Iris on blog as Elva battles the dreaded winter head cold.

The May issue of the Template was shared and read in detail as we recognized that so many of our members were highlighted.

  • The 2017 QuiltNSW Raffle quilt was designed and made by the team from Material Obsession: congratulations to our members, Kathy, Carolyn, Helena and Grace who all participated.   It is a stunning quilt with lots of string piecing and Kaffe Fasset shot cottons.  Grace did all the hand quilting. 

  • Jessica was one of the key speakers at the QuiltNSW country meeting to Tamworth, so she was also featured in the magazine with one of her quilts: 

It was agreed that this issue of the Template was an excellent read.  And of course, don't forget the 'back to Darling Harbour'  QuiltNSW Show next weekend.

August 2018 may seem a long time away,  but Meg is ramping up the preparation for our show.   Chat with Meg about your involvement.   Check out Susie's latest hand crafted item, a cute door stop, for the Stage Shop: she would love some cute buttons.

Community:  Although we don't know how much our quilt contributed,  we have been told that the Giant Steps fund raising ball raised a record $500,000.    They were extremely delighted with the result and sent a thank you to all their supporters.

Show and Tell  ...

A bright fun cot quilt from Grace:  hand quilted of course !

For everyone who is going to the show next Thursday,  I hope you have an inspirational and fun day.   I expect to bump into many of you when I get there on Friday.    Enjoy your week,  Iris
