Beautiful Quilt for a friend

Technorati Tags: ,
Kathy I. and one of her friends, recently made this beautiful quilt from many different types of Japanese fabric.  Lots of different methods were used and some lovely sashiko quilting as well. 

It was made to comfort a friend during her illness.  We are sure she will treasure it.

Chocolate is Chocolate...or not

We all know that Quilters generally love chocolate....and being part of such a diverse group of international intellectuals, there is often much discussion as to which country has the best certain brand dairy milk chocolate.

Vicki organised the challenge....everyone who visited different countries over the summer was to bring back a block of the aforementioned brand and we would do a blind taste test.

Samples arrived from the UK, Australia, New Zealand, USA, Brazil, Philippines, Singapore, Chile and maybe one other?

Some of the samples.....


The judges would like to point out that the tasting team were from many nationalities. 
Is it a surprise then that the sample from Australia was voted the best? It will be to those from the UK!

Reporting Live From...

Thought I'd do this post in the middle of a tuesday meeting. The noise level is pretty high, which is a good thing...   lots of happy conversation.

Where were we...
Oh yes quilting.
Quite a few people are industriously working at their BOMs. Here's a snapshot.
Some people are so quick and efficient at appliqué, and then there's others...
But we are all enjoying it in our own way. Others are mass producing Christmas coasters!
Someone just said, 'thank goodness these walls are soundproof'. So I think I'll sign off and concentrate on the conversation - if I dare!

Bye for now...
