The first meeting of the newly formed Lincolnshire Quilting group LINQS met at The Coach and Horses in Billinghay on Saturday 4th September. Hosted by Sheila, it was a lively affair with lots of questions, suggestions and ideas for the type of projects we are all considering. Mary hit the nail on the head when she said that there were “no shrinking violets”! Some of the ladies brought along their “work in progress” which was wonderful to see while others brought copies of David Hockney books for the rest of us to browse through.
The idea of this challenge is not to hide your work away or be secretive about ideas, techniques etc. It’s more about discovering together and encouraging and nurturing the ideas and work of others. The following photos were taken at the gathering and show some of the quilts that have already started taking shape.
