Thursday 22nd June

First day of the QuiltNSW Show at their new location in Darling Harbour,  so the number of quilters in Fairland Hall was greatly reduced.    Elva was visiting the show,  so Judy headed up 'News time' and Iris on Blog.

First, congratulations to Grace - 2nd prize in the Modern Quilt Section of the QuiltNSW show,  and also to all our other entrants - Helena, Kathy D, Karen M, Carolyn and Jessica.



Judy had a few housekeeping updates:
  • If you are going to the Retreat in September,  remember to call Blackheath and book your room
  • Still need quilting volunteers for the traditional raffle quilt
  • Don't forget to ensure that your name is on the Morning Tea List -  twice a year each.
  • Committee meeting next Thursday morning at 9.30am
Then,  lots for 'Show and tell'

Robyn S and I have finally finished the blocks in Adrienne's William Morris quilt.  I was just the 'cutter-outer',  but Robyn did all the stitching.   Robyn and Adrienne both have enviable skills with machine applique - bring your magnifying glasses.      It looked fabulous on the design wall.



Robyn Jo was just finishing the binding on this quilt:  mostly if not all Japanese fabrics, with lots of clever hand quilting.  Quote, 'Just something to do in the caravan ... '




Gill was pinning this fun children's quilt ...


the camel is fun ....



and I spotted this work by Judy G.     Judy is working on a Megan Manwaring quilt at Material Obsession and this is just one very small part of a quilt-full of clever fussy cutting and applique.


Another good day ...    have a fun sewing week,    Cheers Iris
