Castlemaine Applique Group Meeting

 Today's blog post is all about applique quilts. I'm lucky enough to belong to a group of excellent quilters with a passion for applique and the Show and Tell today was spectacular as usual. Unfortunately I don't have information about who made all of the quilts and which are original designs so just enjoy the photos. We also had two lovely guest speakers today and I'll share their quilts in tomorrow's blog post. It was a beautiful spring day made all the better by sharing quilty fun with like-minded quilters. I have a drive of over 2 hours to and from the meeting but it is always worth it to be inspired by this group of talented quilters. Our next exhibition will be held in March 2016 and if this year's is any indication it will be showcasing fabulous appliqued quilts. We all leave the meetings full of inspiration and enthusiasm to go home and stitch so I'm getting off the computer and spending some time with Baby Jane. According to Brenda P. the original Dear Jane quilt is the Mother and our versions are Baby Jane's. 
Hugs, Jan Mac
