September Meeting 2013

Sorry the blog editor has only just managed to update the blog from last months meeting.
It was a horrible stormy night and there weren't a lot of members who ventured out.
I must say the drive home for me was a little hair raising as I live way out in the bush.
This months committee challenge was quilts using fabric/embroidery.
Sheryle brought a Leanne's House quilt with embroidery.
General Show and Tell
Pat's Quilt
 Juliet's Pohutukawa Mariner's compass made for
 Aotearoa Quilters' red 12x12 challenge.
Other Pat with a pattern she always wanted to try.
and the back.
