An interesting mix of quilts this week at Fairholme

Rachel's wall quilt is made with a range of pieced batik
fabrics that provided the quilting design

Sue H made this very cute quilt for a child - it is another donation 
from her Friday charity group that we will give to QuiltNSW 
on their behalf to be passed on to a child in foster care.
Jo-Ann found these two Indian made coverlets (they have no
batting) in a shop in Proserpine in Queensland during a recent
holiday. The patches are all silk, the backing is cotton,
as is the heavy stitching. They are queen-sized.

Jo says she can't decide which is her favourite, and there were 
several others that could have happily come home with her.
Lyn is stitching a village - we are enjoying watching it
emerge from her needle.
 Elsa started this vibrant traditional Bolivian piece while stitching
with her sister who was visiting from her home in Brazil
Sue put in the very last stitch of the binding on her
community quilt during Monday's meeting.
