Quilts at Full Tilt

The sun it shone brightly

The leaves they glowed gold - 

Fine weather for quilting

And just a tad cold.

Our quilters were ready,

They rose with the larks.

Their bags were all packed 

For a day at St Mark's.

There was no holding back,

Our quilters don't wilt.

When it comes to creating,

It's quilts at full tilt!

Di Two shared her quilting,

Explained how it's done,

While binding a Blanket 

of Love claimed Di One.

Michelle played with felt

And she stitched up a tree

While a "Cat in the Hat" quilt

Absorbed our Di Three.

There was chat as we sat

With a cuppa that calms,

And Susie popped in 

With fabric-filled arms.

Margaret's our pink 'queen',

There's no-one to beat her

And someone who also 

loves pink is Perdita.

In hexagon heaven 

Were Gillian and Gail

Their quilts will be treasured

No way they can fail.

Sue One sewed a sweet 

baby quilt all in blue

And look at this paper-pieced

Heart by Sue Two

The "S" Team made quilts

In their favourite brights

With space monsters,

Panels and other delights.

Barb worked on her binding

And added a label,

Liz cut out cute dinosaurs 

On the side table.

Our needles worked hard

Going stitch




Piecing fabric together

To quilt in the ditch.

We stitched all day long

From "hello" to "adieu"

We stitched and 



of quilts 



From bright shades to pastel,

We stitched every hue.

In case you're still doubtful

We love what we do.

We'll be back next month,

The same time and place too,

To do it again 

With our passionate crew.
