June 2019 Meeting
Our members have been busy making beautiful quilts and we all enjoyed a variety of quilts from traditional patterns to improv to art.
What a wonderful meeting indeed, which started with a presentation about Kaffe Fasset and his journey of stitching, quilting and finally to designing fabrics.
Dipti Fernandez showed her lovely Elephant from Pam Holland’s workshop and a lovely splash of colours in a traditional quilt setup.
We were fortune to have not one but two International Quilters in Kenya this year. Earlier in the year we had Pam Hollands teaching us some wonderful quilting techniques then it was something new and very Modern “Improv” by Kathy Graves. Tina, Jasvinder and Raji with some fantastic results. Raji Syan used all African fabrics for her Modern Quilt.
But that was not all. Vimi showed her beautiful quilt she learned with Pam Holland. Raghbir Syan made a very cute baby quilt. Carol Davey explained her very original version of Millefiori with all African fabrics. Carol takes inspirations from Kateja Marek and Willyne Hammerstien and gives it her own style and colour.
Gretchen Sanders is one of our very talented Art Quilter. Gretchen presented a fabulous quilt made with Japanese fabrics, Inspiration from Spirals and a bird eye view of Urban Life.
and lastly Salama Mama’s with their new made to order “Blue Quilt”.
