February meeting

For our February meeting, we had a hand-piecing work-night with the emphasis on e
English paper-piecing.

Grania Preston gave a demo on "fandango's" (folded units but into patchwork blocks).

Claire Lynch gave a demo on English paper-piecing (hexagons) and showed paper-piecing samples from her City & Guilds course work.

Gillian Killick also did a demo on hexagons and showed a hexagon quilt that was started in the 1980's. Gillian also had a number of samples using hexagons in a variety of different ways e.g. tree blocks with the hexagons used to the foliage...

Nora O'Connor also gave a demo on paper-piecing and had some lovely samples to show.

The challenges were UFO's (carried over from January's meeting) and 10" pink blocks (for the February challenge).
