We received the latest issue of the Template: there was a mention for our work on Fidgety Quilts.
The hall was buzzing with activity.
Robyn J and Alison were preparing the backing for the 2018 Traditional Raffle Quilt. The blocks are all together, hand pieced by Robyn, and quilting will start soon.
Narelle and her 'Orange' Group were working on this cute block for a community quilt:
Marie G, was the machinist as the 'Blue' Group put these blocks into a quilt top:
Show and Tell was all for Community .... thank you!
