February 2009 Meeting

Moya Geraghty was the speaker at the February meeting. Moya was giving a talk on "Small Projects" - small items to work on in between making larger quilts. She brought a large variety of items to show i.e. wine bottle gift-bags, table runners, fabric baskets, pin-cushions etc.

Moya also brought in a number of simple quilts which are fast to make up. The quilt shown below is a rail-fence quilt.

This centre of this quilt was made from a Christmas themed panel. Borders were then added to make a Christmas wall-hanging.
This eye-catching quilt was made using a theme fabric which had large colourful flowers. Black & white fabrics really added to the vibrancy of this quilt which was constructed using the quilt-as-you-go method. This rag quilt was also made using the quilt-as-you-go method.
This Christmas quilt was made from simple blocks in bright colours. The trees were then embellished with gold ribbons etc.
Nora O'Connor brought a number of bags for show & tell. One of the bags was made with bright pink silk. She also brought in a bag for donation to the Suzie Long Hospice.

Paula Rafferty also showed 3 bags that she has made - 2 which were made for her daughter Isabelle.
There was also a show & tell of the EQA "Hot & Cold" Exhibition.
