Tables are decorated, eveyone brings a SMALL plate of food to share, fun and games deciding the best response to the Chrismas fabric challenge. Voting is by coin donation - the one with the most coins wins. Coins are donated to charity.
Here is a bit more from Joanne:
I'll be letting everyone know about the outline for next year. It's a little bit different and some advance notice might allow ideas to percolate. But we all need a little bit of a challenge to keep those grey cells active.
The final list of design options is:
1- black, curves/circles, stars
2- orange, diamonds/hexagons, people
3- blue, piecing, plants
4- purple, crazy picing, words
5- white, applique, houses
6- red, spots/ stripes, hearts
7- green, embellished/ embroidered, birds
8 - yellow, pictorial, bugs
QFO had made and donated over 200 quilts this year to organisations in the ACT - Marymead, Ted Noffs Foundation, various of the refuges, Karinya.
