This week at Fairholme

We had a substantial 'show and tell' session this week, with these quilts in addition to the work shared from the 'Logs and Ladders' workshop on 1 April:

Margaret showed us some of the modern Waggas she makes
from repurposed blankets, woollen fabric scraps and a little
quilting cotton. She appliques by machine, and uses wool
blankets for the backing, so they don't need batting ...
... they are utterly charming and very warm, and such 
a good way of up-cycling blanket wool.
Daphne chose a very appealing combination of a mostly 
turquoise print and white for her two fabric disappearing 
four patch quilt - always a favourite!
Susan M is always ready to try a new technique - this her first
stained glass quilt. Not bad a for a beginner!
Finishing herLogs and Ladders quilt top last weekend
prompted Roslyn's memory that she had made this quilt
with improvised curved piecing some time ago.
