A few UFOs bite the dust...

 Short and sweet and a whole heap of photos.

First cab off the rank. 
 Leanne finished her "re cut diamonds" started in a workshop here in Roma in 2011
 Faye finished binding her "Cake Mix" Quilt started in 2011 (I think)  it is just stunning.
 Liz finished the cushion to match "Fletcher's Quilt"

Debra turned a Jelly Roll Race( from 2 years ago) into an Aussie Hero Quilt and it has been sent to a chaplain in Afghanistan.
 Tracey finished another whole burrow full of Rabbits.
Debra made more progress on the 'care quilt' that is now becoming a 'Aussie Hero Quilt"
and a few of us joined other members of Roma Patchwork to make new UFOs (joking).  
We participated in an "All the Wave" workshop with Julie Latcham (front right) of Cow Paddocks Patchwork .

Cecily (Back left), Melanie (Back 2nd from right), Leanne (back right) and Debra (front left) made sure UFO craft were very well represented.

Well it is craft again tonight, so who knows what we will achieve.
Catch you later.

Constructive, Creative & even some finishes.

The last few months have seen many of our ladies being ULTRA constructive.

Gayle finished Rachel's quilt.  It looks AMAZING
and because she is such a lovely Mum, Gayle made a matching cushion too.
(oops I just realised the photo is completely upside down - sorry)
Here is Gayle with the quilt.  I think she should be very proud of herself.
Well done Gayle.
 Proof we are constructive, Cecily is binding, Olivia is talking  unfolding fabric to iron.
 Leanne is talking (yep) and Liz is having dinner? (Sometimes turning up is as much as we can do)  We wouldn't have it any other way.
 Cecily showed off her finished Batik quilt, it has gone to its new owner already.
A second Cecily finish in very non-Cecily colours.  This is almost the first quilt that Cecily has made exactly to the pattern and using the fabrics specified in the pattern.  This is uncommon as Cecily usually changes up the fabrics to suit her tastes and the pattern to suit the degree of challenge she wants.
Debra started work on a care quilt using fabrics from the scrap bins.  I see a nautical theme going on here.
 As we left, we almost took this visitor home with us.  How Tracey managed not to get a spider imprinted in her face I do not know.  He had made his web between my car and the closest tree.  Glad we convinced him to stay behind.

Hope to be back to post some more progress soon.

"Aargh they breed like rabbits"

That is because they are rabbits.

Tracey's  rabbits are ready to head off to the PICU.
These newbies have been added to the family.

This one with the big tail "do I look big in this?"

 Some traditional and not so traditional looking bunnies.
 This adorable pink one in the middle is kind of shy and she wanted to show us her cute tail. The two on either side of her are made from baby onesies.  Ahhh to cute.

Well done Tracey, they will make some families smile.

National Quilting Day & Quilting Month

I was reading along through some blogs today to read that March 16 is National Quilting Day (in the USA) and apparently March is National Quilting Month.

It think it is awesome to have a day/month dedicated to creativity.  Lets see UFOers - how much creativity can we use in March.

This is the link to the blog where I read this in the first place.
