The forecast said very heavy rain for Thursday. This didn't deter 16 brave members from arriving this week. As we were not expecting too many Grace and I arranged the tables in a long line which worked out well allowing for groups to interact more with each other.
Ruby Quilt Blocks:
These should all be in by now. Grace has a plan for the quilt which she will start shortly.
Show Quilt Deadline:
Entries for your show quilts are due by Thursday 12 May. A hard copy of your quilt is preferable. Otherwise a digital copy can be used.
Narelle has done a huge amount of work chasing venues for our retreat. A big thank you Narelle. The long and short of it is Kurri Kurri is the only place that ticks all the boxes. We are looking at September/October for this year.
Elva, Carolyn, Grace and I met with members of Council on Tuesday to view the Bicentennial Quilt which had been taken off the wall in the Town Hall and seemingly disappeared. We were relieved to find that in fact it has been very well cared for and stored. The colours have perhaps faded a little but the quilt looks great. It is an amazing historical piece for the Hunters Hill Community.
The museum is working on hanging the quilt in July/August together with The Kelly's Bush quilt and the Coat of Arms which Judith Burgess made. This will coordinate with our show so people coming to our show will be able to follow through into the museum to see the quilt closer up.
Show and Tell:
10 Bay quilts from Carolyn and one from Jenny
