A little late with the blog this week. A busy weekend for me.
A good roll up this week which is always good to see. Margaret D. surprised us with a visit. Carolyn especially was pleased to see her and catch up with her news. She and Margaret have been friends from the very beginning of Hunters Hill Quilters.
Sydney radio ABC has been running a flood appeal for the victims of the recent floods in the Hawkesbury region. A lot of money has been donated by the public. Sandy noticed that they were asking for quilts. Sandy and Alison sorted the quilts from the cupboards ready to donate. Photos of all the quilts had to be sent. Sandy will have some news for us this week hopefully. We can give a total of 16 quilts.
Retreat - Friday 15 October to Sunday 17 October:
Narelle has contacted Kurri Kurri re our retreat this October. The prices will stay the same as last time. Narelle has a printout that she can send you if you would like to have one. A minimum of 20 is required.
To reserve a place, call the TAFE on 4936 0341 and tell them you are from Hunters Hill Quilters and the date of our retreat.
Anything else contact Narelle.
We all know of Kantha stitching. Grace has been doing something slightly different called Kawandi stitching which is a hand-stitched quilt, made from scrap fabric. It is assembled from the outside in. The edges are turned under and stitched together, and batting laid inside.Then quilting proceeds in a spiralling line, about a finger width apart.
Grace has kindly agreed to do a workshop for those who are interested. Akiko also has a nifty little surprise for us as well.
Show and Tell:
A bit light on this week unfortunately. It seems it is a feast or a famine. Thanks to Carolyn and her baby quilts we have 9 to show this week.
Until next week .....
