Quilters' Circle - 28th February, 2011

The last day of summer - and it was cool and rainy outside, making it a good day to be inside quilting.

Unfortunately Joy couldn't be here today. Doubly unfortunate for her, because we had a surprise afternoon tea to celebrate her birthday!
We hope you have a lovely birthday next week, Joy, and that we will see you back again soon! I'd like to say that we will save some of that fruitcake for you, but I don't think it will last, sorry...

Today a bit of appliqué was going on. Carol worked on the tulips in the border of this beautiful quilt:

Vireya did some work on the centre of another project:
This is the first block of Esther Aliu's new Block-of-the-Month project, Hearts Desire, although Vireya is not planning to make another whole appliqué quilt.

Jenny is appliquéing thirteen greyhounds for a quilt she is making. Here are four of them:
Aren't they great?

Glennys cut the pieces for this Jacob's Ladder block, which will be a cushion cover for a football fan.
No prizes for guessing the team!

Marie worked on her hexagon project, and delivered even more blocks for the Oz Comfort Quilts appeal:
They are so bright and happy!

There are quite a pile of blocks in the office now. Thanks everyone for your contributions! We are planning to send them off on Thursday this week, so if you have some finished it would be great if you could get them to the office by Thursday lunchtime, please.

So that's it for another Quilters' Circle meeting. They go by so quickly. Our next meeting won't be for a month, because the second Monday in March is Labour Day, and the house will be closed. So we will see you again on 28th March.
