St Patrick's Eve

Our second meeting for March fell on the 16th March - the day before St Patrick's Day.  Colleen always wears green on St Patrick's and brings us goodies in green for a treat at lunch time.  Today was no exception.  She came armed with Lime Splices (for non Australian's, that is a vanilla ice cream on a stick surrounded by an thin layer of ice block).  Yum!

Evelyn attended a lunch on Wednesday for the Concord Hostel.  We donated a quilt for their raffle - no details of amount raised yet.

We had a lot of unfinished tops brought in, but only a few completed quilts.

First two were made by Evelyn:

Ann made this one, and Evelyn quilted it.

The next three were made by Robyn

Robin found the feature fabric in this one in Hawaii

Close up of feature fabric - isn't it gorgeous?
The centre panel for this one was donated by Robin's friend Kay Grant.

Kay also donated 2 flimsies which I am sure you will see in due course.

Jan made this hand pieced quilt as you go hexagon quilt.

And it's reversible!

That's all for now.  Happy St Patrick's Day.
