“Summer Show & Tell” (Updated 4th June 2021) 

Welcome to our new “Show & Tell” Gallery!  Until we can meet again for our monthly meetings we will be having a virtual “Show & Tell”. This will give you the opportunity to share your work with our members and anyone who chooses to visit our website.

Please send the photographs of your work, be it quilting or craft items, to webminder@wicklowpatchwork.ie. 

If your quilt is too large to photograph properly, just photograph a section or some of the detail.
 
We look forward to receiving plenty of quilts/crafts for our virtual Summer Show & Tell!

Terri McNeill
1960-2021

 

Our treasured member, friend and teacher passed away on Tuesday, 9th March 2021.  There were few people who patchwork and quilt, who were not taught or inspired by Terri. Members have described her as ‘a kind, gentle soul’ and ‘a wonderfully talented lady’. Many have remarked on how privileged they felt to have had the opportunity to make at least one of her quilts in her classes and all say they owe her so much for inspiring and encouraging us in our craft.

We will all miss her deeply.

We extend our heartfelt sympathies to her husband Don and her ‘boys’, her family and her friends.

One thing is certain she will be remembered in every stitch we make (and the ones we rip out) and in every quilt we finish (or don’t).

Thank you Terri.

 

 

WPG Members 2020 Collaborative Quilt

This beautiful Tulip and Pin Wheel Quilt was made by WPG members to assist with the fund raising efforts of Wicklow Dementia Support who are currently our designated Charity. https://wicklowdementiasupport.org/

Members collaborated by making the blocks which were then assembled by member Gwen Gould. We would like to thank Gwen for all her work in putting the blocks together. A big thank you also to all our members who made the blocks.

A special word of thanks to Nikki Foley of The Sewing Shed who very kindly did the wonderful quilting for us.

For instructions and sizing for making the two quilt blocks click here.
