Show n Tell and Progress

Another Wednesday rolls around as we gather to sew, chat and have a cuppa.

Sandra brough along her finished 9 patch to show ...

and was hand stitching the binding down to finish off this lovely horsey quilt.

Ruth was busy auditioning fabris to make more stratas.

Margaret was busy working on more of her beautiful cushions.

Fay is working on her second version of this stunning BOM for her daughter.

Kerry made progress on some embroidery ... Narelle was working away on some 1/2" hexie flowers ... Patty popped in for a visit at lunch time and shared some news about an arts/craft van and workshops coming to our area during the year. We hope Di enjoyed her first visit with the group ... we certainly enjoyed seeing all her gorgeous quilts she brought along for a show n tell.

Look forward to seeing everyone back next month on the 23rd March.

First Patchwork Day for 2011

Yay! Our first get together for the year finally arrived.

Some of the ladies brought show and tell. This stunning quilt was made by Fay and she's keeping this one.

Margaret has been making more cushions. She has been wanting to make one with a pram design and this one has all the gorgeous old world charm.

Kerry brought along her hand stitchery and made good progress.

Ruth has been colourfully creative and had this beautiful rainbow top to show.
Narelle was able to take her hexagon top home in two pieces instead of three with a few more green hexies added.

Next day out is only a fortnight away on the 23rd of February. See you there.
