Beautiful Quilts on Display

Wednesday's Meetings got off to a great start, Wendy displayed her Christmas Wishes Quilt at Needlework Group in the morning.Wendy with her beautiful red and white 'Family Christmas Wishes' quilt, she made this quilt and embroidered all the family names on it in time for last Christmas in honour of 'Pop' who is no longer with them.
What a lovely idea, to be able to find your name, remember Pop and make a wish on a beautiful quilt.

A very Handy Hint
The back of 'Family Wishes'. How clever is this! not wanting to put more holes in her wall, Wendy made the rod pocket to the size of her existing wall hangers and then using velcro on the corners made a removable extension for the rod! quilt hangs beautifully and no extra holes in walls.

Denise with one of two Christmas Tree wall hangings that she has made for her sons, she will be taking this one with her when she goes to visit her youngest son in Birmingham.
The other quilt is for her eldest son in Townsville.

Helen with a lovely softly coloured quilt that she has made for her Grand daughter's birthday. Helen will deliver it in person when she visits her Grand daughter in Tassie.
Julie with her 'end of projects' quilt ( I really don't like the term scrap quilt). Julie has made this for the Spinal Muscular Atrophy group for them to raise funds either by raffle or auction at a fundraising day 'Art Affair in the Garden' being organised by the Nambour Garden Organisation. We will be hearing more of this as the time draws closer.

Another quilt from Julie, this one is for her nephew's baby that is due soon, lovely tropical colours for a Cairns baby.

Ladies and Wips!

Barbara working on place mats for the Easter Fair.
Maureen showing one of her beautiful japanese fan blocks,
Winifred with some english paper piecing, the girls tell me they have named it 'Winifred's Octopus' because it keeps curling around her arm as she stitches.

Janet working on her 'bring along' handwork, a Sue Daley 'playing with paper' design.
