TWENTY ONE DAYS TILL SHOWTIME! 21/7/16

Yes, it's rushing towards us, but the busy and energetic show committee girls are on the job! 
Another meeting this morning to fine-tune arrangements, and sort out details.
Keep filling in those rosters everyone. Plenty of jobs to do once the show is on, and it will be "all hands on deck!"

Welcome to a new member Sarah from Hunters Hill. Sarah came and met with a few of us, and will return next week with something to work on. Lovely to see new members arriving!

SHOW AND TELL

Just a couple of things to show this week. Most people are busy with show stuff rather than finishing other projects!

Yours truely showed the finished quilt top I've been working on for a while now. Great hand project, and genuine scrappy one. I can recommend it as a project, very satisfying. I chose blues and browns, but the original pattern 'Candied Hexagons' by Kerry Dear, was in reds and bright colours. 



The next one was shown by Hayley (welcome back) with this fascinating pattern. Hayley explained what she plans to do with the 'holes' between the blocks, as you can see in the second shot. This is to add a little zing of colour to the muted quilt. Should look great!

                                   


                                           

Well, must rush. So many things to do and SO LITTLE TIME!
Cheers, Elva
