All together now

We kicked off our latest Block of the Month Club on Saturday in the excellent Thornton Le Beans Village Hall.
It was a lovely sunny morning, light streaming in through the windows and a bird singing outside. There was a buzz of anticipation as we began to sew.
As usual with a group of entusiasts, individual stories were told.
Memories of canine friends past and present came through ~ my best is Christine who is making a quilt for her husband's birthday of all the dogs they're had in their life together. Thank you Christine, this is exactly what I hoped would happen when I began to design this project last year.
Others were thinking on their feet of how to take the designs and change them to their own ~ Debbie has been too traumatised by last year's triangle border and has come up with her own variation, undertaking to make kennels to go round the whole quilt.
Helen and Karen have taken Fred, the rough haired terrier, and are turning him into a cushion ~ well, his image that is! I can't wait to see the results.
