Sekrit Wimmin's Bizness

Launceston Patchworkers & Quilters have an annual retreat and somehow I manage to come up with a small (or buy more fabric and make it bigger) project each year.

But if it's to be a mystery the participants still like to know what sort and how much fabric to bring!

I have given them their requirement list and the quilt top will be at The Quilt Patch from tomorrow for them to look at. None of this is compulsory and not everyone does it at the time. Some later, some never!

The quilt is made using a 60 degree ruler which many would not have used before, thus making it a learning experience.

Anyhow, my job is done - the sample's made, the notes photocopied and the goody bags are packed.

Graeme and I head off to Brisbane Wednesday for 5 sleeps as the grandchildren are being christened on Sunday.

It will be lovely to see them again as it;s been a month and Miss Maggie seems to have grown so much in 4 weeks. We missed a lot with Banjo as they were living in Amsterdam and then Stockholm, but we did get a couple of lovely overseas holidays to visit them.
This is another Oriental quilt I have been working on while in the mood. It needs borders now.

I love both of those quilts. I'm sure everyone will be very pleased with their Sekrit Wimmin's Buisness. Wish I was coming! vbg

Pretty quilts, Fran. I love the colours. Somehow they don't look like you, though.
