Last of the Library Bags...
Machine Embroidery Group was asked to make as many as they possibly could to help out the kiddies at three of the flood affected schools in Ipswich, 90 being the total number needed, with help from the Patchwork Group the target was reached with a few extras that can be pressed into service to tote togs to school swimming lessons, so they certainly won't go astray. Well done all!
Sue had a bit of a UFO clean out, Catti snaffled them up and finished off the goodies for our Sales Table. Thank you to the donor and the finisher...
Catti also made this cutie, the 10th Quilt of Love requested by the Selengor Private Hospital.
Made from a pack of co-ordinating fabrics received a few years back with a magazine subscription renewal Lorraine has created this 'floor' quilt for her Great Granddaughter Charley. Originally there was a pattern included but as quite a number of the 10" squares happened to include the selvedge edges in the measurement, the box was put on the shelf to await inspiration. Lorraine has cleverly cut and assembled the blocks used to form a stepped pattern while still using some of the 1 patch blocks. There was enough fabric left over to allow Lorraine to piece the binding to match the quilt.
Jackie bought along two of her completed wall hangings, both of which spent quite some years in the UFO pile.
