodies from her new shop to tempt us with, and also had a selection of quilts to show us.  Like most of us, Aimee loves Christmas, and we loved her Christmas quilts with all the lovely stitchery blocks.

Aimee related the little story behind Taupe Daisies.  The king sized quilt top was made by Aimee’s Mum, who then passed it over to Aimee to quilt for her.   Wow – that would be a big job.

Then we got a chance to check out Aimee’s stock of goodies, which she had brought along for the evening.  There were several tables groaning with stock, and I joined the others investigating what was on offer.  Of course, a couple of items jumped into my hand and I had to take them home with me.

Another good club night – I always go home with ideas buzzing around my head after seeing everyone’s lovely work.
