Applique medallions for some quilt centres.... so gorgeous, can't wait to see what will surround them.
Ever so slowly progressing, is our Dear Jane project [working from the book Dear Jane by Brenda Papadakis], which at 4 blocks per month is set to run for another couple of years. Several of us started the project, but these 3 ladies are very consistent with completing the blocks each month. One is doing the diamond version (Quilted Diamonds by Linda Franz)
Attention to detail really does take projects to a whole new level, such as the embroidery on the sewing cover, the foundation pieced Mariners Compass centre in the same shot and work on the Patchwork of the Crosses piece...
At our last 10-10 Super Saturday Sewing day, one of our members taught others how to line a cane basket with fabric, you have to agree they are really lovely.
We also had delicious eye candy with a few complete quilts
|'Friendship Star' from a class run by one of our members|
|'Seasonal Changes' also from a class run by one of our members.|
|'Sunbonnet Sue' a true classic|
The Egyptian Quilt is still progressing, B is slowly hand appliqueing his way around the motifs.
We hope that you have enjoyed reading this blog post and the super eye candy from the pictures.

Apart from our Quilt In we were profiled in a booklet all about Kilmore. A number of community groups were chosen to host the local MP, be interviewed by her and then have some photos taken. It was on the 6th Oct, that a few of us went to the launch of this booklet. We had a lovely morning tea, watched a short presentation and enjoyed each other's company as well as that of the other community groups.
More information about Spotlight on Kilmore can be found here.
The very stormy weather certainly put a huge damper on our night gathering, but the day gathering was well attended and once again, the Show'n'Tell was wonderful.
English Paper Piecing and Fussy Cutting seem to be the "flavour of the month" at the moment, as the pics below will show.....
W and S were both showing us how beautiful hand applique and hand embroidery can be.
After such a busy October, we hope to see many of you at our November Gatherings and at the 10-10 Super Saturday Sew-In on Sat 17th Nov.

The Kilmore Memorial Hall looked beautiful upon entry, with all of the quilts from our members who exhibited at Showcase displaying their quilts.
Among the ohhss and ahhs, people were quickly lining up for our famous morning/afternoon tea table, full of scrumptious home-made treats. Some even brought along antique tea-cups to drink from.
A day of truly celebrating all things quilting and friendship.
