Next meeting is on Wednesday 13 December, 10am for a 10.30am start, in the CQ room at the Cook Community Hub. It is followed by a drop-in, until 4pm. So you can stay all day to sew.
This is our final meeting of the year – maybe we shall see some finished quilts or tops…
We will discuss the plans for 2018 and have morning tea. If you wish, please bring a small plate of food to share.
A quilt is made over the year by each member making their own rows, or blocks or items like bags. A list of ingredients is released at the beginning of the year and at each meeting two items are chosen to incorporate into that month’s design challenge. One will be a colour and one will be an additive. For instance- each row contains two “ingredients”, e.g. purple and geometry, but in whatever way the maker chooses. As the name shows, this can be a noisy group!
This is the list for the year:
|1||Turquoise||Paints/ pencils/ dyes/ ink||Letters|
|2||Red||Recycled/ leftovers/ found objects||Earth, water, fire and air|
|5||Green||Embellishments||Animal, vegetable, mineral|
|6||Pink||Linen / silk/ lace||Heritage, tradition|
|8||Orange||Improvisation||Home and family|
(Remember that you can choose an INSPIRATION for the whole year or be inspired by what’s chosen on a month-by-month basis. Up to you.)
Here are some images from our last meeting on 8 November. Some are finished quilts!
