The annual Monbulk Community Quilt Show is on again on
SATURDAY 15TH MARCH.
This year we are also grateful to be invited to have display as guest designers!! We will have our quilts on display and be there to demonstrate products we love. You can check out Mrs Martins Quilt Shop blog for more info or to contact Karen in regards to displaying quilts.
The details are above and the first 100 through the door will receive a show bag full of really cool things.
So don't be late!!
All money raised on the day goes to supporting the wonderful work the volunteer CFA members do to help protect our community. There will be other stalls on the day so we are sure something to suit the whole family.
We had our Baby Janes sewing group on Friday night at Lilly Patches in Boronia. As always we had a great night and here's what some of the ladies were working on:
Maureen finished one of our designs: "Tessellate":
Close up of the centre block: She has done a lovely job. Unfortunately the photos don't do it justice.
Divna had this jelly roll quilt top finished(a present for a loved one:
And was working on some Crochet:
Just love this granny squares rug she is working on.
Then Robyn was working on a design that she created herself. She drew her inspiration from a motif on a birthday card:
She is blanket stitching this on her machine and the stitches are fantastic. Might have to try machine blanket stitch one day! This is going to be stunning when it's finished.
Fiona was working on these wonderful little 3/8" hexies:
Not all sewn together yet, but we couldn't resist laying out all the hexies she's done to see how it's growing. She has fussy cut everything. She also had her Summer Dresden quilt with her that she making with fabrics bought in Japan last year. Unfortunately everyone else liked this too, so no chance of sneaking this one home in my basket! But we did buy some small hexie papers!
We didn't get pics of the rest, sorry. Jenny was working on stitcheries for baby quilt number 8. Her friends keep having babies! Julie was working on clam shells and Laurel was working on some lovely embroidery.
Lisa and I were both working on the centre appliqué of our newest design. We will hopefully be able to show you pictures soon.
Last night we went to White Night in Melbourne. Check out our Instagram for some pics we uploaded last night.
