Waverley Patchworker's Meeting

 Last week, I was called upon to run the Waverley Patchworkers monthly meeting because the President was away on holidays and the Vice President was injured after a fall. 

It was a very eventful meeting. Not only were the President and Vice President unavailable, the guest speaker had to pull out because she was unwell!

I haven't been President for a few years and I felt a bit rusty but then I had to be guest speaker as well! What a night.

When we arrived at the meeting we found that the area around the hall was packed with people and  there was no parking anywhere because the Emerge Lantern Festival was on.

I took a few photos because I started to think that the meeting wouldn't be able to go ahead because of the parking situation.

It was a cold night but luckily it wasn't raining.

By some miracle, members started trickling in after finding parks in the side streets.

Most of my Art Quilts are hanging in the Kyabram Exhibition so I did my talk on my Crazy Quilts. I hadn't been guest speaker there for quite a few years and so people seemed to enjoy hearing about my quilts.

Here is the last crazy quilt that I ever made, A Time for all Seasons.

A Time for all Seasons by Linda Steele

I'll be back in Kyabram on Wednesday and that will be the last time that I can attend because I will be very busy running the Victorian Quilters Showcase. Our first in-person show since 2019.

Bye for now,

People seemed to enjoy my impromptu talk!

I think I first 'discovered' you when I came across a photo of your Time For All Seasons project. I remember, then as now, being blown away by the artistry in that piece.
Good thing you were able to step in and take over the meeting AND act as guest speaker!!

Thanks Magpie Mumblings, I love that quilt as well, I felt as if I put all the of the techniques that I knew into that quilt.
