First community sewing day for 2016

Our five 'Pittwater Quilts' are now finished.
This one was sewn by many hands, and quilted and bound by 

Lynette.You can see all five here, with the story of their 
connection to Patchwork on Pittwater.
Lynette made this 'potato chip' quilt from a jelly roll in her stash,
and quilted 'in the ditch' with her serpentine machine stitch.
There was a fair bit of fossicking among the bright fabrics
in the community stash, as we planned several children's quilts.
Lynette is making broken dishes blocks using tans and browns
from the community stash. She always has several projects on
the go at once.
Sue C was sewing her 9 patched and spaces into a strongly
diagonal design, with lots of variety in the pretty, light value fabrics.
Elaine W laid out her soft and beautiful blue nine patches on
point, with silvery-grey counterpanes. It's looking gorgeous.
Georgie, Pat and Linda B made several tiny quilts for one our
local maternity hospitals, using the pastel colours, flannelette
and soft cottons they have requested.
