We have a new box at the Patch now.

Big enough to put all our quilt stands in and some things we only need for special days.
Extra chairs and over talkative members will fit in too.

We think it might look especially nice with a barn quilt painted on the side.

Now there will be much more room in the club house..... for our new quilting machine.

Some of us are making a mystery quilt and here's a couple finished already.
No more mystery now!

Pat showed us her Crazy Patch quilt, all made of left over fabrics from clothes. Lots of fleecies and knits in here, pieced with zig-zag stitch. A real use of scraps and gorgeous to look at too.

Jean had a flimsie to show us, she's making this up for Camp Quality. Well done Jean and the hand dyed fabric you did sets a great "Beachy" colour scheme.

The Patch has a new toy

......................and we are so excited!
                   Great thanks to Tarnyia and the past quilters from Mount Magnet
because this little beauty has come to live with us.
The club there has disbanded and with no quilters left to make use
of this machine, Tarnyia and the others offered it to our group. 
Ros took the long trip to Mt Magnet to collect it and
I'm really sorry we don't have a pic of them driving home with double story tables on their roof!

Now the machine has been set up in the clubrooms and
a practise quilt will be pinned on soon so we can all practise like mad.
Thank you, thank you, thank you to Tarnyia and  the Mt Magnet Quilters
for this generous gift.
