APRIL COMMUNITY DAY

Perfect timing for community day, as we have had requests for more baby quilts. This coincided beautifully with another of Grace's excellent workshops, which was dedicated to turning 2 and 1/2 inch strips into tubes, which can then be cross-cut into squares, with a range of style organisations. The result is an instant 26 by 26 inch square needing only backing wadding quilting and binding. We had fun participating, and I'm sure at least 12 new small quilts will be ready for a cut-off day of 28th April. 
Robyn S has requested this date because we can then get a new bunch of little quilts to the Grace Centre in time for Mothers' Day. Perfect! This doesn't by any means prevent anyone from adding to the workshop ones, in fact keep them coming, please!

Thanks once again for all your organisation, skill sharing and guidance Grace. We all really appreciate it so much.


Grace hard at work.....

I'll try and remember to bring the old microphone next workshop to assist the presenter's vocal chords!

All our thoughts to Josie who had a fall this week. Not only did it cause a broken arm, but it ruined her travel plans! Commiserations Josie from all the girls. Hope it's on the mend soon.

A reminder that the 28th April will be the next Show Meeting at 9.30am at the Baby Health Centre. Now that Lindy has all entries on record, she can start the layout planning. This is important in terms of ordering the correct numbers of frames etc among other things. The layout will include the member quilts for judging, the baby quilt display, the raffle quilts, a little corner devoted to quilts designed and worked by young children (primary school age) and their grannies or parents, plus some waggas and community quilts as well. It's going to be another fantastic show, with a little bit of something new each time!

SHOW AND TELL

These three delightful baby quilts were presented today. The first two are by Robyn S, and the last one is by Susan H. Gorgeous fabrics and lovely designs. Thank you ladies for keeping up the flow. They need plenty more......!

                              


        


                                  


Moina showed us a quilt she has been working on. She is particularly proud of the quilting in the smaller flower blocks, which is delightful. A lovely piece of work.

                        
 See you next week everyone. Keep enjoying the cooler weather. Finally!
