Forsbrook Quilt Group

Dotty Maureen, ironing her pineapple blossom pieced border ' bunting', it really looked like carnival bunting too!
Brenda (not Barbara!) on the left, cut her strip sets into blocks and got them all sewn into the quilt top.
On the right there, is our new lady, we shall call her 'Joan The Shop' he he he... I have never had anyone turn up to a first class with so much fabric, she has a beautiful stash, all pieces bought "just because".... I would never do that, would I? Would you? Of course we do it, all the time!!....
Joan brought in this quilt top to show us, all of the hexagons are hand pieced, I think she said they were done a long time ago, and she remembers some of the fabrics being from curtains and dresses from years gone by.... She has a new sewing machine and a new quilting book now so she's going to finish it the fast way.... Isn't it lovely...
After a great deal of digging and deciding through her stash, Joan made up the strip sets and got them cut into blocks ready for piecing, which she will probably do for homework.

The next meeting at Heath House Farm in Forsbrook is next Friday, the 19th February... we don't have many places left for next week though, yippppeeeeeeeee!!
