It was the first meeting of the year for Country Roads Quilters yesterday and we started the actual stitching (there's been a lot of planning and preparation to reach this point) of our quilt that we are intending to enter at the Festival of Quilts this year. This is the block I made, apart from the business meeting and lunch, it took me all day! I so rarely do this sort of patchwork these days that I found it exhausting, but I am pleased with my block and even more pleased that other members produced lovely blocks too. I think the quilt is going to be a success, we are currently deciding on quilting designs, more planning and decisions! We are very fortunate that one member, Liz, took on the role of both designer and co-ordinator of the project, she has done an excellent job and continues to do so.
Here are some of us at work, you can see the concentration!
