Tuesday 10th May

A lovely sunny day but stitching called us all inside. It was of course our English Paper Piecing day and Helen had two new rows for us to tackle. First was a row described as Lozenges which take nine hexagons to create. The other row was a Hexagon Trail.We just love all the tips and tricks that Helen imparts especially how to choose the colours and patterns and the fussy cutting. I was so engrossed I forgot to take any pictures of us at work.

Elizabeth had her quilt made for little Riggs a great nephew. It featured giant trucks and earth moving equipment set in octagons. It should suit him for years to come.

It was also the day the president handed over the raffle quilt made for the Bundjalung-Baygal Warriors football team to help them raise money. Two lovely young chaps came for the hand over and stayed for a cuppa. They were delighted with the colourful quilt.
