We began the celebrations this month by looking at the WAQA Challenge quilts, especially those entered by CQG members. As always it was interesting to hear the planning and techniques that went into each work.
Phil and Meg showed how to wrap a wine bottle, books and boxes using fabric in the Japanese Furoshki style (for more links and info about Furoshki go to the ‘How to’s page)
Marilyn showed how to make fabric boxes and Sheila demonstrated two simple napkin folds to grace our Christmas tables
Of course the main event was our traditional buffet lunch which was enjoyed by all, as the following photos indicate. Note the punch was non – alcoholic and the super sized bowl is actually an optical illusion!
Have a Happy Contemporary Christmas and we look forward to seeing you all at our next meeting in February!
