Recent community quilt finishes

This vibrant quilt is another generous donation from Robin W
- the high contrast but controlled colour palette and the scale
of the blocks (the squares are 3") serve to elevate the
disappearing 9 patch design into a sparkler.  It will join
the collection for children. Thank you Robin.
This one was something of a slow burner, several months in the
making, but worth the wait. On one of our community sewing days,
our chief colourist/designer, Roslyn put the fabrics together from our
community stash, and Miriam happened to arrive with the perfect
pattern to show-case them. Pieced by Miriam, quilted by Jill, and 

it is bound with a 19thC reproduction print that is totally different 
from all the other fabrics, but just the right colour mix and 
almost-a-stripe design. The pattern is Kakadu Dreaming 
by Kathy Adams of KoolKat Quilting.
Dawn has been working in pairs this month - this quilt and the
one below are made from fabric panels donated to the Quilters
Guild of NSW, and made up to a good size for children's quilts
with the addition of sashing and borders, and machine quilted
by Dawn on her Sweet Sixteen. They will go back to the
Guild to be given to children in foster care. 

Dawn also made this sweet little pair of Blankets of Love
from fabric donated to the Guild, complimented by some 

from our community stash.
