Fun, Fabric & Friends......

Last Thurs I attended our monthly Central Coast Modern Quilt Guild meeting. We have been making a quilt to raffle for a very special little girl and her family. We are having a sew-a-thon on Oct Sat 29, to raise as much money as we can and the raffle will be drawn that day.
The quilt top is together and I am now custom quilting. It looks fab !!!


Kaleidoscope Quilt.....

Yummy Quilting.........
( just noticed in the photo that a bit of stitching is missing. Turns out the bobbin must have just run out. )


To continue the guild theme, on Saturday some of our guild members headed off up the Pacific Hwy on a bus trip to visit Belmont Patchwork Heart, round the lake to Patchwork By the Lake at Boolaroo and over the mountain range to Harrigans Pub in the vineyards for lunch. We had an absolutely fabulous day!!


Hand over that cash Jane.......

Rhonda, Josie, Yagoda & Jane enjoying a cuppa...........

A shopping frenzy.........

Beautiful new growth vines.......... 

Lunch was awesome..........

Last stop, the chocolate shop.............

I have also been real busy doing my good deed for the year helping out a friend. She has a special project due for a magazine that I have been helping with as she is unwell. Shhh, it's a secret. It wont be published til next March so you'll have to wait til then to see it. Feel better soon B :-)

I'm linked up with WIP Wednesday over at Freshly Pieced.

Happy Quilting

Love the kaleidoscope quilt. We just did a class on what looks like the same block but it was done with a scrappy look to it.
