Our club ran a free motion quilting class by Donna Ward and this is  Donna B. sample piece.  It was a fun day.
Diana has sewed up some lovely table runners.
Disappearing Nine Patch, and was made by Judith A. She said she made it to use up scraps.
Another by Judith, this is an Eye Spy Quilt.
Judith's Sister wanted something to give to her German Friend when she visits in Feb 2019 so she made her Kiwiana Table runners.
We had a retreat at Lake Wiritoa recently and these bags were the mystery item they made on the Friday night.
A beautiful wall hanging made by Veronica.  It is a Lynette Anderson pattern.  Just in time for Christmas.
These looked amazing, Christmas wreath table centres, made by Carol B. and they are for her nieces & nephews for Christmas.
A lovely colourful quilt made by Kathleen E.  It is made up of 5" squares and the pattern is from a Pat Speth Book and was quilted by a club member Joy.  Kathleen said it was made from her stash but has not made any difference!!!!
 Frances has called this "Christmas Baskets" and she is going to be hanging in on her office wall.

Veronica made this at the recent retreat we had and is called "Zen Doodle Cat" He has a very cheeky smile!!
Our theme for the month was "Too Hard Basket"
