Two Cold Days in August

This month we decided to have two Saturdays quilting and both were quite cold days. Over the time I was joined by Karen W., Elaine, Carol, Linda, and our newest member Valda.

Valda started by adding a label to and removing tacking from our latest completed quilt. We have called it Lilac Garden. It was inspired by Heather's focus fabric and a 2-4-6 block. Note the appliqued flowers that cover a tiny hole in one of the squares!

Lilac Garden - won by Karen G.
 Congratulations to Karen G on her win! Her contribution to the group finances will go to charity in lieu of the quilt if she chooses to keep it. Otherwise the quilt will go to charity.

We drew our next lucky dip block and to our surprise  it was another of Jeanette's fabric donations and of course another complex pointy block. I've made the block and created instructions which I have emailed out to you all. Fabric will come in the mail soon.

Karen W. is now visiting our mutual friend in Malanda Qld who introduced us to Artist Trading Cards. She has taken up the next 9 ATCs in exchange for 9 that were sent down earlier this year. If you'd like to swap some please just let me know as I still have a few swaps from the Atherton group.

With the help of all the workers over the two days we have progressed with some of our other quilts and some can be seen in the photos above. Perhaps by the end of the year we'll have a few more completed. Thank you all for your hard work.
