Wonderful lunch, and some quilting

Time to catch up on a few events from last week. I know this picture looks very odd but my bible study ladies had a very special lunch last Thursday (mind you we have yummy morning tea every week and a lunch each term!). We had been watching Babette's Feast so decided to have a feast for our end of term lunch. We had all the courses but didn't really have turtle soup or quails in vol au vents but these little birds did decorate our delicious vol au vents!
It was so nice to see Terri's version of the school block in the My Town BOM. It has motivated me to get going on my block.
On Thursday night, I went to the Canberra quilters meeting and the speaker was Brenda Smith of Serendipity Patchwork and quilting. She is an art quilter and has just taken part in several wonderful collaborative quiilts called Twelve by Twelve and there is a book with all the quilts in it. The quilts were made by 12 artists and are 12" square and are based on a given theme. Brenda had lots of her quilts to show us and pictures of the other artists' quilts too. They were very interesting and used so many different techniques, including embroidery and printing. Here are just a few.
