Only one week of stitchin' time left...

...before the Easter Fair, yep, sign in is next Wednesday 16th for our Easter Fair on Saturday 19th.

Wendy was putting the finishing stitches into the binding on this lovely that will be offered for sale at the Fair,

A scrappy, sashed squares design. 
Wendy machine quilted this one using the serpentine stitch in an 'X' pattern.

Marcia was also finishing off the binding on her charity quilt, destined for the SC-Koping group, a Sunshine Coast association of government and non government agencies, supporting kids who find themselves caring for their ill parents.

Debbi is about to launch into a new project with this lovely cross stitch kit that she received for her birthday.
Photos will follow as Debbi progresses with her project.

Janice is creating lots of table runners for the Easter Fair, she bought some along today to ask for advice on quilting designs and borders - "good advice" is what she said, well!, can you imagine some of the suggestions, intricate tiny little designs, 1/4" quilting, Maricia suggested 1/8" quilting!!
But after all the shenanigans, Janice had some good solid ideas to go on with.

Fae has completed another scrappy Q.A.Y.G. string quilt, this one with vibrant blue sashing and the same blue as the middle diagonal stripe.
Fae will be putting this lovely up for sale at the Easter Fair.

Tessa and Gwen were working on some little stars, 'Just to hone their hand piecing skills' WOW!!
 This is one of Tessa's little blocks, the precision is amazing.  Can't wait to see what they will create.

Gwen bought along a beautiful hand pieced and hand quilted lap quilt to share.
A closer look at some of that piecing and the lovely hand quilting Gwen has done on the solid blocks.
Just click on the pic to bring up a larger version to see Gwen's amazing work.

Ailsa was spotted having a bit of a barney...
yep, a hank of floss decided that it was just going to go the other way and get all tangled.

Wandering past Chris (who was busy chatting....surprise, huh) a tub of squares were spotted.  Remember that  paper she was about to attack and turn into templates last week? well....
lots of squares here.  The flowers are cut from strip pieced jelly roll strips and then fused to backing squares using fusible web.
Chris then buttonhole stitched around the flowers.

Karen is busy stitching some beautiful embroidery squares.

 This one - teddy and his topiary

Sue is still stitchin' dogs, of all varieties.  
The finished banners will be for sale at the Fair.

More of the scrappy string Q.A.Y.G. blocks made an appearance today.  They will be off to Val's to be transformed into another Charity Quilt.
