July Community Quilts

Our members generously support our community quilts program by giving their time and expertise, and by donating quilts and tops they have made from their own stashes.:

Georgie has been decluttering, and has generously donated
the appealing colourwash heart quilt that she made in a
class with Yan Pring some years ago, to our community
quilts collection.
Thanks Georgie - it will be much appreciated by the
Donald Coburn Centre.
Lynette cleverly made strippy chevrons with offcuts from
another quilt, and added white half-square triangles. The
backing fabric compliments the top beautifully.  She too
has donated her quilt to our community quilts collection
 - thanks Lynette.

Dawn  made cobblestone blocks to use up the
scraps from an earlier 'construction' quilt and
complimentary prints.

This sweet little panel didn't need borders - they
were already part of the print. It has a cosy
flannel backing, and was quilted and bound by Dawn.

We pin-basted a number of quilt tops at our July community
sewing day - this vibrant top was made and donated by Robin,
from her legendary stash.  The design is from the classic
Spectactular Scraps, by Margaret Rolfe and Judy Hooworth.
Thank you, Robin.
