Thursday 31/10/2013 News

It was good to be able to applaud the Australian winners at Houston:  Rhonda Pearce, Jennifer Bowker and Helen Godden to name a few.   The full list of winners and their quilts can be found on  http://www.quilts.org/winners.html

We received a thank you card from the President of the Country Women's Association, for the donation we made to their fundraising event.    The quilt we donated was of 'wild flowers' quilt made by Robyn Jo - our knowledgeable queen of wild flowers.

Thanks to some shopping by our librarian Beryl B.,  we now have two new books in the library:  Modern Patchwork and Quilting on the go.    Both have been logged into the library and ready to be borrowed.

Robyn Jo gave us an update on the Coolatah Quilters:  they raised $3,900 for the Prostate Association  from their 'Socks and Jocks' exhibition and Trivia night.  Robyn's entry - I wish I had a picture -  was selected to hang in the Prostate Association's office.

Show and Tell :     Thank you to Suzi M who was our  photographer this week.

Gil went way outside her norm to made this pretty quilt in liberty fabrics:   the Eiffel Tower backing just worked so well.  
(Sorry, but Grelims have turned some of the pictures the wrong way and despite all my efforts, they have won !)


(The Eiffel Towers look more like Leaning Towers of Piza!)


Janet hand pieced this huge quilt - 2000 plus pieces.  Susan St J quilted it for her.


some detail ...


Joy shared her flannel  'Splats'


Thank you all,   have a fun sewing week and see you on Thursday for Community Day,
Cheers Iris
