You may (or not) know that I joined a local patchwork club in October . . . I had been thinking about it for a while, but finally took the plunge . . . and have been learning various techniques and assembling my first blocks. Well today, it’s the local patchwork show . . . so up early this morning to help set up displays and here are photos to show you just a small example of what is on display. The only bits of mine (aside from my pincushion) are in the WIP corner (so the first photo) . . . the other photos are all of work by fellow club members. I leave you to admire their handicraft with no further comments except to say (when you get to the bags) that I am so impatient to make my own, and find each version so beautiful, I really don’t know what fabrics I will choose because each one looks gorgeous.
So, just a small sample of work by ladies in the patchwork club – I think there are about fifty members in total, but we meet in three different places so this annual show was a chance for ladies from different groups to meet up. Every year there is a group project organised, but this year’s group project is still a WIP. I have been making yoyos by the dozen, and assembling small squares and triangles which will be part of the outer border . . . the central panel looks like this for the moment
