July Meeting

Yesterday, the Genesis group met up to see how progress is going on our Burren quilts. Four of the group are entering our Burren panels as a group entry into this year's FoQ.

Meg was away for a family wedding and holiday, so hasn't got a quilt to show yet, but she is going to be working on her panel over the next two weeks. So, the other three Genesis members showed their Burren quilts, in various stages of completion.
Quilts from left to right: Paula's, Tracy's and Claire's.
It was the first time that we've been able to view our quilts together and is was interesting to see how everyone has worked on the theme differently and used very different techniques to achieve their results.

Claire has used a variety of printing techniques on her quilt: soy-was batik, discharge printing etc.

 Paula has used photo-transfer images and collage

Tracy has used foundation piecing, trapunto, embroidery etc. Each member has also used a different colour to highlight the gray rock colours - pink, blue and yellow.

It was also apparent how well the idea of dyeing all the fabrics together at the start of the project worked - this really ties the project together.

The paparazzi were out in force!!

The Festival of Quilts (FoQ) deadline is fast approaching, so the group are meeting up again on the 22nd July. All four panels have to be finished and ready to post on this date!
Tracy was taking full advantage of the time by finishing off thread ends and embroidering.
