Patchwork Group - The Material Girls


The blocks on the left are for the 10 year old grand daughter of my friend Lorraine who is in the patchwork group to which I belong.

Our patchwork group 'The Material Girls' meets once a month for lunch and a chat, but we don't sew.

Each month one of us hands out a project for the others to do and we return the next month with the finished work.

You might want blocks done for a quilt or some smaller items. Last year they made me wall hangings and cushion covers for my family room. This year they are making blocks for a quilt for my bed.

We also make quilts for charities to raffle. We like to get together at someone's home to do this.


PS Potch is settling in really well, as though she has always lived here. I'd better go and write my reports now as it is the busy time of the year for school teachers in Australia.

Great work! And what a good idea for a group. It's always nice to see someone else's take on a project or idea.
