Donations: Firstly a Big Thanks to Sew This and That from Morayfield who have closed down and generously donated many of their display quilts to Sunshine Linus. Those of you who attended their classes may recognise some of these:
Regular contributions from Bribie Island Quilters must also be recognised, including these below:
Small Quilts: There were several small quilts displayed using bright contrasts and traditional half square triangles.
Judie B returned many such quilts which she had quilted and finished.
Borders: Some donated tops required borders to be attached to make them a useful size so Judie added these borders prior to quilting.
Sunshine Linus has a donated embellisher that can be used at the venue to cut shapes such as Judie's daisies and native animals on these quilts.
Wendy used bright sashing and borders from "boots" fabric and a "dashed" effect around squares on point on these quilts.
Squares, squares and more squares indicate how our members use the smallest of pieces of fabric donated monthly .
Bright fabrics are sued here, Liz employing dark sashing,and a shadow box effect creates special interest.
A little different: President Kaye was challenged by this "Freebie table" kit using flannel.
Anne, who usually presents beautiful appliqued designs, made her first attempt at foundation piecing - a great choice of blues and cream,
while Secretary Denise showed mastery of the ruler quilt demonstrated by President Kaye in 2017.
Lyn used the Dresden Plate on this quilt made with donated silk ties, plus a carry bag for a kidney dialysis patient
"a bit of everything" utilised random pieces from the Freebie table.
Not only does Daphne sort donated material each month, her arms must have been aching from displaying the Show and Tell quilts on stage including these two she had made, each bright and effective.
We look forward to more treasures at our next meeting
on Monday 26 February.
