International Quilting Day Report

I know things have been quiet on the blog recently but I have been busy preparing for our International Quilting Day event which happened today.

We had an attendance of 43 people and have raised the grand total of £637.13 for Barnsley Hospice.

I have been overwhelmed by the generosity of everyone who donated raffle prizes, charity stall items, baking etc and also to all those who helped to make the day such a great success.

Here is a report of the events -

These are just some of the 100+ block lotto blocks.

A selection of Ugly Fat Quarters waiting to be swapped.

A quilt from the Show and Tell.

Samples from Lynne's Applique People workshop.

And samples from Hazel's Postcard workshop. Make sure you go over to Hazel's blog as she has lots more photos from the day!

Thanks to you both for agreeing to do these brilliant workshops which were enjoyed so much by the participants.

All the lovely donations of home made cakes!

This lovely welcome quilt was donated by Sue before she returned to Dorset - hope you had a great IQD too!

Photos from the hand applique workshop.

The day went so well that I am already planning for 2012!

If you missed this one you better make sure that you will be there next year!

WELL DONE JANET! Looks as though you all had a fantastic day and so much money raised too!. I'll pass on a link to your blog so others can see what you've been up to.
I had a good day too catching up with friends that I've not seen for well over 2 years. Don't think I've talked so much in ages.
