Brisbane Bloggers meet - 9th December 2012

Everyone has said it so well.
Another lovely morning (for me) at the Wishing Well Cafe.
It was a perfect opportunity to meet Peg & Dale.

and catch up with all these lovely ladies:

Unfortunately I had to leave before lunch for my KQ Christmas party.  We had a lot of lovely food and some fun games.
Later in the afternoon we presented "W" with a quilt we had made as a group effort.  He keeps an eye out for our "workshop" when we are not there.

I also collected my Birthday blocks.  Everyone had made me a 9 patch block with novelty/funky fabrics.  I intend to add some more and make a quilt...it has to be finished before next November.
These are the blocks I have collected:

A busy but fun day.

  1. Oh! Tell me the requirements for the blocks so I can send you some! I would love for your birthday quilt to have some American fabrics in it.

  8. Hopefully next time you will be able to stay the whole time. We will have to set a date for the next one so you have enough warning. Beautiful strip quilt, and your birthday blocks look great.

  9. That's a lovely quilt that was made for W :-) The 'play' of dark and light strips really 'draws' your eyes in! Those birthday blocks are beautiful; some lovely bright colours there.
