We made ourselves at home and hung quilts from the picture rails, covering the pictures and signs!
We had decided to make log cabin blocks, so I hung the Blue Peter over the dart board, and off we went! Lesley kindly voluteered to iron - sorry, press - and she was kept very busy.
Muriel kindly agreed to put together our 'Easy Street' blocks, and she did a fabulous job.
Here are Julie and Maria choosing logs for their cabins.
Here you can see 'Easy Street' laid out for Muriel, and a young quilter, Sarah, who had brought her own fabric to make into a quilt. I asked if she had ever used a sewing machine before. 'Yes,' she said. 'When was that?' said her incredulous mum. 'At grandma's,' said Sarah. Thank goodness for grandmas, say I! She did a great job and made some 4-patches, which she joined and bordered. I gave her mum instructions for making it into a cushion, and another quilter was born!
I'm just checking that everyone is on track - and they were!
Paula and Eileen had a great time and made several blocks.
Here Sarah, myself and the front of house manager for the show are playing with blocks and making different patterns - my favourite part! We had several other visitors, some of whom sewed and some who watched. All were welcome. Then we had something to eat and watched the show. A great time was had by all, so thank you The Western, Off the Fence productions, visitors and my lovely Linus ladies! When are we doing it again?
