still quilting

Everyone’s busy quilting; the hot weather doesn’t stop us, because there’s always a way of carrying on! I look with envy to those on the other side of the world with the cold and the snow, just to be able to escape this heat; they are probably doing the same but instead wishing the snow would give up!
I have another block finished for the Aurifil BOM, which I started in January and mentioned here.

so at least that is growing , even if it’s ever so slightly!

My local quilting group, Gatton Quilters, also had our first meeting for the year, and lots of lovely things were on show.
Marilyn had this quilt that she has been working on for awhile:

Shirley showed us a small fabric journal page she had created to the theme “roots”, which certainly got some ‘oohs’ and ‘aahs’….

and Trish showed her journal page to the theme of ‘using a constant shape’ with a clever use of ric-rac:

And last but not least, Shirley was celebrating a special birthday with a lovely quilted gift made by fellow club members:

Shirley creates beautiful quilts and is very prolific, so I’m sure she’ll always find a way to keep quilting!
