February 2016

This being a leap year and the month of February, it is fitting that we start with two quilts built around a heart motif

As always, there were many Quilts based on classic designs: a bright 4 patch,

 Leonie's clam shell

 and Baltimore style applique,

Orrawin's strip blocks and cool mint green quilt below.

Quilts for boys and men are always needed and Lee's small boys space dreams and Joanne's tools quilt fit the bill.

African animals in yellows and greens provide a great theme while stars adorning a men's quilt made by Bev and an interesting sampler quilt met some of that need. Requests for men's and boy's quilts are constant.


Two girl's quilts were presented- Sun Bonnet Sue made by Orrawin and an I Spy quilt full of interesting detail to engage and educate the young child.

Recently, Sunshine Linus has received many embroidered squares, both hand embroidered and machine embroidered, which have been used to great effect. 
Evelyn's pussy cats are eye catching while the hand stitched embroidered houses have been used by Kaye with assistance from Mountain Quilters

The machine embroidered motifs in this nine-patch combination have been assembled by Kaye.

The following quilts were donated by Moyra whose daughter assisted with the embroidery.

As always, our quilt making is supplemented by a variety of other goods.

A crochet cape looks comfortable for a less mobile person with autumn approaching while, below, bereavement pouches are intended for the maternity ward of the local hospital.

 Toys, Xray bags and small articles aplenty grace the distribution table.

 The jiggle glove is a new item intended for patients with dementia.

Some members display "touchy  feely" items - rugs and an apron also for dementia patients provided by Rosemary.

Claire has once again been creative with Spot and the sausage dog destined for the Currimundi Special school and her latest book quilt, based on The Rainbow Fish.

Our next meeting will be on Monday, 11th April as the last Monday in March is Easter Monday. All are welcome.
