Long time member and serving on the committee for the second time, Dianne brought took the quilt stack of her spare bed to show us at the March meeting.
This first quilt began in a sampler class with Hazel at Craft Connection in 1990. There were six in the class and nearly thirty years on three of them still get together regularly.
There were a lots of quilts to see, some had taken many years to get to a finished state.
The Grub Roses quilt was done with Jill Farr of Beaconsfield. The Leanne Beasley design is beautifully embroidered. No surprise at all to see a Christmas Quilt, this one was made as the pattern sample for Craft Cottage.
A scottie dog quilt made for her sister, a scrap quilt with flannel sheet wadding and quilted by hand. Finally, Bo Peep by Rosalie Quinlan, made in a workshop many years after buying the pattern.
“I believe in keeping a pattern for at least ten years to ripen before using them”
After buying a few quilts and tops here and there Dianne realises she is now also a collector of vintage quilts.
