25th September

We started as a smallish group, but numbers improved as the day wore on. School holidays require grandparent duties from time to time. Lots of busy quilting was going on, and Betty sandwiching and pinning her latest design with a little help from her friends.

A few girls were putting finishing touches to their "Fantasea" blocks in time for delivery on 9th October. Susan and her team will no doubt start putting it together shortly after that. Can't wait to see how it comes out.

We had a visit from Karl Ryves. He was very pleased that a few of us visited his house last Tuesday to view the quilt collection there. We brought lunch to share and enjoyed sitting on the back verandah chatting and talking quilts and other things. He would like more girls to visit, so let me know if you would be interested and I'll set it up.

Alison has let everyone know that the book of the 2014 Hunters Hill Quilt Show is finished and a preview of it can be viewed on line (see link in previous post or in your email). The physical book will be available by October 10th, so we thought we might wait to see it before orders are taken. Iris has kindly offered to handle the ordering for the group, so let her know if you wish to purchase your own copy. The more that are ordered of course means the cheaper it will be. Thanks Alison and thanks Iris.

Akiko came 7th in her division of the half marathon! Well done! Just talking about it made the rest of us breathless. 

Kathy has told us that there will indeed be a fabric sale coming up. Carolyn will let us know when so we can all come along prepared! Looking forward to that!

Thanks to Kerry who is going to search out a larger coffee plunger for the group. I'm afraid I failed to find one the correct size!

And now at last we come to Show and Tell.

The first was a gorgeous quilt by Sheila called 'Fractured' and a lovely bag with felt and embroidery.

Next comes an almost finished black white and red beauty by Janet. Looks like only the binding to go.

Finally a couple of shots of Gil's spectacular quilt which she thinks she'll call "Frida" for obvious reasons. I've included a close up of the lady herself as well.

Hope you enjoyed them. Cheers everyone, and have a lovely weekend. Let's hope the rain doesn't hang around for too long !
