More show and tell

 It was fairly quiet on Wednesday night but we enjoyed our sewing night. Sue had finished a Halloween quilt, complete with skeletons attached. Great fabric too! Gotta get some of that candy corn soon...and practise sounding scary...Boo!
 This is Carol's amazing Log Cabin, she was finishing the binding. Isn't it just fabulous! Love the selection of yellows and occasional orange highlight. AND beautifully quilted, too.

Although Helen wasn't there, the adorable little baby jacket was finished last week. It's so delicate with the lacy hem.

another fun night.....

Another Wednesday night has flown by, and here we all were, heads down, hard at work.....

Despite the fact that everyone is looking so serious and industrious, it was actually a fun night, with lots of laughs

Donna worked on her beautiful Rosalie Quinlan 'Scandinavian Rose' stitchery project ~

A few of the ladies had show and tell to share ~

August Challenge

This month we were challenged to make a small quilt about 24 inches in size as there quilts are going to be donated to Cheryll at Blankets of Love. It always surprises me how we all come up with something quite different in our group.
Marg made a beautiful delicately coloured quilt from a fat quarter she had.

Tracee went geometric with beautiful soft minke on the back 

Tania made a fantastic quilt from fabric in her stash

I made 2 quilts because I didn't realise how big the blocks were going to be - from a tutorial on the Missouri Star Quilt shop called Falling/Tumbling Blocks.

Good effort girls!!
