Another Busy Day 26/10/17

Yes, there was the usual active hall full of happy quilters this week.
 More fabric spread on the table from Cheryl’s stash, which seems endless! I’m sure ladies will put it to good use, both in community and other quilt projects. Watch this space....!
Sue D handed out the new rosters for next year! Very efficient Sue. Staying well ahead of the game.
Fill in your preferred dates as soon as you can so that we know each week is taken care of.
We had a lovely message from Laurel, who plans to see us at the Christmas Party (14th Dec) if not before.
Remember that next week is our community day workshop for Days For Girls. Bring your small machine if you can, and we can get stuck in to some serious stitching for this worthy cause. Thank you for your participation everyone.
We had three visitors who came to receive our donation of this year’s quilt for the Lord Mayor’s Picnic. They were overwhelmed by this year’s effort, and no wonder. It was an unusual and outstanding one. Can’t be shown yet, but eventually we will be able to display it on the blog once the Picnic is over. It must be kept secret till then!

In the meantime Iris will put up some shots taken from this week’s busy day. Thanks Iris, and have a lovely weekend everyone.
Cheers, Elva

Robyn S has finished this quilt - made mostly from fabrics she won at a retreat 

the applique detail ..

A top the I put together using spare blocks and left over scraps from Hayley and coordinating fabrics from my stash:  confirms we have similar preferences.  A little bit more applique to be added to the corners.   This will be a community quilt.

and two cute cot quilts:  pastels from a friend of Robyn S and bright circles from Judy G.

A final word from me, the Community Page on the website has been updated.    Check it out.

Happy sewing ...   Iris
