Next meeting is on Wednesday 13 September, 10am for a 10.30am start, in the CQ room at the Cook Community Hub. We are having a break because of the timing of the exhibition. But don’t worry, an extra draw was done so you don’t miss making something for August.
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:
|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|
(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 get two meetings on 12 July and 14 June.
