Those quiet achievers have been at it again...

...Meeting day today with an update on how far along the show organisation has travelled. Wow...just wow, so many members working hard and coming up with great ideas, all managed and guided by Sheila. Really folks, pencil in the dates, don't overbook - you won't regret a visit.

Gaye, our very talented patchworker and artist, along with help from Cottage Newsletter editor, Graham has designed a terrific handout brochure, using a pic of one of the raffle quilts as the vibrant and colourful background.

Talking of raffle quilts, Gaye gave us a heads up, she was visiting with Fiona, the Quilt Fairy and the 2nd raffle quilt has been quilted, so a big reveal is in the near future.

Wendy is working on another hand project of large cream hexies, there are lacy hexies,
and candlewicked Hexies
a great project to work on while watching Tellie. Wendy thought she might like a tad more variety in the laces and she certainly will have all the variety she needs with the large bag of cream cotton laces Marcia bought along to share with her.

Marcia also had her latest to share with us, a lovely flimsey created with a little fabric selection help from her darling. Using a free pattern from the Fat Quarter Shop. The pattern is 'Layer Cake Custard' and can be found here. There is even a youtube video with Kimberley for you to follow.

Yvonne purchased 3 pieces of lovely hand printed fabric and very cleverly turned it into a selection of 6 fabrics for this stunning quilt.
With the printing showing as a mirror image on the reverse, flipping both the orange and purple fabrics created a great colour play.
add to that, running the black and white print horizontally as well as vertically, presto! 6 from 3.
Yvonne used a lovely deep purple shot cotton for the backing and a simple straight line quilting design.
