Happy International Quilting Day

Kenya is so lucky to have the International Quilting day falling in our Quilt Show. Please make it a point to visit the show today at Nairobi National Museum.

Take photos/selfies while you are there or with your quilt and send it to us with a small message. We will make a nice collage and post it here soon.

A delightful November meeting.

Some beautiful and creative quilts were displayed along with a rare find by Donna. The techniques included hand dyed fabric, hexagons made with gorgeous Kenyan Kanga, appliqué, foil on fabric and incredible hand quilting with African motifs.

An incredible display of colorful and very thoughtfully planned quilts.

The dachshund quilt showed love and care for a friend, blast of colors in a nine patch and snowball quilt for a darling daughter, full of love Bargello Heart, ShweShwe dress for a dolly, Gorgeous Giraffes, EPP patterns with African fabric and gorgeous decorated bras to commemorate Cancer Awareness day. We had it all.

The 2018 KQG Calendars adorned with the creative Giraffe Quilts were on sale also at the meeting.

Dorothy and Charu gave some very useful quilting tips about mitered corners, free motion quilting and fabric.

See you all next month November 16th.

Cheers
