The quilters then met again, cut up the quilts into pieces, mixed up the pieces and sewed them back together! The result is what is called a “fractured quilt”, said Nancy Derheimer, quilter.Featured Artists include, JoAnn Baldwin, Dottie Bilbrey, Rose M. Colllins, Kathy Denny, Nancy Derheimer, Judy Glore, Rita Hellmich, Donna Hermesch, Nancy King, Sue Koors, Janet Meyer, Alice Rust, Jean Schoettmer, Jean Shultz, Jan Wantz, Susan Wilson, and Alice Woodhull.

Winger Akuila Uate, whose last trip to England was with Australia for the 2011 Four Nations Series, scored two tries in Fiji’s 30-14 win over the Irish in the semi-final qualifier on the Gold Coast in 2008 and went one better on Monday night with a hat-trick. But the foundations for the Bati’s 32-14 victory was laid by a dominant pack which thrilled the bulk of the sell-out crowd of 8,872 in Rochdale, which boasts the biggest Fijiian expatriate community outside London. That gave Aston’s men the encouragement they needed and they could have drawn level had second rower Dave Allen managed to take Scott Grix’s pass in a try-scoring position. The chance was lost and Ireland were unable to take advantage of the sin-binning of replacement Eloni Vunakece for persistent infringements six minutes before the interval. Naiqama stretched Fiji’s lead to 12-4 on the stroke of half-time with a penalty and there was no way back for Ireland when second rower Tariq Sims went over for a third try after Grix had failed to take Aaron Groom’s high kick. The floodgates opened as Uate completed his hat-trick and loose forward Korbin Sims also touched down and Naiqama took his goal tally to four from seven attempts. Ireland lost Grix with a leg injury that could see him miss out on the clash with England on his home ground, but they produced a late flurry that gave the scoreline some respect. Winger Damien Blanch went over at the corner four minutes from the end and, in the final move of the match, Hassan forced his way over for a richly-deserved try to which Pat Richards added the goal. Fiji effectively ended Ireland’s World Cup dream for the second time after out-muscling them in a bruising Group A match at a packed Spotland. Press Association The Fijians’ display sent out a message to both England and Australia, whose coaches Steve McNamara and Tim Sheens were in the crowd, that they will be no pushovers in the remaining group games. Ireland, the 500-1 tournament outsiders, were in touch at half-time when they trailed 12-4 but they conceded four second-half tries to suffer an emphatic defeat and will now need to beat England in Huddersfield on Saturday to keep alive their hopes of reaching the knockout stages. The deeply-religious Fijians went into a huddle before kick-off to sing a hymn but there was nothing angelic about their play as they tore into the Irish from the kick-off. The physical onslaught was led by the Sims brothers, who made up half the starting pack and laid the platform for the quicksilver backs to show their pace and class with two tries in a four-minute spell. Uate produced a strong finish to open the scoring on nine minutes and Ireland had barely recovered when full-back Kevin Naiqama beat two flat-footed defenders to cross for a second. Centre Wes Naiqama converted his brother’s try and the Fijians would have been further ahead had veteran skipper Petero Civoniceva managed to get the ball down but he was held on his back over the line. The Pacific Islanders threatened to run away with the game at that stage but the introduction of Manly Sea Eagles forward James Hassan for his debut injected some much-needed resolve into the Irish ranks. Indiscipline then crept into the Fijians’ play and Ireland took advantage to pull back a try through second rower Tyrone McCarthy on 23 minutes.

Nigeria’s Super Eagles meet Iceland on June 22Nigeria’s Super Eagles may not go far in the current World Cup in Russia if the stakes don’t work in their favor if they continue to play like they did with Croatia on Saturday that caused them to lose 2-0.Playing their first match against Croatia, after two of five Africa’s representatives of Egypt and Morocco narrowly lost their matches against their opponents; many Africans had hoped that Michel Obi’s group of youthful players could at least salvage the poor early performances of their continental compatriots in the north which sadly did not materialize.Admittedly, Nigeria had a lot of youthful players, and one writer was forced to write that Nigeria ‘had the advantage if the match turned into a track meet’ in their first match against Croatia but it was not a track meet, the Africans could not rise to the occasion and lost 2-0 in the match.Though it was a match that promised so much but delivered so little to thousands of Africans who had anticipated a miracle as Croatia’s Blazers secured a 2-0 victory over Nigeria to lead in Group D.“The Super Eagles’ youth and athleticism were expected to provide some exciting scoring chances. Croatia’s experienced midfield was thought to provide some entertaining possession play. But neither came to the fore Saturday in Kaliningrad,” one writer wrote. How could Nigeria not realize that playing the ball around the field is not the ultimate goal of the World Cup?This is how Croatia scored their first goal: Luka Modric sent a beautiful corner into the 6-yard box that was flicked to the back post where Mario Mandzukic was waiting. He got his head on the ball, but Oghenekaro Etebo’s back leg knocked it into the net for an own goal in the 32nd minute.The second goal against Nigeria was highly debated. It was in the 71st minute when Nigeria’s William Ekong wrapped up a Croatian player (Mandzukic) as he jumped in the air for a header in the 6-yard box and the referee awarded Croatia a penalty award for the foul. Ekong attracted a yellow card for the rough play. The call was not accepted well by Nigeria. However, Croatia increased their score 2-0 when Luka Modric converted the penalty kick. Croatia is now top of the group.Nigeria’s next match is on June 22 against Iceland. Iceland had drawn their first game (1-1) against favorites Argentina on Saturday and should tell you how much the challenge Nigeria will face on June 22 at the Volgograd Arena at 6 pm. If Nigeria does not increase in their offensive attacks in their remaining encounters, there is no way they can make any further impact in the tournament and they may end their campaign on a sorrowful note.Their Group member of Iceland, Argentina, and Croatia is a very tough team of competitors and without much excuses, we hope Nigeria will approach their next game, which should be without saying, in an attempt to change their chances for the better to go far in the tournament.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
