Another Happy Morning

Hi Everyone,

We had a big group attend this week. As always it was good to catch up with everyone's news.

Iris piled the 18 quilts going to the new Womens' shelter on the side table. What an impressive lot.
The new shelter is in Beecroft for women over 55 and for a minimum stay of two years. Twenty women can be accommodated.
Sallyanne wanted to have a quilt ready for each lady as she arrives.
I am sure the quilts will bring comfort and warmth.
Thank you all for your effort.

Iris then announced that our cupboard is bare! We will have to get busy.

The wadding will arrive next week.

Helena's Workshop next community day - Wendy William's Pieces of my Heart Quilt:

Helena has been given permission from Wendy Williams to hold this workshop over the next two Community days - August and September.

What to bring:

Choose a colour for the heart
Choose a contrasting background for the centre
You need a bigger square for the centre of the heart
More fabric cut into strips between 2" and 3" wide
Background fabric strips can be up to 4" wide
Ruler
Cutter

From what I understand the heart is made from pieces of strip fabric.
