Quilters with guns - microtag guns, that is!

Putting together CQ's "Diversity" quilt; the theme is "British-ness" as this is for a European Quilt Association exhibition -
Sixty squares of 20cm chosen from the many submitted by CQ members, chosen to work together ... and didn't it take a lot of thought and rearrangement to get the squares to work together!
Those are the microtag guns on the table. They made the putting together possible - using the tags to attach the squares to a sheet of heavyweight Lutradur. Hilary then added basting on the back to make sure the squares didn't shift about. The result is truly "diverse" - see it at the Quilt Museum, 4 May until September.
