Meeting Thursday 19th. April

We had a stunning collection of oak leaves at our meeting last month. Thanks to all members and
we know there are some more leaves in bud!

We had an interesting Show and Tell with several scrappy quilts, showing how you can use up
your stash in varying size quilts. Do bring in your projects for Show and Tell - it is so inspiring to
see what others are doing.

There is now a trolley available in the hall for transporting your machines etc. from the car
park, so let the trolley take the strain.

If you are interested in a coach trip to Malvern Quilt Show in May or the NEC Festival of Quilts
in August get in touch with Margaret Roper.

Archery (strip rail)

There are 2
this month.
Details for the
block (you may
else!) are
don't want to do
the centre block
use a 3¾"square

Some of you may
know the strip
rail block, or you could make the simpler rail fence. To make
either you need 3 fabrics, 2 strips of each fabric - 2⅜"x12". Join one strip of each fabric together
to make 2 rectangles. If you want to know what to do next bring your fabric and we will
demonstrate at the meeting.

You could do both blocks (or even all 3!) and then you will have 8 (9!) blocks completed.

Seven of our members (also members of U3A) went to The Craft Show at Olympia on Friday
where all the quilts and pennants made for the Olympics were on display . It was announced
which country each quilt would go to; U3A patchwork & quilting quilt is being presented to
Kenya. Congratulations on all your hard work. There was a book produced showing all the
quilts, which is sure to be very interesting.

If you have any 'news' we could include in the newsletter – websites or shops you have found,
projects etc. please let us know.
