Christmas Gathering 2013

Last night was our last gathering of the year.

We had a wonderful turnout with 40 of our 59 members joining us to celebrate Christmas and a wonderful year of Patchwork and Quilting

Once again country hospitality was at it's best with a wonderful selection of goodies to nibble on.

The ladies went to a great effort dress in a festive mood with plenty of Santa hats, lots of red, Christmas baubles and even the odd
Christmas vest!
Karin was rather festive
We had Show and Tell with plenty of wonderful quilts, 
Joan completed some wonderful quilts on her trip to New Zealand

This one attracted a lot of attention - she had a lot of fun doing this one

Maryanne is behind her tumbling block quilt top she is hand sewing - great progress Maryanne

Jo is making these for a Breast Cancer fundraiser

Maureen has finished another quilt top 

Jude is making wonderful progress on this one, another hand pieced masterpiece

We also had a couple of more quilt tops shown which I have added to the post about Andreas Layer cake class.

We've had a great year, 2014 will bring many more opportunities for our members to learn new techniques during our workshops and the chance to display their wonderful work at the Victorian Quilters Gathering in March and in October at our Quilt In.

Merry Christmas to all and we hope you have a wonderful New Year.
