October 7, 2017 | Posted in:Drop-in, Meetings, Row-by-row Challenge

Next meeting is on Wednesday 11 October, 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.

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! So far we have had:

# Colours Additives Inspirations
1 Turquoise Paints/ pencils/ dyes/ ink Letters
2 Red Recycled/ leftovers/ found objects Earth, water, fire and air
3 Purple Geometry Celebrations
4 Yellow Threads/ Stitches Opposites
5 Green Embellishments Animal, vegetable, mineral
6 Pink Linen / silk/ lace Heritage, tradition
7 Neutral Print/ words Numbers
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 13 September.

Felicity, a member living in Germany, has jumped ahead to finish her response so that the baby can enjoy the quilt.
