News from Thursday 22/8/2013

Our visitor today was Rhonda T,  who came to collect 12 quilts that we made for the young people in a school in Nepal.   Rhonda told us about the work that is being achieved there by a small group of Australians who care, especially her friend Nola who works tirelessly for the children and the school.   Rhonda was delighted with our quilts and it felt good to make our contribution.

This is  Kathy D's artistic display of the 12 quilts:

and this is my rather boring display !

We've been 'published' again !    Blue on Blue'  our 2012 Raffle Quilt has a fabulous 'double page' spread in the 2014 Quilter's diary.  Get one at Material Obsession.

Coming Events:  a reminder about the Northbridge Quilt Show this weekend and the Epping Quilt Show over the Weekend of 6 and 7 September.   The location details etc. are in last week's blog.

The birthday celebrations for the last two weeks in August belong to Betty and Ellen.  Betty is obviously enjoying her birthday during her holiday and Ellen will be celebrating next week.

Show and Tell:    Judy and Kathy D had great quilts for us to admire. 

Judy's 'squares'

And Kathy's two latest creations:  octagons and a new template for wedding rings,  which Kathy tells us is s simple and easy to use.
Floating octagons

Wedding Ring in subtle grey shades

And look at the finished 2014 Contemporary Raffle Quilt ....  Grace and Jessica - well done !   It is fabulous !      

And last but not least,  this is the perfect camellia that was on our morning tea table  ......

I will be away for the next 3 weeks,  but Judy and the committee will take care of thing on Thursdays and Ailsa and Alison will be looking after the blog.

Have a great three weeks and enjoy,     Cheers Iris
