 “Quarantine Quilts” – Virtual Show & Tell     (Updated 21st  July 2020)

 
As we are currently unable to attend our regular monthly meetings and workshops, and as a means of staying in touch, we thought it would be interesting to share some of the work you have been doing during the past few months.  These photos will be posted in the Gallery section  – ‘Quarantine Quilts’!
 
If you would like members to see your work, please email some photos of your current projects with a title or brief description to
 
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 for our virtual Show & Tell!
 
 

WPG Members 2020 Collaborative Quilt

Our WPG Members 2020 Collaborative Quilt is in aid of our Charity – Wicklow Dementia Support – https://wicklowdementiasupport.org/

The quilt will be made up of two different blocks – one a simple pinwheel and the other a pieced flower block.  For all instructions and sizing for making these two blocks click here.

The background fabric must be white or white-on-white and the other colour may be whatever you like. Please make as many as you wish – just make sure they measure 6.5 x 6.5!
