The Cold Can't Stop Us

It was extremely cold when we met at the hall last Wednesday for patchwork day ... slippers were quite fashionable and the kettle was boiling for warming cuppas.

Fay had been busy at home making a gorgeous machine cover and matching thread catcher which she brought along to show and tell. Candlewicking was Fay's chosen path for the day as she worked on the next block for her quilt.

Kerry was very busy preparing and basting this adorable quilt for a new little girl.

Some fine tuning from Sandra had this dazzling car quilt top ready and roaring to go.

Her grandson will be racing to sleep curled up under his car quilt.

Sandra then started sorting and cutting 5 1/2" squares for a scrappy star quilt.

Narelle brought along her SAHRobin quilts and attached the bindings to both.

Then it was piecing and pressing to complete block 4 of her 'Because I Said So' BOM.

Crochet squares by the box full. Margaret spent her time ending off threads and adding to this snuggly knee rug.

Sweet colours Margaret.

Stay warm and keep those fingers stitching till next time :)
