June meeting

Our guest speaker at our June "Summer Party" meeting was Eileen Browne, a Limerick Lace-maker.

Eileen came into give a talk and demo about Limerick Lace. The AGM challenge for October is to make a piece (15"max) inspired by Limerick lace so this talk gave our members plenty of ideas to think about over the summer.

There was lots of home-made food on the night

Only 1 person managed (or remembered!) to bring their Mystery Quilt in on the night. Gillian Killick brought in her quilt which she is in the process of hand-quilting. Gillian did a lovely job on selecting colours for her quilt and has even incorporated some of the left-over blocks into the quilt-back.

 Grania gave a demo on "Antia's Arrow". We're just waiting now for the September meeting for Grania to bring in three finished "Anita's Arrow" quilts!  Here's a link to more info on making the Anita's Arrow block.
