The Meeting Before the Meeting Before Our 2010 Exhibition

Skye Quilters meeting in Portree Isle of Skye

July 2010 Meeting

Being such a lovely summer’s day wet day, it was perfect to be indoors for some quilting. Jenny did a roundup of things related to our exhibition next month:

  • S & Q for the banner have been made, other letters have been taken by volunteers. Also need 3×3″ blocks to decorate the banner.
  • The proceeds of the Dresden plate raffle quilt  (see photo below) will go to Skye Cancer Care. Donations of other prizes for the raffle will be most welcome.
  • Remember to let Jenny have the details of the quilt(s) you want to exhibit.

A section of the Dresden Plate Quilt which will be raffled at our exhibition in August.

No wonder it’s been raining, Lin’s been working on a quilt that’s got yellow in it, and a circle amongst the triangles. Isn’t it just fabulous?! Vote all round was for only one circle.

Courthouse steps meets log cabin in this quilt by Irene. You can’t really see it in the photo, but the picture blocks in the centres, and one of the other fabrics, have the purple in them too.
