Carol showed a quilt, named Grandmother's Garden, that she completed on behalf of Olive, a founder member who had sadly passed away.


Sandy brought in this excellent example of various blocks, to which she planned to keep adding other blocks.

Chris must be one of our most prolific quilters and this month she showed her latest Linus quilt, front and back.

Unfortunately our January 2022 meeting was cancelled due to the rise in COVID infections so our first opportunity to get together in the New Year took place in February.

Chris is one of our most prolific quilters and she presented another two fine examples.

Norma displayed two quilts she made for the Quilts for Afghanistan Refugees project.

Jenny Steward is working with the Afghanistan Association of London, Harrow (AAL) to provide much needed quilts that can be given to Afghan refugees in the UK. Her appeal is for groups, or individuals, to make single-bed size quilts that can be donated to this charity for distribution. Jenny will act as conduit to deliver any collected quilts to AAL.
