Our numbers were down a little this week due to the Easter break. There was a lot of activity in the hall nevertheless.
A reminder that the entry forms are due on April 5 for your quilts to be displayed in our show. The forms can be emailed to Iris but a hard copy photo of your quilt is required. If you are entering two quilts, please specify which is Number 1 and which is Number 2.
Grace reminded everyone that Membership fees are now overdue. Unfinancial members are not permitted to enter a quilt in the Show.
Next week we are having a guest from the Hornsby Kuring-Gai Women's Shelter coming to talk to us. This is one of the charities that we are supporting this year.
Also a reminder to bring your half square triangle blocks in for the Community Quilt being organised by Grace. 7" squares in pink colourings are requested. We put some of them up this week and they are looking pretty good. I have a photo below.
Show and Tell:
We have called this quilt "Rioting Colour" and what a feast of colour it is. Pamela R. works as a costume designer. Pamela has fascinating stories to tell. She was fortunate to work on the costumes for the the film "The Great Gatsby".
Pamela made this beautiful quilt which will go to one of our charities.
Marie K. made this pretty quilt using fabrics designed by Kathy Doughty.
Sheila finished another baby quilt for the Grace Centre at Westmead using soft coloured fabrics. Above is the front and below is the back.
Some girls had returned their half square triangle blocks in pink for Grace. I love the way the diamond patterns emerged. I look forward to the finished result.
This quilt from Pamela R. is also made from leftover fabrics from Pamela's work as a costume designer. Lush velvet fabrics are used giving the quilt a luxurious look and feel.
We have called it "Purple Passion".
This quilt will be donated to one of our charities.
