I have just spent 2 lovely days with the Epping Quilters who were celebrating their 30th Anniversary with yet again another great show.
A great venue, wonderful quilts and great company just made the whole event very enjoyable.
There are lots of images to show you but today I will start with some of the quilts that were a mystery project for the group. The group decided on the following rules, one clue per month for 7 months, borders of no more than 6" and all would be kept secret until the unveiling date.
The clues were......
*create a centre medallion no more than 12" square
*surround it with a border containing triangles,
*Turn it on point,
*Add a border based on a nine patch,
*Create an applique border
*Add a border with curves or the appearance of curves,
*Finish with a border that suites your quilt.
and what an amazing difference there is ......
How wonderful that we don't all think the same....how boring things would be.
More tomorrow.....its time to do some stitching of my own now!
