.........AND OUR QUILTING FUN CONTINUES

It was a pretty normal group today. No particular surprises, so girls simply got down to work and fun.
Some discussion of our 'challenge' to put together a range of aprons for events such as our big shows. In the end we decided to take a vote for 'decorated' versus 'minimalist,classy' style. Appliqué and decorated won the vote, so it's up to each group to decide. When it comes to using them, you can have a choice. What could be fairer? Thanks to Gil for offering to do the binding on any that people want done. She also cut all the binding strips. I think she's going to have lots of customers! Good on you Gil.

More squares for The Lord Mayor's Picnic Quilt were handed in, and they're looking great. It could be very exciting putting it together. Susan will get a lovely surprise when she returns. Remember 9th October is the due date for returning them. Have fun!

Not a lot more to report except the show and tell session. 
This week we had a lovely little cot quilt by Iris, called "Elephants On Parade" I believe



Next came a gorgeous piece by Helen, which she says she's been working away at for some time and finally finished.



The following spectacular one is by Jenny and quilted by Grace. It's called "Stringy Stars"



Finally a beautiful top which has been much admired, by our new member Hayley. She has lost one if the leaves last week by the way, in case someone picked it up and put it away. Just let Hayley know. It's going to make a gorgeous quilt Hayley!



So that it for now. Have a lovely weekend and week ahead. Till we meet again........
