THIS SHOULD HAVE BEEN DONE FOR SATURDAY

It was my group's day on Saturday, but I was so tired at the end of the day, I didn't get the photo's sorted for here, only just done them on Sunday evening. Sorry folks, but hope you think they are worth waiting for.
So, first picture is showing you the blocks made by the ladies for our little competition we have, The Block Lotto, they have to make a block in the theme set the previous month, the one with the most votes gets to choose some of the blocks to take home and make into whatever they wish to make, this time we only had 7 blocks - shame on them - so it was split 4 and 3 blocks. Can you spot the winners?
This is showing you the assorted sizes of the Dear Jane blocks they are making, 4" 6" and 8" you should see me when I have to print them all out!!"! Then again, maybe you shouldn't!! Also on the boards are the few table runners that got almost finished, they are the baskets, very pretty I think you have to agree...
Last month we made Table mats, the next two pictures are what two of the ladies made, I wonder if they made a complete set or just the one?
Kate made this handy baby bag for a friend of her friend's cousin!! it was a long complicated mix, but regardless, the bag was super, six small pockets round the outside and big and roomy inside, well done Kate
You have seen this before I know...
This Quilt belongs to Bridget, she is Suzanne's friend, now can you believe she is new to quilting? She has taken to it like a duck to water, she made this quilt before she went on a month's holiday to Thailand, Quilted it in a week. Fabulous it is, absolutely fabulous...
Sylvia went to a class and made this gorgeous scrappy Log Cabin, I just love it as Log Cabin is my favourite patchwork of all;
Suzanne won on the Block Lotto and made this Quilt from the blocks she won. She actually made it for her sister - Annette - who loves green, she was thrilled with it;
it is on here twice as I want you to see she actually chopped up some of the blocks she won - mine was included in the chopping - and put them as a border, neat idea Suzanne, well done, Suzanne too is a beginner quilter. She is my elder daughter too. I am very proud of the two of them.
So there we are, not a lot on our Showtime table this month - they have been told off! - I am hoping there will be more for you to see next time, which will be MAY.

I think it was worth the wait to see these photos. I love the green quilt as green is my favorite color for fabrics! I liked all those flower lotto blocks and would have been hard-pressed to find a favorite.

I didn't mind waiting, it was worth it. Love the green quilt and the log cabin. I would have picked three totally different blocks to the ones that won but , of course, I am only seeing them in a photo. So now you have two daughters to raid your stash!
