Show & Tell and Upcoming Events

Happy Friday everybody!  Hope all are looking forward to the weekend and maybe like myself getting some work done on my two quilts for our Happy Exhibition!

I had a bit of a shock when I looked over the form and saw the date required in Dublin is May 8th.  If anyone needs entry forms please drop us a line and Fiona will send you the details. Thank you Fiona for all your hard work on this, so looking forward to it!  The exhibition itself runs from May 25th to June 26th with the opening being held on June 4th so mark your diaries.


There is lots going on for National Quilting week so check out Quilt Ireland website or Facebook page for more details.  The IPS (Irish Patchwork Society) have some exhibitions between now and then on the go.  In conjunction with the Northern Ireland Patchwork Guild, the Hand Across the Border exhibit is opening in City Hall, Belfast in May and then travelling to the Botanic Gardens in Dublin for June.  The theme is Reflections.

If you are in Limerick there are two IPS exhibits on during National Quilting week.  The Mid-Western Branch exhibit "Local Landscapes" runs from the 2nd to the 6th June and quilts from the EQA exhibit Movement will be on display from to1st June to the 14th June.

It's been a while since we had a bit of Show and Tell.  Check out these group shares from Flickr, Facebook, and Instagram!

Thanks everyone for the house blocks - they are looking fantastic up on the design wall, so good I might not want to take them down!
