Our new meeting place in the City of Ormond Beach is being held in the Bailey Riverbridge Gardens in the church gardens. The meeting will begin at 9:00 am and continue until 12 noon. (The room will be available to us from 9:00 am until noon)

Stuart Bailey gave a demonstration on making the corners of your binding to fit in. The third Friday of each month we will have a learning experience. All members are talented and we would like you to pass on something you have mastered to the group.

Jenny delivered the lap robes to the Nursing Home.

In previous years our members have provided snacks at the business meeting … But as a group we are no longer going to do this. If you would like to bring a drink you are more than welcome to do that.

New group project will be announced soon.

Come join us and bring your work to share.

Byrd’s Nest Quilt Shop has donated children’s fabrics for our charity work and we thank them.

A thicker material often results in a bulkier quilt which is good for colder nights lying in bed and quilting. However, if you are after something a little more light weight, it&#82 Continue

    For Christmas this year we decided to bring all our families together for a large Christmas barbecue in mid December. One of the girls recently picked up a great smoker on Amazon and wanted to test out her new smoking skills to make some delicious smoked ribs. This would also give us a chance to introduce the art of quilting to our families as a a multi-layered textile that can be designed several suitable sizes and that is made of three layers of fiber. Quilting is an art which is very interesting to learn. The more you quilt the more you gain, provided the quilt should be creative and appealing. So try to learn quilting by referring and attending various classes and become an intermediate or expert in it. You can do quilt in various styles as per your wish and thoughts.

    It’s charity time again for Quilters By The Sea and this time we are getting our hands dirty. It’s the start of the summer and what better time to be outside and mowing the lawn. We are raising money for brain cancer research via our usual charity. We have much lawn to cover and as such will be dawning the ride on mowers for this energising task. These will be on loan from the local hardware store and will be one given away at the end of the day.
    The best zero turn mowers provided are bound to help us achieve a fast and effective mowing experience. It will also place a little less stress on our ageing bodies. They are equipped with a sun protection roof and drinks holders. Great to bring a vodka martini along for the ride (joking! ;)).
