Kaleidoscope Quilts Update

Most of the kaleidoscope quilts are finished. Now for the hanging and unveiling of the hard work .
September 5 they will be displayed in the Mt Perry Pat Augustine Centre.
Here's a sneak preview of one of them.

This is an early photo of the half kaleidoscope pieces. After some necessary alterations .

Most of the finished quilt. You cannot see the top border piece ( went missing in action)

The gallery hours are Tuesday mornings, Wednesday ,Thursday and Friday afternoons. Contact Perry Shire Council for more details. Should be well worth a visit.

One Month to Go

We were so busy sewing and basting on Friday that we almost forgot to take any photos of the works in progress. Here are a couple of photos of the last two ladies to leave.
Narelle's was all sandwiched and ready for quilting. She has hit a few stumbling blocks with the quilting and has gone with free motion of a jungle type leaf repeated over the quilt.
Kerry got her hexagons altogether and is ready to sew some borders around to enhance her very ship shape creation. Sorry about the lighting, the late afternoon sun was bursting through.
One more patchwork day before we get to hang the quilts.
