Quilt of the week

Here is something to view other than a bra.
A quilt from hand dyed fabric, free motion quilted with valdani variegated cotton . The pattern is adapted from a Quilters Newsletter Magazine called Goose on the Pond. Not the clearest photo. Taken at the Gin Gin Courthouse Gallery in April 2005.
Made by Ruth, 2004

The Bra competition is over

The winning bra submitted by Colleen in memory of a family member.
A very deserved winner.
Over $240 was raised by this competition . Not bad for a very small place.
The movie was fun to watch, the food and wine good to consume. The competitions were fun and the Cancer Fund benefits by over $1000 in one night.
Thank you to all who contributed. Kerry is sure to be happy.

All the bras displayed on the night.

Now we can get back to quilting and patchwork.
Ruth went to the Queensland Quilt Show yesterday also and was once again inspired and awed by some of the quilts on display.
Saw the Quilt Diva quilts made by Bundaberg Quilters on display down there.
Dont forget the change of day to Friday 3 November.

By all reports the judging is going well with quite a good response so far. Remember it closes Friday 20 October at the Girls Night In at 6.30pm.
Hope to have some photoes of the winning bra and some of the fun posted later.

Bras AGAIN !

22 Bras at last count. Judging commences Saturday 14 Oct at the Mt Perry Axemen and Sawyers Woodchop Day. Winners announced at the Girls Night In on Friday 20th.

Here are 2 clever ideas to make you think about which one to vote for. Don't forget you can vote as many times as you like as long as you put in a
gold coin for each vote. There are plenty more to choose from than these few featured here.
Make sure you visit the Post Office to vote.

A play on words.

Self explanatory.

Happy viewing and voting.

Bras, and more bras

Twelve decorated bras and more to come yet.
Have a good look at this one when you go to vote.
Needs time to read all the good advice and time to feel the love that has been bestowed on this one.

New Spider Bra

An entry in the decorated bra competition. Don't know if it would be enjoyable wearing this one.
Designed by a young male for the competition.
Well done.

Quilts on Display

Last weekend saw the Mt Perry Annual Art Show held in the Shire Hall. Also on display were quilts and bags from Mt Perry Quilters Ruth, Narelle and Lisa. This hand appliqued quilt of houses was completed by Margaret who continues to patchwork and quilt since moving to Bundaberg. Each house has a different embelishment including cats, chickens, flowers and a wheel barrow.
