Thursday 24th April

Now that school holidays are almost over,  it will be good to have everyone back sewing next week for Community Day (1st May) and a 'fabric making' workshop organised by Jessica, Helena and Susan.    All 'fabric' made will be used for community quilts. The only thing we each need to bring is a small cutting mat and a small rule.

And another reminder  - playing cards to be finished and ready for display on May 8th: just before Mother's Day.   Jenny already has 27 - so 27 more to go to have 'The full Deck with two Jokers'.

Interesting up-coming event:  The Quilt Study Group are holding their 20th Anniversary Seminar on 6th and 7th July 2014 at the Australian National Maritime Museum, Darling Harbour.   Check out their website - it is a very interesting program,  including our own Jessica as one of the guest speakers.   Monday 7th, is 'Quilt Uncovering' with interesting quilts and their stories from four well known quilters.

Only one quilt was shown at 'Show and Tell',  but my camera found a couple of extra 'not quite finished' special quilts ...

This is a community quilt, made by Jessica and quilted by Gil ... 'Avalon 1'

Check out what Elva is making for her granddaughter  .....Magic Faraway Tree ?

And while the rest of us have 4 or 5 blocks stashed away somewhere safe  ...   look what Grace has done with her NY Beauty blocks !

What else can I say  ... keep sewing 'till next week.     Cheers Iris
