Community quilts (3)

Our community quilts are a great opportunity to try out designs and fabrics beyond our personal stashes. Some of the unfinished community quilt business that will emerge complete sometime in 2017, at our final community sewing day for this year ... 

Chevron's without triangles - Pat is testing this design
from Crazy Mom Quilts
Julie tried various layouts before settling on this one,
for a nice calm mix of plaid and subtle botanic prints.
Susan split her nine patch blocks to insert diagonal sashing,
producing a lattice effect. Pin basting on large tables
with many hands is a key activity at our sewing days!
And a last look at the remaining baby quilts that have now
been delivered to QuiltNSW's Blankets of Love program.
Earlier in the year some were donated to Hornsby and
Kuring-gai Hospital, and some to Sydney Children's Hospital
at Randwick.
