Last night my quilting group, Quilty Pleasures, gathered at my place for a relaxing dinner and quiz evening. We invited our partners as well and had a great time.

I also made a Moroccan hummus and had chutneys from my own produce (the fresh fig and a pear chutney, my own Kasundi relish and a feijoa 'cheese'). The table looked great and had interesting flavours:
