March 11

A day in the life of a Tangled Web Quilter - these pics, taken last Wed are typical of the kind of activities we get up to.


Ali started working on a cloth book and continued supervising the group project.  Congrats to Ali for the pic of her Bring a Plate challenge winning piece on the cover of the Tas Quilter's Guild newsletter.  For those who haven't seen it..............

Suzanne was working on her CATS piece.  It's looks fabulous!

Nice to see someone happy in her work!

A closer look at Suzanne's CATS

Versatile Vicki brought 2 projects to work on, depending on how the mood struck.
A knitted shawl perhaps ....................

But hand work on the Hug 'n Kisses quilt won the toss - look at that concentration!

Roxy was hard at work on the group project (sorry, it can't be revealed yet).

Roxy - sewing with your eyes open is a lot easier!

Judy was playing with a couple of new gadgets - a fabric strip cutter and a bias binding maker, both by Singer.  I didn't get a chance to see the results of the road-test, but Jude looks like she's giving the fabric cutter a work-out!
It's not all fun and games - some of us have to work!


Jenny did some work on the group project (at least she said she did), but was distracted by a visit from her grandson and daughter Sarah.
Family time in the cottage

Lesley was hand sewing the binding on her Card Trick quilt.  Sorry, no pic of Lesley (she's behind the camera as usual) but here's a pic of the quilt and the man she made it for. 

 John's quilt - umm a little smaller than he expected, but he doesn't look disappointed

Maria's been holidaying in Tassie for a couple of weeks now, escaping the heat and the rain at home (sorry Maria, but is it Qld or WA )?

Maria's getting in early for next Xmas!

Marie is making a quilt as a gift for her grand-niece, 6 year old Elliana who lives in Queensland.  Elliana sold off her toys to raise money for the flood victims and raised over $600. 

The quilt had to be in pink & purple
