Christmas Makes - by Jan

We arrived to find ourselves divided into four tables ready for the practical part of the evening. First we had to book in our items for the mini exhibition 
next month.  These were the Jar Challenge and the Four Way Challenge. 

Julia and Helen very efficiently checked them in and attached labels.

After the notices we settled down to make our Christmas trees.  Members of the committee had been very busy making samples to show us and were then shown how to turn two triangles in contrasting fabrics into a pretty triangular shaped folded piece.  These would then be sewn together in rows to make a Christmas Tree.  These could be of different sizes and for the largest we would need sixteen of these little pieces.  Most people decided to make the rest at home.

After coffee we had a Show and Tell and we were all very admiring of  Pat Kaye’s Japanese-inspired quilt made with a block of the month from Village Fabrics. 

We had finished a little earlier than usual which gave us time to chat before making our way home to finish our Christmas Trees.
