Patchwork Day Success

 Wednesday May 15th found us at the Hall for a day of sewing, showing and catch up. Fay has been busy sewing her Mystery Jelly Roll quilt. Definately not what the Mystery Quilt designer had planned but Fay is very happy with this quilt.

 She also had time to make this aboriginal print themed quilt for her husband for his birthday the previous Monday. Amazing what this girl can accomplish amidst taking care of the property, cattle, horses and her family.
 Here Kerry is busy working away on her Jelly Roll Mystery, it certainly looks vastly different to Fay's quilt. Ooops, I forgot to take a photo of the works in progress.
 Fay is busy working on another curvy quilt for a granddaughter who loves Pink. Amazing how the addition of the contrast bias changes the entire quilt.
I think Sandra may have been inspired by this, she is on a scrap busting and WIP mission as she had pieces from years ago with her  in an attempt to jog her memory as to how to proceed. A quick lesson on half square triangles an easy way and we may see some further progress next patchwork day.
Ruth has finished her grandbaby quilt, ready in time for the due date in June.

A date to remember is the Bundaberg Quilters Competitive Quilt Show. Friday night 9 August is the Awards Night, Saturday 10 and 11 August is the show open to the public. If you wish to compete you must be a financial member of the Bundaberg Quilters. Contact Patty or Ruth for further details.
Next patchwork day is Wednesday 12 June. Hope to see you there.
