Loraine's beautiful machine appliquéd quilt was made in a class run by Irene Cowie over a period of 2 years. It was quilted by Jo-Ann Phillips of Quiltwise (and Fairholme Quilters). Block patterns were drawn from Circles of the East , The Changing Seasons, and Quilting with Japanese Fabrics.
After the disappointment of her Quilts and Flowers tour to the UK and Europe being cancelled at very short notice on Friday (a casualty of the Icelandic volcano), the award was a welcome lift for Loraine, and it was nice that she was here to receive it. Congratulations!!
Thanks to Ros Pullen for the photo.

Our patchwork bunting is drawing plenty of attention to our Quilt Show at Thornleigh Community Centre this weekend. The show opened on Friday morning, and will close at 3.00 pm tomorrow (Sunday 18th April).
Please join us during the day for the exhibition, some shopping opportunities, and for morning tea or lunch, and pick up some raffle tickets for one of two fabulous quilts, to be drawn at the close of the Show - an excellent way to spend an autumn Sunday.
Our quilt market stalls are from Blueberries and Cherry Pie and Country Pickin's at the Corner, and we have a collection of craft work from Fairholme members and boxes of pre-loved quilting magazines for sale. The monthly Thornleigh Farmers Market is across the road on Sunday morning, and Bunnings is right next door - something for everyone!

These banners will be hung around the Community Centre to indicate our presence next weekend - Lyn came up with the idea when we discovered that signage was somewhat more restricted than in the past. There about this number more to come. We'll be hard to miss!
