COMMUNITY DAY 4th Feb 2016

As always on the first Thursday of the month, the group mainly devoted time to working on quilts destined for the community collection. You can see from the shots below some busy tables sharing the load.



..... and one 'quilt as you go' beauty being spread out on the floor for group discussion and perfecting


The news and communication board was brought up to date, with all relevant dates now posted. This will help everyone keep abreast of when things are due in, and when events are happening. All dates are recorded on our website as well, so you can also check there if you're not at group at the moment.

We had a wonderful donation of fabric from Carolyn, and another load from a visitor Christine, who has recently closed a business. Iris eagerly selected prime pieces for community quilts, and the rest were for general use. Many thanks ladies for these 'gifts'. It's always a particular pleasure to sort through yet more fabric!



First up this week were two baby quilts for the Grace Centre. The first from Val, and check out the backing fabric! Extra cute....



The second was by Robyn S using a lovely selection of colours. Very nice ladies, and much appreciated.


Iris showed a gorgeous quilt, made for community from a bag of scraps donated by Hayley. With just a few addition of her own, Iris says she used up every scrap. And the result is superb!


Iris was also snapped holding yet another of her creations - this gorgeous bag which matches and houses another quilt. What a quilting workaholic! Well done Iris. Beautiful as always.


And finally a work in progress by Maree G. This collection of minute hexagons - a huge variety - is looking amazing! Done with papers, some of the pieces are extremely small. An amazing effort Maree. Well done! Can't wait to see the final product!


And so our year bursts into life once again. There's really no stopping this group! 
Happy quilting everyone. See you next Thursday!
