Last Quilting Day for 2013: 5/12/2013

A day of activity, with lots of evidence of the skills and generosity of HHQ members.

Community activity:
Frederick, from the City of Sydney New Years Eve Organisation came to collect the Star quilt for the News Years Eve picnic. As well as receiving his own special quilting lesson from Susan H., Frederick shared with us some of the activities that happen to make the New Year's Eve picnic a special time for the kids.

Just two of the many pictures that I have,  Betty and her team have done a fabulous job of putting together our many stars.

and one for fun:  the last minute 'forgotten' label !

Then Grace and her team of shoppers organised the wrapping of the Christmas presents for Stepping Stone House. For another year, the generosity of HHQ members was  magnificent,  and together with the shopping skills of Grace, Ros, Kerry and Helena,  the kids should have a great Christmas celebration. A selection of 7 quilts will also be delivered for new kids in 2014.  The hamper of Christmas food goodies will be filled next week.

Quilts and presents 

Betty delivered the Duck quilt  to the Motor Neuron Association for their early 2014 fund raising event on Thursday afternoon

The 'Duck' Quilt made by the Orange Group (appropriate don't you think ?)


Show and tell 
From Jill for a friend's granddaughter's birthday: she likes blue and the 'brick' design is for her dad who was a bricklayer.   

Judy has almost finished this  'modern' design for a new baby - problem, though, the new baby became two babies !     Judy had to leave early - so I got a preview before show and tell.

And that is all for this week,  but remember next week is Party Week.  See you then.
Cheers Iris
