March Community Day

A community day with so much happening.    First,  news from Judy:

We received a thank you card from the Susanne the President of the Phillip Group of the CWA for the donation of Jessica's wagga.   It was raffled to raise funds for disadvantaged children in the bush.

Membership - due now:  don't forget, if using direct deposit to the bank add your name to the transaction to allow Grace to reconcile the receipt.

Jenny added four new books to the library:  I did try to take a photo, but before I could they were distributed throughout the hall!
  • Creative Stash and Scrap Quilts ( a donation from Val)
  • Dear Jane
  • Millefiore Quilts
  • Take an Element by Margaret Sampson

We received the latest issue of the Template:  there was a mention for our work on Fidgety Quilts.

The hall was buzzing with activity.

Robyn J and Alison were preparing the backing for the 2018 Traditional Raffle Quilt.  The blocks are all together, hand pieced by Robyn, and quilting will start soon.

Narelle and her 'Orange' Group were working on this cute block for a community quilt:

Marie G, was the machinist as the 'Blue'  Group put  these blocks into a quilt top:

Show and Tell was all for Community .... thank you!

Grace made this quilt from Kathy D's fabric range:   Kathy's Birds

Last week Jenny showed us this quilt top:   ...  this week it is a quilt !   Finished off with some good free motion quilting - Vi's Blues

The 'Red' Group,  Judy G, Susan D, Sheila and Beryl B,  finished their community quilt -
 Block Buster

Robyn Jo. showed us the quilt top that she has just made for community - featuring some of Robyn's perfect red work.  We need a name, please ??

Cot Quilts for Grace Centre  ...   a total of nine were received  this week.

'Cats' from Susie and two pastel 'animals' from Marie G.

Three from Susan D, with a focus on elephants

Three from Carolyn - bright cheerful cows and a few rabbits

And finally, it is not all about quilting.   A supply of teddies for 'Em's Friends' -  Em distributes the teddies to police personnel so that they can be given to children in trauma situations.

Nine teddies from Robyn Jo. all super cute

A family of four, knitted by Norma and finished off by Robyn Jo.

That is all.  Enjoy a stitching week.   Elva will be back next Thursday.   Cheers,     Iris
