Welcome our new 2014 Committee

Check out the information about:    2014 Hunters Hill Quilt Show
Friday, August 8th to Sunday, August 10th: 10 am to 4 pm
Opening night: Thursday, August 7th at 7pm

Thursday 13th combined business and sewing.   We applauded the outgoing 2013 HHQ Committee and welcome in the new committee for 2014.   

It was with much pleasure that I welcomed Elva and 'pinned' her with the President's badge.  Ailsa's newsletter will have all the details and the pictures.   

After 7 years of being on the HHQ committee in various roles,  it is time for me to take a back seat.  The last three years as President has been a special time - and I send out a huge thank you to everyone for the support, friendship,inspiration and many fun times.  

And also for my wonderful quilt  .....  I have already worked out how I'm going to quilt it - just need some of that precious thing called 'time'

Show and Tell

Our new community coordinator, Susan H., showed this 'blue lattice' community contribution made/finished by Helena and her team

And a new wagga has been added the wagga stash,  using hexagons from the 'cupboard' on a wool background.  

Susan H.  contributed two more cute cot quilts for the Grace Centre 

Heather showed us the quilt she made as a challenge with her on-line group: it was a 'sort of ' mystery quilt as rules were given each month for each block.  

This fabulous blue quilt,  my memory fails me, but I think it is Marie K's (someone correct me if I've got it wrong) and fabulously quilted by Susan St J.

And last but not least - our 2014 Contemporary  raffle quilt,  'Metropolis'   - all ready to go to our  'professional photographer '.

That is all  ...   I'll continue to be a Blog contributor,  but over time I'm sure that Elva and Helena will contribute.   If anyone else is interested,  just let Alison K.and I know, and it will be organised.

Have a good week  ...   Cheers Iris
