We are a diverse group with a variety of experience and quilting related interests and it is hoped that this will come through in the postings. This blog will feature different guild members commenting on their favourite quilty subjects and we hope that you will enjoy the variety of opinions expressed.

Earlier this year, Glenda Kirkiridis of Amafu Fabrics
http://www.amafu.co.za/ instigated a Block Swop amongst the Tollgate members.
It started off with  9 quilters  and then Glenda added another 9 quilters in a second group - and then a third group was formed with another 9 quilters.

These are some of the quilts that came from the Flower Power Project run at Tollgate Quilters Guild.

 This wall hanging was made by Janet Subban. It was hand stitched in blanket stitch and then machine quilted by Amafu Studio.

This quilt was made by Nazeema Noor Mahomed
