News from Thursday 15/8/2013

Too many sad things made up the news for Thursday:  our dear quilting friend Adrienne has added breast cancer to her 'see-saw of wellness' - they were Adrienne's words. Our thoughts are with Adrienne.

Robyn Jo's mum quietly passed away last Friday and one of our newer members, Marie B, passed away very suddenly on Tuesday.

2014 Quilt Show:  Jenny gave us an update on the plans.  Professor Mary O'Kane, NSW Chief Scientist and Engineer has agreed to be our Quilt Judge.   Mary's engineering  background and her interest in embroidery will make for an interesting choice of winning quilts.  

Jenny also made a point of making telling us, that everyone is expected to exhibit a quilt at the show - her comments were - no exceptions and no excuses.   And she will be checking !

Events coming up:
  • Northbridge Quilters Quilt Exhibition, Thursday - Sunday 22 - 25 August, 10am to 4pm, Gallery 307, 307 Sailor's Bay Road, Northbridge.
  • Epping Quilters 2013 Show,  Friday 6/9/2013 11am to 7pm and Friday 7/9/2013 9am to 5pm, Don Moore Community Centre, North Rocks Road, Carlingford.
Quilts for Nepal:  two more finished quilts.   Rhonda is picking them up next week.

 'Football Mates'  (because of the print in the centre fabric). 
Pieced and quilted by  Lindy from the 'cupboard stash' :  bits and pieces from the 'yellow' box.

Ocean Blue:  simple and effective with great quilting, by Gil and Doreen.

And Show and Tell from Jenny ...  another super idea for using those 2 inch squares - good for 'hiding'  the 'not so good' or 'old lady' fabric scraps.

Enjoy your week and I hope it is a good one  ...   Cheers Iris
