Our members quilts displayed at Te Takere are looking great, and are sure to elicit some interest for our club. I have been along a to view them a couple of times, but my first visit coincided with a Tai Chi class. All that slow and elegant bending and stretching in front of our quilts didn’t make for a great photo opportunity. My second visit was much more successful, and I stopped for a while to chat with Ellen and Rachel who were on afternoon duty.
They were both doing handwork and I was very interested to see what they were working on. Ellen was stitching away on a Blokkenspel, an original pattern by Tall Poppies, of the Cloth Shop. This makes an interesting interlocked soft block design, which opens this way and that.
Rachel’s handwork was just as intricate, and she was working on some lovely hydrangea blocks – so pretty with the added beads.
There was a great variety of quilts displayed – as to be expected as our members are very talented indeed.
