Wednesday 7th of May 2014

This was our “Biggest morning tea” get together, and a fabulous morning tea it was. There was a raffle and also all the proceeds from the trade table were also donated. A total of $300 was raised on the day – in conjunction with Vic. Quilters, this year, the funds were donated to Ovarian Cancer. Big congratulations to Sally on winning the raffle too.

Marilyn with her “First sock” – well done!  Also from Marilyn, her quilt made as a challenge from Mornington Peninsula Quilters – original shapes were given to her (cut with go cutter), and two fabrics as part of the challenge , and Marilyn then cut some more with her new computerised ab fab, all dancing cutter. The result is a lovely quilt for children of all ages!

Some lovely charity quilts from Laurel – lovely patterns.



Here we have lucky Maggy, with a beautiful bag she won at The Cranbourne St. John’s quilt show. The bag was made by another of our members – the clever Frances. And here is a quilt made by me (Helen)  for my great niece, Jude the beauteous! The Angel blocks came from a Scquilters block swap – several years ago.
