Quilting for Queensland Sewing Bee

What a day!  I didn't keep a tally of all the quilts but they are all either finished or have been taken home by someone else to complete the binding or sew on a label.  This is Sharon sewing some binding and labels.
 And Cynthia
 And these three complain every time I take a photo of them and so posed deliberately, Irene, Andrea and Glenys AND  I told them it would be extra large!  They actually did some work too.
 My friend Mary (from Tasmania) made this quilt top and gave it to us to finish for Queensland.

Marvelous what a charm pack can do!
Our local Quilt Shop - Country Pickins at the Corner donated this one

 This was made by Lyn from our group coz she couldn't come to our sewing bees because of work commitments.
 The same quilt shop donated this panel too
 The first quilt to wear some of my FMQ while I am learning.
There are also the teal quilt with the lime green borders, a cream, purple and green quilt and the two teddy quilts - they are all being completed by others - YAY!!!  All should be done by the time we finish our next quilt group meeting on Wednesday.  Hooray!!!

 And this is a little something extra.  Ages ago (so long ago I don't remember it) I gave Andrea a little box with a heap of homespun samples.  She and Glenys took it away in the holidays and sewed hexagons.  We decided today that it is going to be centre panel of our next group quilt - on completion it will be raffled among us.  I say raffled but there are only four of the group left who haven't previously "won" a group quilt - not sure what we will do once there is only one person left!
It seems rather strange to not be working on the Quilts for Queensland.  Now I have to decide what to work on - my applique project, my current round robin block, my quilt for Japan...........
Oh well, too tired tonight.  Till next time

Happy stitching!
