A large number of members examined ‘The Traditional Suitcase Collection’ from the Guild. This has been produced by a number of Guild Members showcasing the variety of Traditional Techniques and Blocks. It is available for hire from the Guild throughout the year.
We divided into groups with a spokesperson in each. Five or Six of the small quilts were placed within each group where the spokesperson led a discussion about them Each spokesperson then told the whole group about their batch of quilts and their thoughts. Each group of quilts was then moved around the groups.
At the end of the meeting an open discussion on favourites, interesting techniques and questions ensued. There was a lovely interested buzz in the air and it was decided to repeat the event with the Modern Quilts at a date in the future.
