June Meeting

Our June meeting was a summer party with plenty of food for everyone.

For most of the year, the branch has been running a mystery quilt challenge. There was a great turnout of finished mystery quilts on the night, which was brilliant - a lot of people were very interesting in trying out this quilt. The amazing thing was even though they were made using the same pattern, the different fabrics used made them all seem very different. Thanks to Rebecca Palmer who kindly organised the mystery quilt challenge for us.

Phil Alyward made this version of the mystery quilt. She used up the left-over pieces from the cutting of the quilt to make a piano-key type border.

More Mystery Quilts;

A very colourful baby quilt made by Chris Palmer.

Gillian Sheehan showed this great bag that she has made.

Ger Larkin brought in this quilt top that she's working on based on 9 churches in the Tuam area.

Isobel, more of our younger members, brought in this nine-patch block that she has hand-pieced!

Missing Keys

One of our members lost a bunch of keys during the June meeting, which is hoping to find. The missing keys are a large bunch of keys, which have been described as a "jailor's bunch of keys"!

We're hoping that the keys got mixed up with someone's belongings or maybe somebody picked them up after the meeting.

If you remember seeing the keys could you please contact a committee member or leave a comment on the blog. Thanks.

Summer Get-together on 10th June

Don't forget our summer get together is on at the Baptist hall on Friday 10th June.

This is a relaxed summer get together /party; we will have our summer challenge - the mystery quilt to show, so please bring yours along whatever stage it is at (mine isn't finished but it will be there), and whatever other wonderful pieces you have been working on. Also we are planning a small demo, raffle and a party, do please bring a plate of food to share (but not too much and no alcohol please).

I look forward to seeing you there. Also, remind your branch friends and colleagues to come along too.

All the best and see you there.
