|That's me, talking about my quilts|
We had a prepared a Powerpoint presentation showing how we select our fabrics, the gadgets we use while making our quilts, and some examples of finished quilts. We also showed our quilts as they are at the moment.
|That's Shirley and her rosettes|
Shirley and I have adopted completely different styles for our quilts, so it gave people an insight into how these quilts can be personalised.
I gave a strong plug for the Millefiori/ la passacaglia Facebook group and encouraged anyone considering making these quilts to join up.

Knowing that the presentation was looming, I suddenly got a wriggle on and started joining up some of my rosettes. I thought it would be good if people could see what the finished quilt might look like. So over the past two weeks I've glued pieces in the day and stitched at night. Here's how mine looks now, although not all of these rosettes are joined up yet.
Shirley knows a lot of quilty people in New Zealand, and has asked me to join her in giving the presentation to another quilt guild in November. That will be an incentive to join even more rosettes before then.
