November 24, 2014 meeting

Last month Jenny found a "Mr Sunshine" pattern that she thought her Mum would be interested in. One month later Claire B brought in this sunny quilt top.  Next time we see the top it will have become a Sunshine Linus wall hanging.

You never know what show and tell will bring.  It is always interesting to see the variety of quilt designs and uses of colour.  I also like to see how non-quilting fabrics are used.  Lots of non-quilting fabrics are used in touchy feely quilts and aprons but picture quilts are my favourite.  Here you can use just about anything.

Look at the detail Karen has put into this clothes line and the angel hiding under the cloud.  Bet you can't wait to read on to see the whole picture!

Last month we were asked to think about making children's quilts for the next Special School in our region.  The result was some very colourful and creative pieces.

Jan and Carolyn are looking for people to help make simple hospital gowns from light weight fabric that has been donated to Sunshine Linus.  You don't need to be a dressmaker - 2 shoulder seams, 2 zigzag edges down the back, biased binding neck and attach some ties.

There is no meeting at the end of December, instead we will be having our Christmas lunch on Monday 8th of December.  Hope to see you there.
