There is a group on facebook called Quilt Club Australia, it is a virtual community of Aussie quilters that chat, share, encourage and do bees and swaps!
I am in Bee hive 2 and this my block for Tracey for June….
I tried fussy cutting and it looked perfect before I pieced it….anyway it looks great with the other blocks.
Recently the group had a Handmade Swap. And I made a sewing caddy for Tracey…
There was a pair of stork scissors that went in the caddy too.
I used some Ruby and some Make Life… I especially love the twill tape measure!
And I got this awesome package from Marieka…
She got me so well! My fav block, my fav colours and chocolates!!! There is a cushion cover and a zipper pouch, which I have already been using to keep some hand sewing together! Thank you Marieka, I love it!
And then there is the Novelty Fabric Swap…
We are swapping 5” squares of novelty fabric, I am hoping I might be able to make an I Spy quilt for the boys.
These are my fabrics – the Monkeys are an Ann Kellie print and the Trains are from my stash and I can’t remember the details.
Lastly, I think LOL! Is Sasha – The Travelling Stash!
This amazing amount of stashy goodness fits in a 3kg post satchel!
What I took out is on the left and what I put in is on the right….I had to put in a pack of of the Clover Quilting Clips, they are one of my fav stash items!
So, there you have some of the great things you can do on Facebook!
