Reminder from Robyn S: the need for cot quilts for the Grace Centre continues. So if you need a quick quilt gratification - whip up a cute 26 inch square, all cotton baby cot quilt. It would be good to have a new supply ready for delivery before Christmas. Robyn has the cotton wadding that ready for use.
Community donation: this is from an over-achiever !! Remember last week - 7 days ago - I showed a picture of work in progress:
This is it on Thursday ... Grace works wonders ! It is finished - even the hand quilting and binding ! Great quilting with variegated crochet cotton - there is some in the cupboard for everyone to use. The fabric was a gift to Laurel from an 'old' HHQ girl, now at HobbySew ( I hope I've got those facts right, Grace - if not correct me in a comment, please !)
Show and Tell ... a wagga, started by Gil and Doreen at the 'working with wool felt' workshop, and then picked up and finished by Grace. The hand quilting lines add order to the random shapes of the wool felt. Illustrates what you can do with 'just little bits' and a creative imagination!
And a 2nd 'exhibition' quilt in two weeks by our other prolific quilter, Jessica. The theme is 'Water, Warp and Weft'.
Thank you to Alison for being this week's photographer - I forgot my camera.
Have a productive sewing week, Cheers Iris

It was a birthday bonanza with Alison, Janet, Marie G and me all celebrating birthdays this long weekend.
We had an email from Betty to tell us about a 'thank you' parcel that she received from Sunshine homes. They had a very successful raffle of the 'Blue Quilt' made by Marie K. which we donated earlier in the year.
After enjoying the 'good shopping' from Material Obsession during September, we can now benefit from good shopping at Quiltsmith: 25% of fabric from Tuesday 8th October through to the end of October.
Show and Tell: two new quilts have been donated to our community stash ...
