Raffle Quilt Working Bee

On Saturday the 13th August there was a good turn out of helpers to make the raffle quilt.
Annette was very organised and had cut all the fabric and put it in baskets.
A production line was formed with sewers and helpers.
Claire, Annette and Antoinette
Dragica and Annette S.
 Yvonne and Pat with Vicki and Andrea in the background.
Jean working hard on the tablerunner.
June and Jean busy pressing.
The blocks nearly done.
 Time to see how it looks before sewing the blocks together.

Annette getting the inner border ready.
And the inner border on.  It is looking good.
There were so many pieces left that some worked out a plan for a lap quilt with the left overs.
Jennifer, Sandy and Vicki.
This will be 2nd or 3rd prize.
 And the tablerunner 2nd or 3rd.
All of this was completed on the day.
  Outer borders still to be added to the main quilt and all three to be quilted.
Watch this space.
Thanks to all the ladies that attended the day (Annette d, Annette S, Pat, Vicki, Antoinette, Jennifer B, Jean, June, Jo, Andrea, Dragica, Chris, Yvonne, Sandy, Juliet, Claire, Jennifer G, and Tina).
And a special thank you to those that made the lovely food to keep us going.
