Tangled Web Quilters Xmas Luncheon

              We all decided to go to the Patchwork Cafe at New Norfolk, which has only recently opened, for our Xmas luncheon. It was a lovely mild summers day as we all arrived separately around 12.00. After a look over the fabric, patterns and books in which is a good selection and growing all the time, we sat outside under a large shadey tree and ate a lovely lunch with good company

                As a Christmas swap we had to wrap the fat quarter in a creative way. Here is mine
                     It is a Christmas decoration with a fat quarter inside,   well actually its a balloon with a fat quarter inside it with a pretty chrissy ribbon on top. I fold the FQ very small and  stretched the balloon over it and the blew the balloon only half way up, so it would not be too fragile. It did survive until it needed to be revealed.  It was a lovely afternoon and Im sure everyone enjoyed themselves.


  1. Oh feel jealous of the warmth. I've got blizzards at the moment. Glad you had a good time and love the balloon idea.

  2. I love this idea. How simple, yet so smart. Using the balloon to wrap the gift is wonderful. Sounds like a lovely day was had by all as well.
