Highfields quilters become happy scrappers

Kathy discussing possible quilting projects using the strip cutter
The KoolKats made a 10 minute trip up the road to Highfields to hold a Scrap Happy workshop with the Darling Downs Quilters Guild.  Around 16 ladies participated in the workshop, and the most popular activity was cutting fabric stashes into 2 1/2" strips.  Kathy gave a presentation of her quilts made with jelly rolls or fabric pack strips, and various blocks and other shapes made possible with dies from the Accuquilt Studio cutter.

While the winter wind swept across the open Highfields plateau on the day of the workshop, we were pleased it wasn't held the following day, overcast, westerly winds, and thoroughly miserable weather!
