Leslie added some shine to our October Sew Art & Chat with her illustration of foiling techniques...

Using a variety of glues and iron-on applique sheets, she quickly created a sparkly fish, surrounded by bubbles and ready for embellishment... So amazingly simple for such intense impact.

Meanwhile People got busy with their own or Caring & Sharing projects, hand or machine sewing and swapping ideas and tips (not to mention enjoying a tasty bring-a-plate lunch).

Our show and tell this month included some full sized quilts:

And, of course, our Art quilt challenge, which was to create an architecturally-inspired piece, using some supplied fabrics... This was bolstered by some rogue elephants arriving late from last month's challenge.

The next Sew Art & Chat challenge is just one word... RED. That should give you some leeway, so get going on your twelve inch masterpiece.
