Jubilant July

What a busy month it has been for the ladies here at Kilmore Quilters.  

The month started out with a great little Mystery Quilt Workshop run by Rhonda Coates.  There was plenty of homework for the ladies prior to the workshop with lots of HSTs to prepare.  As the day progressed the quilt started to reveal itself, proving to once again be a quilt well worth doing.

Great progress was made by those who did their preparation

Despite the bitter cold we are currently experiencing there was a great turnout to both gatherings this month with plenty of show and tell on offer.  

Perhaps due to the colder weather or just because it's fun some of the ladies have even picked up their crotchet needles.  This particular pattern is easy and fun to do.

Then there was the Vic Quilters Showcase at Jeffs Shed.  It was wonderful to see the Honour Quilts hanging there along with several entries by some of our members.  Along with some award winning Quilts by Wendy and Dellareece - for more information read our previous blog entry.
