Christmas Fun

Congratulations for Heather Hagen’s outstanding identification of 9 of the quiltmakers out of 26 – well ahead of the crowd. It was a challenging field of clever and imaginative interpretation of the flowers and stones of your birth month. This is a sample of the work.IMG_5089

Congratulations Ruth Nunn of the viewers choice – a December representation of turquoise and narcissus.

Everyone had fun  at our last event for the year.IMG_5090

Happy Christmas and may 2018 bring much fun and creativity.
