Second Bushfires Quilting Bee

How much can get achieved in a day when there’s a bunch of friendly, creative ladies together in the one place?  The answer on Saturday was LOTS. (Warning – be prepared for LOTS of photos in this post!)

Lots of completed quilts brought back for show and tell……..


Lots of handsewing done to finish off even more quilts………


Lots of sorting through other fabrics and planning even more quilts……….

Lots of working together and sharing……….

Lots of sewing and quilting…………


Lots of fun but a great sense of achievement knowing they are all going towards a good cause.

And because they are going towards such a good cause we are keen to get ALL the quilts finished as soon as possible so, although lots of generous ladies are quilting away as quickly as they can, we have decided to get quite a few of the tops professionally quilted so that they are ready to go.  To help raise some of the money towards this we are planning a Quilt Hanging on Saturday 20 June.  So mark the date in your diary……more info will follow really soon.

PS.  There’s some more photos of Saturday here.

PPS. Oh….and there was lots of food for morning and afternoon tea too…..
