Quilt opens show

Last weekend one of our members went to an exhibition by Meon Valley Quilters in Wickham.  She was surprised to find a quilt made by another of our club members as the display at the entrance to the show!  The whole exhibition showed off the creativity of the quilters, and was amazing and very colourful.

Alison, the quilter, explained that the design is called the Dashing Dutchman.  It was the 2021 online design from “The Crafty Nomad”, who sent the block pattern and a series of videos to follow each month, to learn new techniques and tips.

Alison said: “I enjoyed the fabric paper piecing – which gave accurate results and the monthly zoom sessions where we were able to ask questions and then see each other’s work.”  She said her granddaughter chose the background fabric, and the finished project was quilted for her by quantum quilting.
