April 2016

Once again, our products demonstrated the wide-ranging abilities of Sunshine Linus members and of those who donate to us. Members of the committee are tireless in their efforts and in setting an example. Despite recent surgery, Cynthia found time to produce this small quilt from donated hexagon squares.

Special orders are often handled by Claire T and Judie B and this month was no exception with the Noughts and Crosses velcro wall hanging game,
 the adorable weighted green pooch,
 the weighted octopus,
a classy chook,
 plus as sensory brick mat.

Rosemary displayed a variety of attachments that members could make for use on the touchy-feely aprons and rugs for which we have constant demand. 
 Soft toys made by Dorothy from airline socks were a novelty.
Rosemary has been busy again preparing kits for brick quilts, an interesting variation of which was produced by Ann.
 Scrappy quilts were popular this month , demonstrating how creative members
are in using small pieces of fabric. Dorothy produced several small quilts including some with curved corners on the binding while Orrawin combined greens and blues to challenge which was the "right"side.

We are fortunate to have several skilled long arm quilters including Edith and Kaye who combined in this elegant pink quilt. Edith also quilted the appliqued floral quilt below.

 Francis W supplied several quilts today, including the colourful clouds design and the autumn leaves.

Glorianna made good use of small squares while Vicki has made a colourful strip quilt and some duck squares suitable for wheelchair lap quilts.

A star  block quilt  made by Christine of Beerwah, some foundation pieced animal blocks from our Chinchilla supporter and a large colourful quilt from Bribie Island Quilters are indicative of the donations Sunshine Linus receives each month.

The Southern Cross design from Liz K refreshed interest in the project which sends quilts to Australian servicemen and women overseas.

Dorothy's chequered flag reminds members that we are always at the beginning of a new venture with Sunshine Linus.

The next meeting will be on Monday 30th May.

 Members should check their next Link Newsletter for information about activities
 before 30th May.
