March Meeting

What a fabulous turn out we had today - ladies everywhere!
And they were all very busy.

Judie gave us a lesson on rotary cutting.
I've since heard that Leone went straight home and cut over 300 squares!  What a trooper!
Several ladies from Mountain Quilters of Peachester have joined us, and they are all very prolific and supportive.  Mountain Quilters will be having their quilt show on 26th and 27th May this year and have invited Sunshine Linus to have a stand at the event.  We'll be looking for ladies to help out on the day, mostly just talking to people and telling them what we're about - how hard can that be?
We've also been invited by Kawana Quilters to attend their Show and Tell on 16th May.
Some of today's quilt tally
Thanks to Kimz Sewing and Patchwork of Warana who donated quilt tops from a workshop they had recently, and many other donations from friends who don't attend our meetings - thanks to all of them, we do so much appreciate your support.
And here's some more.  That's a touchy feely on the right
So, by the end of the day, we had ready to deliver:
18 quilts to Nambour Hospital;
16 xray bags to Nambour Hospital and 28 to Premion in Brisbane;
6 knitted/crocheted blankets to Blue Care and 1 to Premion;
 8 TouchyFeely Quilts to Mitchelton Special School;
10 Chemo turbans to Nambour Hospital Oncology;
27 pairs children's pyjamas to Lions Emergency Accommodation;
6 knitted matinee jackets, and lots of baby beanies and booties to Mater Hospital in Brisbane.
The pile just grows and grows

How special to have flannel rainbow pj's
 We're going to have an extra sewing day on Monday, April 16th, to try and catch up with some of the quilt tops that have come in and still need to be quilted.  So come along and bring your sewing machine and walking foot or free motion foot, and whatever else you think you'll need.  We'll have the tops and backs and wadding and pins, etc., and Judie is going to be giving tuition and helpful tips.
See you all then,
