Congratulations to the Running Quilter

Helena, 'our' Running Quilter,  beat her own record time in the City to Surf fun run by 1 minute. As well as expressing her dislike of Aussie hills,  Helena thanked all her quilting supporters for contributing to her charity - Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Women's Shelter.  

Lots of photos to share from Thursday:

Work in progress and all for community

Shella,  Judy, Beryl B and Susan D are working on these blocks


Robyn S, Marie, June, Jenny and Iris ... pinning this top together ready for quilting



The latest design from Grace:  a present for a friend



This block close up illustrates the amount of boro stitching involved


Two finished quilts to add to our community stash:

Jenny's quilt 'Cocktail Strings'  
( I understand that cocktails were involved during the making!)


 see the detail ...



Many hands have been involved with this appliqued and pieced quilt - started in the Stitching Lounge at the 2016 Quilt Show:

Aptly named 'Stitching Lounge Vases'


June and Marie made most of the star blocks and Grace did most of the quilting.


Baby quilts ...   six more from Lindy - all made from the most lovely children's fabrics


and a cute one from Susan D. using the technique from Grace's workshop a few months ago. 
Also, pretty fabrics.



A donation from Laurel to add to the decor of Fairland Hall:    my pictures do not do it justice. It is worked with narrow ribbon on sheer fabric.    Needs to be examined closely.  


 Lets hope that all the other users of Fairland Hall appreciate the work.


That's all  -  enjoy a week of stitching and hope that Elva is feeling better for next week.    Iris
