Christmas Redwork Bunting!
It would be good to start a new group project now, so for everyone who wants to join in please make some Christmas Bunting. We can put it up for Christmas 2021 in the Bowling Club.
Sadie Yeomans has sent us her latest Redwork designs called Woodland Swag the PDF for which has been forwarded to all members. You can print out the ones you want to make. There are five different animals to choose from with holly and mistletoe. They finish 6 1/2 x 6 1/2 inches square with a red border.
These are Sadie’s designs and we’ve paid her for the pdf for the use of CQs members. Obviously for copyright reasons we shouldn’t pass them on to others not in CQs.
So when you’ve made a square using whatever coloured thread and embellishments you wish please add a red border and sew a small button on to each top corner. Then we can join them with ribbon between the buttons.
Alternatively if Redwork isn’t your thing why not make a square of Patchwork or Appliqué with a Christmas theme or Christmas fabric instead. Please aim for size 6 1/2 x 6 1/2 inches with a red border and sew on two buttons.
We’ll have some beautiful Christmas bunting!
For anyone interested in more of Sadie's designs she can be contacted at Cornerhouse Crafts.
Feel free to make more than one block if you wish!
It may be that some members will not wish to participate
2020 CHARITY QUILT
Our 2020 Charity Quilt was launched early in 2019 when members were asked to make up one (or two!) blocks from fabric that was in the late Margaret Smith's stash to create a quilt together to be raffled under licence at our Exhibition planned for September 2020.
The quilt is a Lynne Edwards design made of 2 different blocks. All blocks have now been returned and Dolores has inserted the triangles around each side block and has sewn the rows together. It looks spectacular as you can see below.....
These are the 2 blocks we have all contributed to making.
This is the charity quilt we are making - it is from a book by Lynne Edwards
Dolores has been very busy with our charity quilt and has now added a lovely border and binding which really complements the whole thing.
Following a visit to Quilters Corner in Evesham, Charlie (the proprietor) has done the quilting on her long arm quilting machine free of charge as the proceeds are going to our chosen charity, Campden Home Nursing. Dolores and Charlie have chosen an open flower/leaf design in a neutral thread.
This is excellent news for our project and we are delighted by Charlie's generosity - it will result in much more support for the charity. Thank you to Quilters Corner!
