This week at Fairholme ...

Our 2016 Quilt Show is just a little over 6 months away, on 8th - 10th April, 2016, at Thornleigh Community Centre. 

We are working on all aspects of planning the event, as well as making sure we have enough quilts finished to mount a good display for your enjoyment ... we will include quilts made for various purposes, some made from workshops over the last two years, some community quilts, and a small-quilt challenge. 

Entries will be finalised in the new year, so exactly what will be on show is still a surprise all round ...

Sue C takes up fudging! She did the maths, then in consultation 
with other quilters she threw them away, made her corner blocks 
over-sized and them back to fit, and is quite satisfied with the result.
When Elaine W found that these beautifully coordinated fabrics
did not suit the purpose she intended them for, she made
two quilts anyway, and generously donated them to our community
project. The second one is being quilted. They are both
warm, rich and appealing ... and very welcome.
A little de-stashing is going on - in preparation for our stall at
next year's Quilt Show. Roslyn is coordinating the process and
enjoying making up coordinating packs of fabric pieces of various
 sizes, culled from more than 30 individual stashes.
Ideal for scrap quilting, to enhance your own scrap stash.
