Exhibition entries are now open

Members can now enter their quilts into our club exhibition by going to this page -  (Just click on the website name to be taken there.)

Please make sure you have all your information ready, because once you start you will need to complete the process.  You need to know: 
- Quilt name
- Size (width and length)
- Story
- Design sources
- a digital photo of the whole quilt (if possible)
and for non challenge quilts, your hanging preference

The questions you will be asked on the online form are dependent on your answers to previous questions.  

Please check your spelling as we hope to use this information on display tags at the exhibition.

You will be required to bring your quilt along to club day on Saturday 28th July between 1-3:30pm for hand in. 

Once you have completed your entry you will receive a confirmation email.

If you have any questions contact Anne on .

And here are some smaller samples:

The class covered fussy cutting:

and glue basting:

Here's what the group achieved over the course of a lovely relaxed day:

Block of the Month

We love to see Block of the Month quilts at our Show and Tell. 

Wendy won these blocks in April last year, and one year later she's turned them into this lovely quilt. 

Some close ups:

Each month our members are given a pattern for a block, and each block they bring back equals one entry in the draw to win them all.

Here's another example of a block of the month being turned into a finished quilt.
