26 October, 2015 meeting

There must have been about 80 hard working ladies at the Nambour Uniting Church this morning for the monthly Sunshine Linus meeting.  Lots of quilts and other items of comfort were displayed during Show and Tell and then distributed.

I'm obviously getting used to my new phone and camera. The standard of sewing is great unlike some of the photos. A few quilt photos didn't even make it to the blog!  It will be better next month.

Hard to see the detailed embroidery here

from Edith's cutting Orrawin creates a quilt - great team work!

Denise made good use of these bits and pieces

Leonie is one of a number of members who are long arm quilters.  Here are a number of quilts pieced by other people that she has been busy quilting in the past month.

Barbara's first quilt - quilted by Leonie

a busy house quilt

Joy's brick quilt

pieced in Townsville - finished on the Sunshine Coast by Claire B

Leonie liked quilting this playful cat quilt

Leone and Bonnie were asked to make a touchy feely as a book.  The pages are laced together with shoe laces and can be flicked through like a magazine.

You never know what you will find on the freebie table.  Helen took these modern technology squares and turned them into a quilt.

Annie added lots of hand embroidery to this quilt 

sorry about the photo Claire B - a cancer charity quilt 

Rosemary's touchy feely for a visually impaired boy

a fishy wall quilt made by Yvonne and
finished by Claire

Some of the bagful of tiny premmie hats donated by Chris. Thanks for thinking of given then to Sunshine Linus.

During the month the second version of Wonky Donkey was delivered to a local special school.  I hope the children are enjoying it and the weighted dog!

Our next meeting is on Monday 30 November 2015.  A reminder to members that this is also the AGM.
