Fruitful sewing at Flowerpatch

January is the month when all the blocks that have been made for Flowerpatch Quilter's yearly charity quilt, come together at our Thursday evening meeting. How exciting to finally see them in place ready for sewing and everyone is keen to get started and take part. Hand sewing commences right there and then.

This is the fabric that has inspired the colours of fabric chosen for the quilt, many of which have come from member's own stashes. This fabric is used in the outer border and elsewhere in the quilt.

This is the gorgeous centre piece of a wreath of fruit

and here we have a tantalising glimpse of some of the borders.

I love the colours and it's going to look wonderful. Monica B has done a brilliant job organising this and I can't quite believe how calm she was last Thursday!! Our Charity this year is Cornwall Blood Bikes.

I had taken along some of the sketches of local buildings that I had drawn (see my last post). This is for another project that we are doing in the next couple of months and many members chose a building to aid them in making a small A5 wall hanging. All will be revealed at a later date.

Liz B reminded us about this year's Chairman's Challenge which is titled "From Tree to Match", so plenty to inspire us and keep us busy.

The 9th February 2017 meeting will be an illustrated talk by Dy and Melody, about their "Quilt Trip to Prague".

What a great group to belong to - Anita x
