quilters meeting

At our recent meeting for Gatton Quilters we had a visit from the Mountain Creek Quilt Group. Just a get-together but it gave us the chance to show and tell a lot of our works, past and current. Besides meeting another group of fine quilters, it was great to talk with others with like-minded interests, to discuss the projects we have been working on, pick up a few tips here and there and of course have a cuppa and a chat!
Some of our members brought along some completed projects that none of us have seen, such as this beautifil quilt by Jean:

Marilyn had some small mini quilts in delicious shades of chocolate!

Some of our ladies have been doing an embroidery class with Jan Knight, who we are very lucky to have as a member in our club. Lyn’s picture, with such lovely meticulous stitches:

and Meryl’s picture of a bird showing a range of different techniques- just spectacular!

Both embroideries were professionally framed which just added to their presentation.

And there were also some more of the fabric journals to show from some of the Art Quilters: Lyn’s with some more needle-felted work on the front

and Meryl, who made her journal with an underwater theme, but maybe also a little on-top-of-the-water!?

Just goes to show that Quilters are a versatile bunch!
