Thursday, 26/9/2013 Update

New Member:  On Thursday we welcomed Sheila who is now an official HHQ member.   Sheila,  we hope you enjoy our group.

Birthday updates:  as I mentioned before, September is a busy birthday month, this week Helena, Ros, Susan D and Deb L all celebrated.

Events coming up ...
This weekend, 28th and 29th September, Cherrybrook Quilters Inc.,  2013 Exhibition at Cherrybrook Uniting Church, New Line Road Cherrybook (opposite Cherrybrook Public School).  10am to 4pm both days.

Campbelltown Quilt Show on 9th and 10 November:  mark the date and I will give a reminder and details closer to the time.

2013 Playing Card Challenge:  all cards have been drawn.  Great response,  though it was mentioned that there wasn't much option !    If you didn't get a card - Jenny has some other special challenges available!

2014 Quilt Show Contemporary raffle quilt is all finished.    It looks fabulous.  Congratulations to Grace and Jessica for the design and to everyone who contributed.

The traditional quilt is now being hand quilted:   Robyn will be happy to hear from the hand quilters in the group.   There is a lot of quilting to be done.

Thanks to Deb L, we had a donation of fabrics and tools:  one of these was a special ruler.  Kathy D. gave us a demo on how best to use the ruler for 1/2 triangles an 1/4 triangles to make sure the bias edges are suitable enclosed and not causing 'wobbly edge' problems.

Show and tell:   lots of interesting work.

Jessica entered her 'Jewels in the Pond' quilt in the Berry competition, One Red Thread, and won second prize.  The detail needs to be seen !

A community donation by Alison and Jessica:   this quilt was put together by Jessica from fabric won by Alison at a previous show - 2008, show I think.

 And Margaret D. had fun putting this together at a retreat, using fabrics from her friend in Fremantle's stash.

I had to add the detail - isn't it a cute block.

Silk from Beryl J.   Mostly from old kimonos.   I've included detail here, as well.

And finally,  but certainly not least,  Kathy D's latest quilt featuring a new range of fabrics by Marcia Derse.

Remember that next week is Community Day.  Meanwhile, have a good week and see you then.   Cheers Iris
