Saturday - 18 January 2014 Meeting

Our first Saturday meeting for 2014 was a great success. Despite the very warm weather, we had a great turnout. Planning is well underway for our 30th Anniversary Exhibition this year. It looks like being the best yet!! We presented two cheques to our nominated charities. The money for these donations comes from the sale of tickets for our raffle quilt at the Exhibition.

Here is Debra from John Hunter Children's Hospital, presenting our
President Enid with a certificate in appreciation of the donation just given.
The two groups to receive a donation were John Hunter Children's Hospital and Jenny's Place. We had some great feedback from Jenny's Place on how much the quilts we donate there mean to the women and children whom the centre assists. They are well loved and much appreciated. We will be nominating the recipients for this years donation at the next Saturday meeting.

Above is the wonderful quilt top which will be the raffle quilt for 2014. It is going to look magnificent once it is complete.

As always members are working on fantastic projects. English Paper Piecing is still popular. So in a break from hexagons, here are some other EPP blocks inspired by Rachel Porter.

A wonderfully bright kids quilt for one luck recipient.

A lovely, elegant quilt inspired by Paris. I love the colours and the scalloped border is great.

This quilt was a UFO which was donated by a member. A great way to get it off the UFO list and into a good home!! It now goes to Community Quilts for distribution.
