Handwork! Every month I am blown away by the talent within this Pub Quilting Group. Wow!

Brenda fussy cutting Hexagons... I love doing this sort of thing as well.

Heather's Hide and Seek block... she tells me she has three blocks to stitch before she can start putting  the quilt together.

Irene crocheting a scarf for some lucky person.

Jackie is unpicking her friends hand quilting, her friend was going to throw these blocks away but Jackie is saving them... maybe next month we might see a top??

Jenn making Hexigan blocks.

Jo making fans.

Joy is making a similar quit to Robyn.

Linda's handwork... reverse sewing was involved here.

Lissa one Pie!

Liz has a new project underway.

Lyn making another little broach, same as the one she was wearing.

Lynne almost finished her little blue bird yesterday... only a few stitches to go on the bottom line.

Maggie loves LA!

Marilyn is enjoying going back to her childhood and colouring in.  Fantastic book with lots of wonderful pictures... including some Babushkas!  :-)

Michelle is knitting socks for her teenage son... he's just going to love these!

I'm knitting squares to make a blanket for my cousin.

Robyn... see similar quilt as Joy's.

Ros working on this fabulous Sashiko.

Selina is starting to put these blocks together.

Stephanie knitting herself some socks... very clever how the variegated wool is making the pair almost match.

Stephy is crocheting a blanket and below two little jackets she made for a baby girl.

Virginia finishing off her wonderful crochet... check it out in the Show and Tell.

SCQuilters, yes yesterday we enjoyed the company of 26 SCQuilters from all around NSW, our Terrace Room at the Pub was just buzzing... such fun!

Brenda and Jill.
Check out these three Hot Chicks!!   :-)    Michelle, Pennie and Stephanie.
Jackie and Stephy with the bright pink in her hair.
Jo and Irene.

Liz and Rita.
Joy and Glynis.

Lissa and Michelle.
Lyn and Marilyn.
Selina and Jenn.

Show, Show and Wonderful Tell.

Stephanie did a class in Thailand, great result Steph.

 You have to see and feel this Show of Virginia's to believe it! Virginia's enormous blanket is very heavy and all Hand Crocheted!!!
Can you believe this???  Amazing.

Selina is making the most of some left overs.
 Fabulous aren't they.

Jenn has fussy cut every little piece of these borders... true, you have to feel the quilt to realize that it is fussy cut and not just the pattern in the fabric.  What fun eh!  I'd love doing this sort of quilting... yes Jenn and I are quite mad  :-)  in the nicest possible way of course.

Marilyn has a new Grandson and another Grandchild on the way...  hence the lovely Peter Rabbit quilt.

 Jackie had a lot of terrific show and tell for us yesterday and wait till you get down to #6

Check out this lovely idea of Glynis' below.  The idea is based on the 'Confetti Quilt' click to see.

 Lissa made this quilt and forgot to stitch the pictures, they were transfers... she's stitched them now though :-)
 Lissa bought this Tent Maker Quilt below... isn't it stunning!

Joy has put together Bonnie K Hunters Mystery 'Grand Illusions'.  I made the blocks but haven't put mine together yet....  one day!!  Well done Joy.

Another lovely quilt by Jill, I do like her choice of colours!

 Check out Lynne's tiny little houses, she got this made quickly, it seems as if she was only starting this one last week. 

 Maggie flew in from America yesterday morning, she landed at 8:30am and came straight to the Pub...  while visiting her home, her mother bought out this quilt saying that she couldn't remember when she made it!  Maggie was able to inform her mother that she didn't make it Maggie did!  :-)
 We have a little Pub challenge each year. Lissa set the challenge for this year and it is... 4 Patches!  Maggie is moving to Manila for a few months so won't be here for the December Pub meeting, but she's made her challenge and here it is!
 All Japanese fabrics, it looks and feels wonderful!

Nice to see Ros this month, and her beaut show.

Liz was wearing this amazing black lace jacket, I just had to have a photo of it... 

I made this little quilt a few years ago... Michelle took a liking to it so I gave it to her!
Pennie's Mini New York Beauty.
