The May issue of the Template was shared and read in detail as we recognized that so many of our members were highlighted.
- The 2017 QuiltNSW Raffle quilt was designed and made by the team from Material Obsession: congratulations to our members, Kathy, Carolyn, Helena and Grace who all participated. It is a stunning quilt with lots of string piecing and Kaffe Fasset shot cottons. Grace did all the hand quilting.
- Jessica was one of the key speakers at the QuiltNSW country meeting to Tamworth, so she was also featured in the magazine with one of her quilts:
It was agreed that this issue of the Template was an excellent read. And of course, don't forget the 'back to Darling Harbour' QuiltNSW Show next weekend.
August 2018 may seem a long time away, but Meg is ramping up the preparation for our show. Chat with Meg about your involvement. Check out Susie's latest hand crafted item, a cute door stop, for the Stage Shop: she would love some cute buttons.
Community: Although we don't know how much our quilt contributed, we have been told that the Giant Steps fund raising ball raised a record $500,000. They were extremely delighted with the result and sent a thank you to all their supporters.
Show and Tell ...
A bright fun cot quilt from Grace: hand quilted of course !
For everyone who is going to the show next Thursday, I hope you have an inspirational and fun day. I expect to bump into many of you when I get there on Friday. Enjoy your week, Iris
