Another talk

Last week I was the guest speaker at Rose City Quilters in Palmerston North, this week I was the guest speaker at Capital Quilters in Lower Hutt.  

Yes, I had a last minute invitation to be the guest speaker at Capital Quilters last weekend.  Unfortunately I couldn't let you know, because like Palmerston North, the meeting was restricted to members only, with a maximum of 100 attendees.  

I hadn't really unpacked from my Palmerston North trip, so it was easy enough to scoop up a few quilts and put them in the car.  I changed my talk up a bit, and included some different quilts including this one:

This is my Scrappy Bear Paw quilt, made to celebrate Capital Quilters 30th anniversary. I love this quilt because it's nice and bright, and I did big stitch hand quilting with Perle 8. 

A lot of members made Bear Paw quilts that year, and we hung them all in the hall at Christmas 2015.  It looked amazing. 

Our guild is going to run a Bear Paw block of the month next year.  Maybe I'll be tempted to make another version when I see all the blocks on the wall.  This is why we chose bear paw.  It's in our logo. 

Now it's time for the Peacock Party.  Feel free to link up a recent blog post below.

Thanks for sharing the photos. Bear Paw blocks are among my favourite blocks to make and it's lovely to see a display of them in so many different colourways.

Isn't it nice to be invited to share your makes, even if it's at the last minute? You sure have some lovely things to share. And that picture of you hand-quilting... well, it's divine. Such perfect stitches. Terribly impressive.
