Winter by Helen Kirk
Our February meeting was held again in the afternoon and we had a terrific turnout. We do miss those who can’t be with us because of work commitments. We will return to evening meetings on *April 9, 2018 and hopefully we will be done with winter and we will be welcoming spring! *Please note our meeting is one week later than usual due to the Easter Monday holiday.
Not 70 by Cathy Drummond
We had a wonderful and diverse show and tell. Cathy shared her two pieces that will be in the SAQA Atlantic show Transitions which will be at the Craig Gallery, Alderney Landing in Dartmouth opening Wed. March 29 from 7-9pm and runs until April 29, 2018. Be sure and get there to see these wonderful 29 pieces from 19 art quilters.
Ann Phelan shared her Falling Triangles, machine pieced and machine quilted by Ann. The *pattern from Missouri Star can be found here *Ann sent this note with reference to the Missouri Star pattern “I do NOT make HST in the manner used by Missouri Star. Their method creates all edges of the HST being cut on the bias which creates an extra stretchy sewing line. You can look up how to cut HST online to find other methods. The Missouri Star pattern produced a finished 9 3/4” HST and about a 12” block. Mine were a finished 3 7/8” HST and about 6” block. The Missouri Star pattern calls for a smaller strip proportionally than I did”. Thanks Ann!
Georgina’s Endless Chain, was machine pieced and hand quilted.
