Once again the membership of Sunshine Linus grew and our venue was groaning with the numbers of enthusiastic quilters.
The centre table held a variety of small goods including rice filled fiddle bags,
This month Claire (4) interpreted the book Bugs, Bugs, Bugs,
Lee dropped in some marble bags
Show and tell allowed those present to see and hear about a variety of quilts. Leonie has been busy helping Kaye catch up with quilting and some of these quilts are shown below:
pretty triangles from varying strips,
squares made by Dorothy
stack and whack,
stripes used to effect,
and focus blocks in the centre of a quilt, all of which challenge our imagination.
There is an ongoing need for male quilts such as these two below:
A sombre star motif
and more exciting tiger blocks made by Dorothy to delight a small boy.
Some are specially for girls such as the penguin motif by Jan
Denise presented 3 scrap quilts
while Bev Y returned two pieces seen previously - the cool green lattice and the icy scenes welcomed on such a hot February day.
All in all a sparkling meeting, as typified by Jenny's bright crocheted ball.
As autumn approaches, the types of goods needed will change slightly, so members are urged to consult the Links to see the best focus for their efforts in the coming month.
Next meeting will be on Monday 27 March from 9.30am.
