Tuesday 11th April

A special treat today with our first Easter Raffle. Our members had donated an amazing number of gifts so the major prize was supported by four other prizes. Marlene was the winner of the large basket with other prizes going to Janet, Elizabeth and Robyne and a family member. It was a great success.

Fay has started a ‘Dala’ horse applique from our April newsletter and many other interesting projects are under way. We have sent off Friendship Blocks to our former member Maxine who now lives in Queensland. Maxine reads our blog so a very Happy Easter to you Maxine from your friends at MP&Q and we look forward to seeing a picture of your quilt.

The raffle Quilt is finished!!! What a lovely quilt it is and congratulations to all who had a hand in its making. It is to be called “Victoria Rose” a lovely name for a lovely quilt. Tickets are available from Ferry Park Gallery in Maclean and from members.

As a blast from the past, Wilga showed us some samples for a block called ‘Hidden Wells’. I know a lot of us are going to try this intriguing pattern. Thanks Wilga we love your old patterns.

Next week is just a usual get together so I will sign off by saying Happy Easter to all. Elizabeth
