Here's an idea to take up.
Mary and I were getting a few too many quilt club badges to keep track of .
We've made  weeny little quilts to pin them to.

From Delwyn to Kerry

Here's the lovely block holder Delwyn sent to Kerry. Isn't it gorgeous?  I can almost hear Del saying those words in her charming Kiwi accent. Kerry was delighted with it.

A little catch up to show off our swap goodies

More Narromine goodies....The table runner above is from Deb to Mary P, isn't it gorgeous. Lucky Mary is thrilled to receive this.

Rosemary loves Sunflowers and these  cheery gifts came from Fiona for her. A bag and a little quilt.
Just look at all the stitching in them, how perfect.

Pat received this beautiful ruler case from June. It's so pretty and has lots of pockets to hold all sorts of quilting equipment. Perfect for Pat who is such an organised quilter.

A girl can never have too many bags and lucky Mary W was delighted with this treasure from Gai. She's used Mary's fabrics so well to create this gorgeous bag.

Most of the gifts have been delivered now. There's just a few still finding their way across the Nullabor, pics will be posted when they arrive.

From Kerry

To Delwyn, these beautiful gifts. A lovely table runner , needle case with gorgeous stitchery and  this little rotary cutter case. Del was so thrilled she wanted all the Patch girls to see the goodies as well. Thanks Kerry for your great work. Delwyn stepped up when one of our girls wasn't able to take part, isn't she lucky.

Show & Tell at the Patch

Tonight a couple more of the girls had their wonderful goodies from Narromine to show. So with a cuppa and Helen's divine butterfly sponge cakes filled with lemon curd and cream we oohed and ahhed over the beautiful work sent across from Club Quilt

Here's Barb showing the gorgeous bag she received from Gai P

Gloria is so happy with the things sent to her by Peg
There's been a couple of busy girls in our club too.
Muriel has whipped up this neat little 6 pocket bag and made a quilt for her brand new grandson Skipp.

Donna has been working on a lovely wedding quilt for a lucky young couple.

Girl's Night Out

A dozen of us braved the wet and the cold last night to gather in Geraldton with like minded patchworkers and quilters. The warmth and friendship soon had us cosy again and then after a delish dinner (thanks Gero girls) we drank in the "Chantelle".
Here's a little eye candy......sorry, I'm useless at taking notes, they were made by lots of people!

From Carol

How wonderful are these goodies for Sue from Carol. Needle book, pin cushion and block folder.

Not quite from Dongara to Narromine and back

Bev, who doesn't live anywhere near Dongara and Norma, who doesn't live anywhere near Narromine have exchanged their swap parcels. It's a fact that both girls are thrilled with their gifts and why wouldn't they be.
Have a look at the lovely project folder Bev made for Norma.
And here's what Norma sent to Bev. Double delights with this matching cushion and little wall hanging set.
Note: last 2 pics from Clubquilt blog

Mary's tote bag

Mary P has made this cute little bag today. It has 6 pockets for all those keys, phones, glasses and what have you. No more rummaging when the mobile rings.
