She is best known for her series of 6 quilts celebrating the work of Australian Artist Margaret Preston. Merelyn has won  many awards for her quilting including 4 Best of Show at the Sydney Quilt Show.

Demonstration : Kathy Doughty / Rulers 

"60 Degrees and More - Break out of the square routine and try working with 60 degrees!  Hexagons, diamonds, triangles and more make up interesting designs that look hard but are really easy.  We will also examine how to let colour and fabric designs do the work to make the blocks exciting.  

Kathy Doughty will be demonstrating using the Hex N More and Side Kick rulers by Jaybird Quilts.  

Feel free to bring along any templates you may already have to familiarise yourself with any differences.  There will be rulers available for sale on the day."

Guest Shop : Judy from : Busy Thimbles

Afternoon Tea -  beverages will again be provided by the Guild.

 Block of the Quarter

 Don't forget your "Square in a Square"  blocks, they are due at this meeting.
