A Rouges Gallery of Southern Cross Quilters. Do you know these people? Even I can't put names to some but most I can, what about you Michelle Watters? Would you believe, some of these SCQers have been coming to both Pubs for more than 10! Are you in any of these Photos?

This was a gathering held at my home with a bus trip thrown in for the lucky SCQuilters who could come.  I was December 2003.

  2005 - Sydney SCQuilters Retreat - 11 out of 12 from a break-away SCQuilter Group called the 'Cows' living in WA, SA, Vic, Tas and NSW.

 2006 - Where we all started at Pennant Hills Inn now called Hotel Pennant Hills, Pennant Hills.

 2007 - Pennant Hills.   (we had to find a different Pub because Pennant Hills turned 'our' room into a smoking room.  Now it's been redone and a much nicer place to be.)

 2008 - First Year at the Blue Gum Pub.






2015 - Another break away SCQuilters Group - The Ku-ring-gai's.

Another Saturday spent at the Pub! We weren't able to have our usual room this month, it was full of Normanhurst Boys High ex-students enjoying a reunion, so we were in the larger room sharing with another group of ladies celebrating a 40th Birthday and lots of other tables full of Ladies!

I didn't take heaps of photos this month it was a bit difficult but there was lots of Show and Tell... and surprise, surprise... five were mine!
 My knitted Hexagon Blanket... I know I said I was never going to sew another Hexagon but knitting is different to sewing isn't it  :-)

 This is my Belinda Giblin 'Trip around the World' challenge.  I added some borders to make it just that bit bigger.

The next three are my Bonnie K Hunter 'Grand Illusions' Mystery Quilt.  I'd made all the blocks for this mystery but found the finished quilt far too busy for me so I turned my blocks into three single bed quilts that are heading to a Charity when they are quilted.
 Pennie's BKH 'Grand Illusions' #1.

 Pennie's BKH 'Grand Illusions #2.

 Pennie's BKH ' Grand Illusions' #3

Now below is Jean's BKH 'Grand Illusions.  Jean choose much softer colours for her Grandson so it doesn't look as busy as mine was going to.

 Rita had some beaut Show and Tell today. Top is front and below is back of a quilt going to a Soldier.

 Rita's old Jean's quilt.
 A new project for Rita above and below some fabric for the back.

 Jackie made this quilt above  for her Grand Daughter and check out the quilting Jackie did on her quilt below.

 Jenn had three beaut quilts to show... quilt #1 above and please, please check out her shoes!  I didn't notice them yesterday but I'm loving them in this photo  :-)

 Selina's Mermaid quilt and below her Unicorn backing... wonderfully mystical isn't it.
