Stunning Show Quilts

Hi Everyone,

Quilts:

What a treat we all had on Thursday. Alison photographed half of the quilts our members have made for our Show which runs from Friday 10 to Sunday 12 August.
We were blown away by them! This is going to be such a show! I can't wait.

Rosters for the Show:

There are still empty places on the rosters especially for Sunday. If you can spare some time to help it will be greatly appreciated.

Donations:

Last week we donated 2 lovely quilts to Inala for their raffle. Inala is celebrating 60 years of providing the highest quality support to individuals living with disability. A worthy charity.
We received a very nice thank you email from them.

Member News:

We received a newsy letter from Felicity who is home now after a long stint in hospital. It was good
to hear from her.

Laurel joined us this week. Laurel now lives in Bowral so cannot come to meetings very often. Laurel brought some fabric for us to share and will be helping at the show.

Show and Tell:


Susan St John displayed the quilt above. Susan said she has now 'nailed flying geese'. They look great Susan.


Laurel made this lovely baby quilt. The little rabbit fabric is from a former Member, Violet. Such a wonderful memory.


Baby quilt from me! We had a lesson on Improv design, where you deliberately make blocks 'wonky'.
It was fun to do but really went 'against the grain' after many years of trying to make the perfect blocks.

Until next week .....
