Also in Show and Tell was a quilt Nan had finished making from last year's Block of the Month. She filled it out with some extra blocks.( the reason I have cut the bottom of the photo off was a table was protruding into the picture. )
Something else the group is doing is making a friendship quilt for a member who is in hospital. It was to be 9.5" block using New Zealand fabrics. This is my donated block.
One afternoon last week when the sun appeared for a couple of hours I went and collected this many walnuts. You can see why I need to take the tractor with me to carry them home.
They are now drying in the sun, which has returned yesterday and today....back to Autumn instead of the few days preview of Winter we had been having.
Yesterday I happened to be talking to one of our members who had lived and worked in UK for several years ( working as a technician for Elna sewing machines ) and she said the best quilt display she saw the whole time she was there in UK was in the American Museum in Bath. A little later a newer member of our group came and spoke to me and said, " I couldn't help over hearing your conversation and I want to endorse that that quilt display is worth seeing." She had lived for 21 years in Bath so gave me full instructions ( which I have written down in my diary ) on how to get there. Sometimes serendipitous things happen. I would like to know if any of you reading this have visited the American Museum in bath. What is your opinion of their quilt collection Please?
