 Sarah's Sunflower, a class she did at the Kiama SCQuilters Retreat this year.

Marilyn's Japanese quilt, doesn't the quilting on this look wonderful.

 Cate's Show and Tell is six more weeks in the making.

 Stephanie made this Cap today, it's made with a ball of one thin piece of knitted stretchy fabric, she didn't quite know what to do with it and didn't like what she started doing below... so she undid it... but she did go home with the cap.

 Heather's Colour Chart... I think this would be a very good idea for a quilt top, using up some of the very many plains I have in my stash.

 Cath's quilt for a young boy who likes the Tigers Football team.

 Cath's finished Christmas UFO.

 Sarah bought her daughters finished quilt, we saw Rebecca making this quilt a couple of years ago at the Blue Gum.

 Rita's Monet's Garden grows and grows.

 Pennie's latest Bonnie K Hunter 'Orca Bay' Mystery.

 Lissa was working on this embroidered quilt.

Liz was putting together one quarter of the quilt we've seen progressing over the last year... or two.

Show and Tell - Part Two

 Joy's Doughnut Baby Cushion was a great hit, everybody knew someone they could make one for.

 Joy's little baby blanket/

 Joy's I Spy quilt.

 Selina made this quilt for her Stepbrothers Wedding, Sel gave us a laugh, she said,  'The brides mother is a crazy witch, I just hope she doesn't take it and burn it.'   Yikes, I hope she doesn't find this Blog!

 Claire is making these table mats for her mothers birthday today!

 Jenn made this quilt for her Mothers Birthday.

 Jenn's... I've forgotten drat!

Jenn made this quilt using a Charm Pack, the back below.

 Unknown to Jenn or Kyishia, Kyishia made a quilt with the same Charm Pack.  Wonderful eh!

 Ann-Maree bought these embroidered blocks on Ebay and turned them into a quilt.  Fascinating blocks.

 I only photographed one Lunch today, MINE!  Lobster and it was delicious and good value for $28!

 Claire spent the day cutting out her fabrics, delicious aren't they!

 Kyishia binding her quilt.

 There was a lot of binding going on today, Jenn binding her quilt.

 Selina binding the Wedding Quilt she made for her Stepbrother.

 Lissa is making spool blocks 2 7/8ths finished, she was going to make a bed quilt requiring 900 blocks but thinks she might make an iPad cover instead :-)

Jean is usually one of the first SCQuiters to arrive, and she comes all the way from Terrigal... but today she got off the train at Hornsby and bought this beaut skirt!   I've forgiven her even though didn't didn't bring a late note  :-)
