What a fantastic range of quilts Marie has made - over her quilting years.
Don't quote me on this, but I think this is the plan for Virginia's hexie behemoth, which we will see in a few pics.
Above we have, firstly Dianne G's Book folder. What a great idea for us readers. Another good idea for a Christmas present - particularly for a young reader.
Also, from Deb, a gorgeous hexagon bag, using the most beautiful fabrics.
Can you guess what Tracey is knitting? Yes! You are right! It is a jumper for her cat. I didn't get to find out any more about said moggy, but I imagine and old arthritic feline, who will appreciate his owner'slovingly knitted cover up for the colder months.

You will notice that there are many quilts without names or descriptions. I can only apoligise again. I haven't been well lately and simply could not work out which is which. I did make the following notes:
Bev - had a beautiful (as always) quilt
Margaret - an applique sniggly quilt
Lois - raffle prize for Breast Cancer mornng tea - details to follow
Kaye - almost finished Kansas Troubles quilt - six years in the making
Rosemary - AQA member exhibiton quilt - as we would expect from such a wonderful quilter
Lorraine - medallian project - and hexagons
Lucy - hand quilted panel
