Our December Gathering

Our brunch gathering at the Carss Park cafe for Christmas was a great time. All our Sydney members were able to attend.

Having finished Jenny's Twister quilt it was raffled and won by Karen W.

We filled our day with a very active time at home finishing off all sorts of bits and pieces.

There was lots of active discussion over block designs for our next quilt and two people actually finished their blocks to give me.

This is a photo of a sampler quilt we completed in about 2010.

Work was done on bordering the twin quilts that used Linda's Rings fabric.

Progress was made on Heather's Purple Butterflies quilt. Karen G started sewing the strips together on Friday and this was continued then I was able to attach the first border so that the quilt (all on the bias) does not stretch along the edges before we get back to it.

We now start 2017 with only 4 quilts on the go - Jenny's Churn Dash, Linda's Rings (twin quilts), and Heather's Purple Butterflies. Then there is our new sampler quilt to add to our list. Things slowed down a bit over the last two years as we received quite a few donated quilts to finish off. I think we are now back to choosing from our lucky dip basket when we need a new challenge.

Thanks for a great year.
