We're Back!

After a long break for Christmas holidays, ANZA Quilters returned to the Dutch Club with lots of new ideas and plans for the New Year...

Alison, after serving the group for so long and so well, asked for volunteers to take over many   of her activities. Surprisingly, for a large group, almost everyone offered to help in some way. Many hands make light, so we now have different people co-ordinating several projects, such as farewell quilts, fabric swaps, charity quilts, show and tell and of course, this blog! It sounds busy but it's actually casual and fun.

Some of our members recently attended a Dijanne Cevaal workshop in Singapore and brought back some great samples of free motion quilting and embellishing. Sorry about the lack of photos. I promise better images in the future.

And, finally, here is a snapshot of some of the hexagons we are preparing for Vicki's charity quilt to raise money for breast cancer research. It promises to be beautiful, with pinks, reds and greens as the dominant colours. It's great for us to learn new skills (e.g.  leave the hexagons in 2 halves to allow for easier construction) as well as help a worthy cause. 
Will post details of where to buy tickets at a later date. 

Bye for now.
