A few more links that might be useful to readers. There is an amazing online shop in Hawaii called Fabric Mart, They have a wide selection of asian fabrics, hawaiian designs and patchwork cottons at good prices and the selection can keep a quilter busy for hours. Readers might also be interested in the numerous on line tutorials available through youtube. Favourites are, Try a search and be amazed at what techniques and delights await you from cyberspace.

Its not always sweat and toil on a Tuesday. Recently some of the group caught up for a luncheon and chat with not a piece of fabric in sight. The venue was great although the weather is getting hotter as we leave the wet season behind, so the outdoor setting was a little steamy. It was a great chance to meet and greet as well as catch up with news other than our latest creations. Quilters are a very interesting lot and especially here in Singapore with such an eclectic mix.

Members are reminded that this blog is all about you and the featured projects are only a glimpse of the talent and ability of our members. Some of these women are only beginners but the generosity of those more experienced has made for some excellent outcomes.
