Chinese Lantern Workshop

Another wonderful workshop presented by Janice this week,  this time on the versatile 'Chinese Lantern' block, and with the help of a few 60 degree rulers we saw some very interesting blocks emerge.  Two new members were concentrating on getting those templates 'just right'
and at end of day Lorraine had a stunning table runner flimsey to show for her efforts, of course in purple!! the fave colour range after all.

The gals not involved in the workshop had their own little challenge.  New member Caroline bought along a flimsey for some help and advice.  Strip pieced colours of the outback with an appliqued frilled neck lizard in all his glory.  There were some great suggestions made - looking forward to seeing the finished quilt , it will be stunning!.
 While busy out in the back room creating lanterns, Lorraine still had time to share this cute stitchery, knowing Lorraine is fond of bees - well you would have to wouldn't you, being a bee keeper?, anyway Janice gave Lorraine this really cute pattern

to create a wonderful stitchery.

 Lynn bought along this wonderful colourwash heart, a lap quilt to be that she is making for a lady who needs a little love in her life.
