Thursday 13th combined business and sewing.   We applauded the outgoing 2013 HHQ Committee and welcome in the new committee for 2014.   

It was with much pleasure that I welcomed Elva and 'pinned' her with the President's badge.  Ailsa's newsletter will have all the details and the pictures.   

After 7 years of being on the HHQ committee in various roles,  it is time for me to take a back seat.  The last three years as President has been a special time - and I send out a huge thank you to everyone for the support, friendship,inspiration and many fun times.  

And also for my wonderful quilt  .....  I have already worked out how I'm going to quilt it - just need some of that precious thing called 'time'


Show and Tell

Our new community coordinator, Susan H., showed this 'blue lattice' community contribution made/finished by Helena and her team

And a new wagga has been added the wagga stash,  using hexagons from the 'cupboard' on a wool background.  


Susan H.  contributed two more cute cot quilts for the Grace Centre 


Heather showed us the quilt she made as a challenge with her on-line group: it was a 'sort of ' mystery quilt as rules were given each month for each block.  



This fabulous blue quilt,  my memory fails me, but I think it is Marie K's (someone correct me if I've got it wrong) and fabulously quilted by Susan St J.


And last but not least - our 2014 Contemporary  raffle quilt,  'Metropolis'   - all ready to go to our  'professional photographer '.




That is all  ...   I'll continue to be a Blog contributor,  but over time I'm sure that Elva and Helena will contribute.   If anyone else is interested,  just let Alison K.and I know, and it will be organised.

Have a good week  ...   Cheers Iris
