9th Nov–our last get together for 2013

Lots of lovely show and tell on Saturday was shared along with stories of recent retreats, classes and travel

 09 Nov 2013 (2) Ann had made this beautiful bag and brought it along for show & tell and there was more…..

 09 Nov 2013 (3) Ann had also been very creative in a recent fabric art class, making this lovely notebook cover…..

09 Nov 2013 (5) Last but not least, Ann shared with us a stunning Black White & Red quilt top made for her daughter as a lounge throw. Lucky girl!

09 Nov 2013 (14)Julie completed the binding on this lovely Grandmothers Flower Garden (jelly roll) quilt which was quilted at a retreat the previous weekend.

Dianne worked on an embroidery piece of a lovely old house that looked a lot like one I grew up in 09 Nov 2013 (5) (minus a few brown snakes)

Helen worked on making more hexagons to add to her collection 09 Nov 2013 (6)

Kayt was teaching herself to crochet – Starting on something easy hahaIMG_0213

Shaaryn worked on her beautiful applique block whilst this Sharon nursed a sprained wrist and looked on 09 Nov 2013 (4)

Being our last GTG for 2013 we each bought along a plate of food to share and a feast was enjoyed by all. No photo’s of the food – let’s just say it was a feeding frenzy!!!

Amongst the food, fun & chatter 8 of us brought along our ugliest fat quarter to be swapped09 Nov 2013 (2) with hilarious results. Some of us quite liked the ‘ugly’ we drew out in the swap, others were surprised that what one person considered ugly another person thought was lovely, maybe even having some in their own stash.

We return on February 8th 2014 with a completed project using our ugly fat 1/4. Come along and join the fun, vote for the best project and see the winner awarded her prize.  Speaking of prize, I best get onto that!

So until next year, on behalf of the South East Queensland SCQuilters Get Together stitchers, we wish you a safe & happy Christmas & we hope you’ll put aside one Saturday a month to come along join the fun in 2014

Merry Christmas everyone



  1. It's taken me a little while to get here to see Sharon's wrap up of our Brisbane SCQuilters GTG for 2013. It was a reminder of the lovely year we have had meeting each month. Some months large numbers, other months just a few, although each and every time has been worth the effort and I look forward to catching up with everyone in 2014!
    Thanks once again Sharon for keeping a Blog record of our achievements!

  2. Beautiful work ladies it's so lovely to see all the different projects you all make. Thank you for showcasing them to the world.
