Our speaker for November Moira Neale, entertained us with her illustrated talk on "Tuscany in Photographs".
She no longer makes large bed quilts but brought plenty of examples of her current small ones.
She showed us views of Tuscany and alongside were her interpretations in fabric and paint, the background often being achieved by the application of tea bags to old cotton sheets.
Moira explained her method of free machine quilting and her enthusiastic use of quirky colours for the details. We were soon aware that the familiar tree shapes were almost certainly not green!
