Recent show and tell

Several Fairholme quilters also belong to Studio Quilters,
who held their annual retreat a couple of weekends ago. Linda
was in charge of the mystery quilt this year, that was revealed at
the weekend. This one is Lyn's all finished, quilted and bound.
Louise C also opted for brights, but she wavered
about the black sashing before deciding it could go in!
... and this is Lynette's mystery quilt top, started on
Thursday, ready to take to the retreat on Friday!
Sue B's mystery quilt looks different again.
All lovely.

Linda also organised the retreaters to bring fabric to make
Boomerang Bags that have been donated to a local
coordinating group. 
They made 16 bags for the community initiative to provide a
sustainable alternative to plastic bags.

We've welcomed three new members recently,  Victoria, Jan
 and Sharon, all experienced quilters. These blocks are Jan's
current hand-piecing project - we look forward to seeing the quilt.

Roslyn is gathering an excellent stock of items for the hand
craft stall at next year's quilt show.

Yvette is learning to use a long arm quilting
machine. Her first completed quilt is the one
she started in a workshop with Denyse
Schmidt a few weeks ago. This quick preview
suggests she's going to be very good!
