SATURDAY WAS BUSY

OK I know I am running late - story of my life just recently - here for you are some pictures of my group's day on Saturday. Most of them have opted to make small versions of Dear Jane Quilt's which I have designed for them. Five ladies don't wish to make it so I had to come up with something else for them. To say I was running round like a headless chicken is putting it mildly.  I was totally whacked when I got home.

Marian and Jose sorting the bits out for their Placemat/Quilt...
Gail and Michelle concentrating on the Dear Jane pattern pieces...
8" blocks on Point for the Dear Jane - from various ladies...
top two are 4 1/2" squares YIKES!
lower ones are 6" blocks - that's more like it!!!
all from various ladies again...
Some of the ladies managed to complete their wall hangings
which were done as an on-going project last year...
Enjoy the show...



this one was
her first Quilt
her first time of Quilting - all by hand
Her first completed item
Well done indeed the quilting was fabulous on this one...
Strange, but we had a LOT of bags on show Saturday!!!!
these made by my Suzanne, well done Suz...
What a face!!!
Neil helps out where ever he can bless him.
He was quite taken with this bag - it was funny reading all the bits on it...
this is the other side of above bag...
Unususal bag...
Quilt made by other daughter - Annette...
this one too - this is ready for quilting now...
gorgeous, I love it...
This was made by Sylvia,
at a class by Tilly - who -
used to come to my classes, but now teaches herself...
Finally a Quilt for a Soldier
from a lady from another group...
thank you so much it will be passed on.
