Our Sewing group had our first official meeting for the year a few days back. There was business to attend to, plans to make & lots of show & tell, all over a cuppa & yummy, hot, home made scones. I'll share the show & tell over a few postings so you all have time to take it all in.
To begin, check out Anne S's beautiful Hummel Quilt.
Anne made this quilt to remind her husband of his place of birth. Sister Maria Innocentia Hummel was an artist born in Bavaria Germany in 1909. While she was teaching art as a reward for her students she created pictures of children and hence the figures were born.
The quilt is made up of pieced shadow boxes, with digitized embroidery designs featured at the back. Below are some close up shots of the beautiful embroideries.
These designs came from Pfaff Disks M I Hummel no 374, Hummel Seasonal, Hummel Spring, and Exploring.
The digitized embroideries on this quilt make it a little advanced for a beginner, but the quilt design could be easily adapted to make it much simpler for a beginner to achieve, after all it is just straight sewing. Can't sew a straight line, or cut straight? Well come & join our group & we will show you how. Our next meeting is:-
9.30am - 12.30pm
Georges Hall Community Center
