Christmas at Sandra's

Last Saturday night was our Sandlyn Christmas party hosted yet again by dear Sandra!
She had done a wonderful job setting up her home to have us all over for dinner.
The evening starts by decorating the Christmas tree and carols.
Then we all move out to the dining room for our yummy dinner.
Sandra cooks roast pork with amazing crackle ( the best bit right!) and turkey. Then we all bring either salad or dessert to share. We have the best time together.
After dinner there is gift giving.
For those who want to participate you make a mini quilt and wrap it.
Everyone gets a number and the parcels are handed out.

Then everyone unwraps to reveal gorgeous mini quilts!!!!


This is the back of red quilt above. Christine quilted it on her long arm for Val!!

These two are from last years exchange and came back for show and tell.

We then had some show and tell from Sandra.
She recently entered two quilt in the Lilydale show and both won prizes! Well done Sandra.

Even the back is stunning.

Love the fabrics in this quilt.

Love this strippy quilt too!

Hope you enjoyed the show and tell.
Hopefully in the next two weeks we will have our new quilt to show you all. We are hoping to release it at the Annual Outer Eastern Fabric Frolic that will start on Jan 18th.

Follow the link to see the shops you can visit for a lovely day out.

Have a great weekend

  1. It looks like a fun time was had by all. Thanks for the show and tell!

  2. You may love the fabric in the quilt but I can't see the fabric. The pictures that are grouped four to a square are dark and blurry and these old eyes can not enjoy them.

    1. Hi Mimi, sorry about that! We have to keep our pics small and grouped or we run out of photo space on blogger and then they charge us!! Also we just use our phones we are far from skilled photographers here, but we didn't think they were blurry?? lucky we make good quilts lol.
      Thanks for your feedback.

  3. Wishing you both a Joyous Christmas and a New Year full of wonderful quilting adventures to share with everyone!!!! cheers...Marian xo
