Community quilts

 We do generally work to size guidelines, but community quilts come in all sizes and shapes, and we find a use for them all ...

Lynette finished sewing down the binding on this bright and cheerful
quilt for a child, generously made and donated by her friend Chris. 
Left over strips from the quilt below (made a couple of years
ago) made another modern graphic quilt - Lynette can nearly
always find a use for scraps.

Sue H's very last community quilt before packing her sewing 
room for a big move - yellows from chrome to palest lemon 
and soft grey green strings, made quilt-as-you-go.
Dawn found the iris print and complimentary fabrics very
appealing when they appeared as a donation (organised by
Sue H). Yvette has quilted the large quilt Dawn made from them.

Daphne and Sue H volunteered to remake
together some donated large pieced hexagons
for our 2017 end-of-year challenge - this
large table runner is the result, and it will
be on sale at our next craft stall (at our
2020 Quilt Show). The remaining fabric
is being made into something else
- no waste here!

Helen made a pretty blue pinwheel quilt for our community
collection, and finished it with a border of cute cats.
