This week (and last week) at Fairholme ...

Dawn has transformed this cute teddy bear panel into a warm
quilt for a child with some borders, a warm flannel backing
and all-over stipple quilting. 
For the community collection.
A mix of car, bus and truck prints makes a gorgeous
medallion, coupled with a variety of black and white
prints (including the tiny check that appears grey in 
the photo), 
put together by Barbara. Lynette added straight line 
quilting and striped binding. For the community collection.

Janice pieced this beautiful braided design from a 
coordinating range of Moda fabrics. 
Machine quilted by Jo Phillips (Quiltwise).
Margaret lighted upon a collection of bold, bright fabrics
from Africa at a thrift shop in Berowra. She handed them on
to Val, who took up the challenge of making a quilt to
express their African origins, with some additions from her
own stash. She has called it African Dance, reflecting its
rhythm and life. machine quilted by 
Jo Phillips (Quiltwise).
We were delighted that Heidi Tamlyn, who won the quilt
Marmalade in our 2014 show raffle was able to join us this
week to collect it, after having agreed to leave it with
us so it could be entered in the Sydney Quilt Show in July.
Heidi kindly emailed '
I am absolutely thrilled with my new
 quilt.  I am so lucky to have won it.  It was lovely coming
this morning and meeting (Fairholme) Quilters.'
Denise Knowles 'collected' The Kensington Quilt, that she also
won in our 2014 Show raffle in April (see this post), and
immediately gave it back for entry into the Sydney Quilt Show.
She too collected it into her permanent keeping this week. 
Thank you both for allowing us to keep your quilts for the Sydney Show.
