|Julie started early on a quilt for a grea grandchild expected last year - she didn't know if it would be boy or a girl, but she took a punt on pink, and planned to donate it to community quilts and start again if it was a little boy. When Sophie arrived, great-grandma won the bet!|

|Yvette delivered three quilts last week, prompting lots of |
binding activity this week. This one is for Jill's son who asked
for 'toucans and circles' - Yvette quilted in circles and loops.
|Yvette's third delivery was for Pat, whose sister gave her a |
large bundle of oriental fabrics that she didn't think she would
use. Pat made log cabins (one of her favourite blocks),
and is planning to give the quilt back to her sister.
|Lynette has been in 'finishing off' mode for s few weeks |
(there will be some more to see in our next community quilts post).
A collection of loose blocks came to us via Janet, and was obviously
made some time ago. Lynette has set half of them against a background
of a fresh navy spot on white, breathing new life into them. Late last
year Lynette made the first quilt from the original set of 18 blocks,
already in use by a resident of a dementia care centre.
