City to Surf first: Akiko, with her Hunters Hill Quilt Show Flyer, was a front runner at the city to surf, running fast to get back to her Quilting Waitressing job. Congratulations Akiko.
The raffle was drawn by Narelle: a pretty large bag of raffle slips.
The winners were very much 'in-house' with Ros's cousin coming first and choosing Licquorice Allsorts and second was Robyn James's daughter Lisa, who received her mum's design - Circles of the Past.
But the BIG winner was Helena: a clear choice. Both the Viewers and the Members voted for Helena 's 'My MO BOM Journey'. Congratulation Helena .. a very popular decision (and I didn't have a full picture !!) .
Elva and Meg took time to say a huge thankyou to everyone who was involved in the organisation and the sheer work involved in putting together a three day quilt show:
A beautiful story and picture to end the post: while I was quilting in the Stitching Lounge two little girls (10 year old twins) were watching me intently. We chatting about what I was doing and then I asked if they would like to try ... the picture says it all
Lots to chat about on Thursday ... enjoy a few days of rest and gentle sewing .. Iris

A showcase of five quilts by the Quilters of Tomorrow: this is Lilly's quilt from kids corner.
And some more snapshot of the great quilts on display:
Can't show too many quilts ... visitors need to come and experience them for themselves.
Come and enjoy ...

Full tables in the 'Quilt Cafe' ... quilters now skilled waitresses! Book your table for Saturday and Sunday ! Scones with jam and cream, sandwiches, home made goodies and tea or coffee.
and of course the many creative and varied exhibition quilts: a couple more of our prize winning quilts.
More to come ... Saturday and Sunday ! The best part is that a major donation will go to research work into the mental health of our youth - no better investment for the future.
