Many hands make light work

We had a glorious winter solstice here in Sydney last Saturday.  It was 22′ with clear blue skies, so it hardly counts as a winter’s day, particularly for those of you who get snowed in during winter.

It was the monthly meet-up of the Sydney Modern Quilt Guild and we finished this year’s raffle quilt with a combined effort on hand-stitching the binding.

The last stitches!

The last stitches!

Jenn, Tash and Jill happily adding the last finishing touches.

It was hard to get a good photo of the finished quilt because we were in a confined space.

All done – aren’t those colours great!

Each year we do a group quilt that we then raffle to raise money for a good cause – more details in this post.

Tash has also been busy working on this beauty!  I climbed on a chair to try and get a good shot of the whole quilt – almost succeeded! It motivated me to go home and do some more work on my small sketches  series.

Jenn also made us a batch of biscuits to help the stitching along.  I hope some happy stitching comes your way this week.
