Last community quilts sewing day for 2014 ... progress and finishes

The camera captured one photo and then declared itself 'exhausted'  last Thursday ... otherwise we would have shown you more of our work on this very hot day. We were thankful for air conditioning, and cold watermelon (and fresh doughnuts, thank you Miriam!). 

A lot of sorting and finishing off was done, and some new fabrics selected for new projects.  Some people have taken their projects home in case they feel the need to make some progress during the summer break (we did talk about the meaning of  a 'break', briefly ... ) and some were returned to the 'works in progress' box until we resume in February. 

We are working our way through our substantial, largely donated fabric stash, and one empty container at the end of the day (this is big news - our storage space is very tight!) with some re-packing. 

That One Photo - Elaine B finished putting these funky blocks
together into funky chevrons, including a pieced border that
has just one side to be sewn on. Good to see them out of the box.
Lynette finished off two community quilts earlier in the week, and Barbara sewed on their labels today:

Lynette make this child's quilt from a
donated panel and some stash fabric borders.
She quilted it with her favourite straight
line cross-hatch variation.
It will be donated to a child in need
through the Quilters Guild of NSW
This is another Lynette finish - she has a gift for 
picking up where someone else has left off and 
producing great finishes.  These blocks were 
donated with the applique completed, and 
Lynette found a vibrant sashing fabric make 
them come alive.
It too will be donated to a child.

We enjoyed more stories from Roslyn and Miriam, who have both recently returned form trips to the US, taking in the International Quilt Festival and other events.  Thank you for sharing your photos and travel tips - iPads are the best!

Thank you everyone for your contributions throughout the year.
