This week at Fairholme ...

A friend gave Miriam an embroidered tablecloth as
a memento of her late mother. It was showing some
wear and deterioration, so Miriam decided to extend
its life by hand piecing some Joseph's coat blocks in
Liberty and other fabrics, and appliqueing them over
the worn parts, and repairing the crocheted edge.
Miriam revisited 'Kakadu Dreaming' (pattern by
Kathy Adams of KoolKat Quilting), which she
made for our community quilts collection in 2014.
Watching Sue's little blue hexagon teacups centre block
evolve into her magnificent, mostly hand-pieced quilt under the
guiding hand of Margaret Sampson George has been a pleasure.
The top has now been declared finished, and once backing
is chosen, Sue will hand quilt it.
