Saturday 20 Jan 2007

Another hot January day - we only had five at quilting today - Kerry, Kath, Joan, Helen and Peg and we had a visit from Gai D who came up for lunch.
Joan came with her completed quilt she had made for a friend - check out the scalloped boarders (which she said she could not have done without Pats help) - it is just magnificent. Joan was also putting together her Thimbleberries "Sunrise Quilt". Kath finished her cushions off from the last Saturday - three of them and then she made and completed a heat bag for one of her nieces - Kath was very pleased and they were all just lovely. Kerry finished off her quilt "Cottagewood Dreaming" a Kerry Swain pattern which she did at Nundle a couple of years ago - stunning.......and then she continued on with a "Kerry Klintworth" design - 5inch squares and then a random stitchery throughout - Love - Family - Home - Friends etc stitched in green on tea stained homespun....the squares were made up of reds, browns and greens - 'very nice'.
Helen was doing a shaggy quilt out of what she called 'leftovers' from her flannel stash - very happy quilt, I am not sure who the lucky owner will be of this quilt.
I did a quilt top - squares 5inch from the Moda Chocolat range and added the occasional piece of large coffee rick rack on the diagonal on random squares....(Kerry Swain creation) hope to finish it off with a deep red peeper and a four inch boarder .
So that was the end of our very enjoyable Saturday - as always had a great lunch from the Palms Restaurant.

VERY impressed with Joan's scalloped borders. Is she giving lessons? Lovely quilt. Totally envious of the beautiful quilting. Hi to everyone. Ros.
