Wot Knots Quilting Group

The 'Wot Knots' are one of many satellite groups of Whangarei P&Q. I tagged along to their last meeting, as they were going to have a day making small mosaic wall hangings.

Lynne did a demo for us (that's her completed wall hanging above) and then we were into it.

Bernice chose lovely blues and turquoise for her wall hanging.


Maria's making hers with purple and pink, and Jules is using purples and blues. They're so hard at work I don't think they realised their photo was being taken!

Kath had a multi coloured orange/red/yellow fabric that she thought she would never use in a million years, until Bernice suggested she could make a fire. It really was the most perfect fabric for it. When Kath ironed all the fabric onto her background it looked great. I especially like the starks jumping off the flames.

I was going to make mine in blues but I could not find the silver fabric I wanted for highlights. I know it's somewhere in my sewing room, but I don't know where it's hiding. Anyway I did find gold so had to find fabrics to go with that. Hopefully I will have finished for club day tomorrow, then you can see in show and tell post. You will have to wait till then!

  5. Howdy!
    I'm wondering about the first picture--the silver swirls--how are they adhered to the wall hanging? Actually, I would like to know how everything is adhered, come to think of it! Is it glue stick and then you sewed on top of it or fused on? Is there perhaps an online source I can check out instead of bugging you?
    thanks!
    I was going to ask why everyone's post ends in EQ7 but I just figured it out. EQ7!!!!
