Community sewing day, July 2016

Our community stash was re-packed this week, after some donations and some fabric selections for works in progress and about-to-be-in-progress. The shelves are once again full. A good day's work - thank you Sue, Sue, Susan, Pat, Dawn, Elaine, Roslyn, Lynette, Julie and Jill.

Dawn paired some disappearing nine patch blocks with
construction themed fabric to make this quilt that will
appeal to a little builder.
Preparation for next month's community sewing day - we will be
handing out prepared bundles of fabric for sewing some quick quilt
tops. They are packed in paper bags, so the contents will be a
surprise. There might be some swapping and supplementation
from the stash!
Julie made this pretty top from sheeting samples that were
donated - she also pieced a backing from the samples,
but we persuaded her that she had actually made two tops
and pulled backing fabric for both from a recent donation.
Sue C was stitching the striped binding on her turquoise
'leftovers' quilt for a child - it's nearly done. We kept interrupting
her to take these photos. Thanks on both counts Sue.
Susan M pin basted two quilts and sorted out fabric squares
for this bright and happy combination.
At lunchtime, Sue H called in with a bag of quilts and some stash fabrics from a home-based charity group that has recently folded, and asked us to pass their quilts on to our community causes. Thank to the Friday charity quilters. Some of the fabric was immediately used as backing for one of the seven quilts we pin-basted on Thursday.

Sue's group are happy for us to raffle this very striking quilt at
our next Biggest Morning Tea for the Cancer Council
- how generous is that?
There are quite a few Liberty fabrics in this pretty quilt,
also from Sue's group - it is beautifully soft and snuggly.
We will pass it on to the Donald Coburn Centre on their behalf.
This gorgeous log cabin will also go to the
Donald Coburn Centre on behalf of Sue's group.
