You can see on the walls all the things that get in the background of photos plus about 6 doors, a clock and a fire extinguisher. Most of the time that doesn't matter and we hang some things over the top if they have sleeves or hangers...it's really only annoying for taking photos.
The Quilt Journeys we have been having where a members tells her journey since she started quilting ( or sewing ) and shows us some of the quilts; hangings and other treasures she has made, are being really successful and an idea other groups might like to try. It is much better than just writing about it because we get to see the actual objects. Yesterday N told us her journey and showed her first quilt made back in 1970! She has been prolific and does beautiful work.
I just have to show you this next photo..B made this "The Fish Wife," at a 2 day class at Cottage Flair with NZ tutor Jill Maas. Isn't it hilarious. The fabric used for the 4 different types of fish were just right.Her hair was combed out chenille. Bev was rightly proud of her effort and Jill's classes always have good results.
Thanks for the useful comments about eyes for my butterflies, Jennifer & Meggie& Molly. Tracey I am thinking what if the paper pattern looks better than the coloured fabrics for my centre panel - sew on the paper??? or do it all in white fabric with black outlines? I hope to find out during the weekend.
Bubble I give quilts to family and charity things and as presents. I have mostly only sold smaller things like aprons and my felt balls....but if I keep on sewing soon I may have too many ( haha ) too kept and may wish to part with some. One can never really charge what quilts are worth!
Greetings to new readers here and thanks for your email and kind comments Helen in Canada and Mama Bear.
