School Holiday Numbers

The only explanation for our comparatively small turn-out today was the fact that grandkids are still on school holidays! In any case we worked on, and in fact welcomed a new member. Actually Jonquil is an ‘old’ member from some 10 or 12 years ago who now finds herself ready to get back to serious quilting again after recent retirement! Welcome back Jonquil. We’re very glad to have you aboard!

Speaking of grandkids - Meg has just become a great-grandma for the first time! Congrats Meg.

Not a lot of news so early in the year, but a few bits and pieces of Show and Tell.

Jenny showed these two lovely little baby quilts for the Grace Centre. Very cute designs and nice backs as well. Thanks Jenny.

Jenny has the dye cutter for this Holly hobbie design if anyone’s interested. Makes it a lot easier.
And the back.......


Second baby one......

And the back........

Sheila showed us a lovely quilt which isn’t destined for anyone in particular. Just a design Sheila liked and wanted to have a go at.


And the backing is very interesting also. Apparently it came from Quiltsmith, but was purchased quite a while ago so it may not be available there any longer. There was quite a bit of interest in it from the group.


So there you have it for another week folks. Stay cool in this nasty heat!
See you next Thursday.
Cheers, Elva
