Nearly there

We had a big day last week and put the 20 blocks for the quilt together.
Ann, Vicki and myself put the pedal to the metal and it went like clockwork.

All the blocks were trimmed and sewn in rows with the cream triangles and unbelievably it all fitted perfectly.
With so many people sewing the block we were a bit apprehensive about the final steps.

Our inspiration (thanks Jane) is on the table in front of Vicki and Ann and our WIP progress is on the wall behind. They could both be the same quilt.
Ours has been passed on to Susie Anderson to work her magic with the quilting. Can't wait to see it finished.

Careful cutting makes all the difference!

In other exciting news we have arranged for Lyn Alchin from Leura to be our featured quilter at next year's show. Lyn was the designer of our Alice's Tea Party raffle quilt for 2008 which won it's category at the Sydney Quilt Show in the same year. She teaches beautiful antique-inspired quilts at a host of shops in Sydney and surrounding areas. Keep an eye out for a profile on Lyn in the near future.
Our chosen charity for the next show is the Blue Mountains Rural Fire Service who do a fantastic job looking after all  Mountains residents not only over the long hot summer but all year round.
