Wednesday was just one of those days, everyone seemed to be talking, laughing and just jollying around, so many projects on the go and all being busily worked on.
Mind you, as soon as the camera comes out they all stop chatting, no-one wants an open mouth pic on the post!
Karen very kindly gave an impromptu mini class on the construction of her Sudoku quilt using 9 different fabrics,
Rose Smith has a youtube video here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g9_t5DlEhss
with comprehensive instructions here
but if you really want a quilting sudoku challenge, try this one from Moda Bake Shop, http://www.modabakeshop.com/2015/03/sudoku-quilt.html
Julie, who is also a member of the Mooloolah Valley quilting group bought her mystery flimsey along to share,
Helen T also bought her finished Mystery along
Fae was working on sandwiching another quilt, she already had the cute little bears fabric but a quick trip to the fabric shop was needed to snaffle the other fabrics, including a nicely matched backing.
Pat bought her machine along to work on the quilting of her current cutie, 'Catlady', a Coton + Steel pattern by Sarah Watts, Pat was convinced to stay in the main room with the rest of us and it was 'quilt central' most of the day, everyone popped along for a look and a chat.
Karen has been stitching little frock and nicker sets for her newest Grandie, using a Cabbage Patch doll pattern (who remembers those, the dolls and the patterns, the patterns were such a boon to stitching little things for bubbies all those years ago)
Remember that cute little apron Karen made for another Grandie? well lucky lass now has a matching little tote.
Marie has been stitching up a storm,
Jackie shared her latest with us. Lovely vibrant colours, 2.5" strips crosscut and sashed.
Letitia is growing her longarm quilting business and specialises in quilting all over designs as opposed to pantograph patterns that go edge to edge in a repeat pattern. She prefers to quilt a design that complements your quilt without overpowering the work done by the quilt owner.
If you have the odd flimsey sitting around wishing it was a quilt, speak to Letitia, her rates are most reasonable and she can be reached at:

Step 2 reveal of the Mystery quilt, lots of little baggies of finished strips were on display.
Wendy handed out Step 2 instructions and gave a little demo, there were some sneaky questions she managed to answer gardedly so as not to give the game away.
Links to Step 1 instructions can be found in the sidebar.
Sheila is spending some time with the Grandies, took a trip to the wildlife park, but hey, not a Grandie in sight, could be something to do with the crocodile she is holding, reckon we will all be doing a little surreptitious finger counting when she gets back!
