The Start of a Raffle Quilt!!

It was great to be back at Needlework last night and this morning and to catch up with all the ladies!  We have been in recess for the christmas holidays for 8 weeks so it was definitely a time of lots of chatter and a little bit of stitching!   Great to see some lovely finished pieces and some new works in progress!    It was also lovely to receive back so many embroidered squares for our new raffle quilt for 2012.   Here are some of the squares - all beautifully embroidered and waiting to be stitched together into what promises to be another gorgeous quilt!    

I gave the ladies a piece of fabric for their Christmas homework with no direction as to colour or stitches to be used .... and these are the result !!

Hopefully we will have enough squares to make two quilts!

Love the use of this beautifully coloured variegated thread!

And on the background of the natural coloured fabric, these ladies stitched in white really stand out!

A gorgeous basket of sunflowers!

A beautifully stitched gardening angel!

And another beautifully stitched colourful lady stitching in the garden!   The designs are from various designers and the ladies have certainly left their individual touch on each piece!  I'm looking forward to seeing what comes in next week!!
