March meeting

For our March Meeting, Western Branch member Ann Marie Horan was the guest speaker. Ann Marie brought lots of items for show and tell encompassing her journey through quilting.

Ann Marie also brought a number of her earlier pieces, which she brought to show beginner quilters that everyone has to start somewhere.

She also had lovely stories about each quilt, who it was made for, and how the recipient's colour choices (or in some cases hair colour ) decided the colour scheme for the quilt.

This quilt was designed by her daughter.

Panel made by Ann Marie. The Western Branch made a number of these panels which all hung together at the Irish Quilt Festival 2013 in Galway.

 This Tuscan landscape inspired piece by Ann Marie was part of the IPS National Exhibition "Explorations". 

The shop on the night was Clew Bay Quilting. 

Show and Tell:

Mary Murphy showed this fabulous quilt made for her son. Her son is very involved in the Scouts and all the blocks relate to his scouting pastime in various ways.
