Community quilts 2017 - 2018 (1)

After packing up and delivering 28 community quilts last week, the next collection is already growing, boosted by generous donations.

Susan M used a multi-sized grid to showcase the large and
medium scale of these prints, calling to mind Shoji screens.
The red sashing is a brilliant choice, and Susan has quilted a
background of flowers all over.
Bet you can't guess who made  'Raspberry Delight' (and used
 all fabric from her own stash) ... Sue C did not include a
single skerrick of blue, even in the back. Now to decide
whether it will be for a child or for a nursing home resident?
Sue says whoever chooses it will have to love raspberry pink.
It was lovely that Barb was able to join us at community sewing
after several months of being needed elsewhere - and she brought
along this pretty soft floral top made with a variety of squares
from the community stash. We easily chose the deep cream backing
from the recent donation by Material Girls Down Under.
This vibrant floral panel print and the backing fabric were
also donated by Material Girls Down Under. Dawn found an
 excellent dark green border in the community stash and
it was quickly quilted, bound and labelled. 
Three children's quilts were very kindly donated by Lyn
Stephenson, a friend of Julie's neighbour. The last photo
is the reverse of the third quilt.  Lyn obviously has a fun
stash of fabric and likes sewing for children.
