Quilt In - Our members

Well done to the Quilt In committee for organising such a fabulous event and a thank you to all the volunteers who put in a lot of work sewing pincushions and gifts and for helping out on the day!  As I walked around I overheard many of our visitors saying how lovely the event was and how well organised it was.  There was lots of chatting, laughing and loads of beaming smiles!

You may have noticed that I took a lot of photos!  I'm sorry I didn't manage to capture everyone and I've mostly missed us Sunbury Quilters (particularly me...fancy that!) because you didn't seem to sit still for a single second!  Many of you will appear in other blog posts though and I apologise in advance for any unflattering shots!

Here's Maureen embroidering the borders of her Rose quilt.  Jocelyn is doing a very important task...planning which cake to eat first! 

Rosie is working on a Chester Criswell quilt which was made originally in 1852 in Chester County, Pennsylvania. You can read all about it and see the quilt on the Two Bits Patches website.

Di is working on a Midget Blocks quilt.  As you can see the blocks are tiny!  Well maybe you can't see...they are awfully small!

Andrea and Karen are hand quilting their quilts.  Andrea's quilt is Emily's Calico Stars and Karen is quilting her shirt challenge quilt ready for August.  It must be August 2015 surely?  Because I'm nowhere near ready to quilt mine!

Here's Robyn and Janice, a couple of visitors and friends of Ann.  Robyn is making a car blankie with beautiful fairies and Janice was busy binding her very first quilt ready for our Show and Tell later in the afternoon.  A photo of the quilt will appear in a Show and Tell post.

Ann's daughter, Laura, is also busy sewing the binding on the quilt ready for Show and Tell.

This is the Chatters' Group!  These ladies came along with Heather, Ailsa and our to be persuaded to return as a member Sharon.  These ladies were having such fun and even managed to do a bit of stitching in between all that laughter!
My next post will be all about our lovely visitors who really made the day special.  Thank you for coming!
