We’ve Finished Some Quilts

What a lovely selection from our busy quilters. Rosie is donating her quilt for AA’s raffle this year. Linda made several cot quilts, the pink and blue are “disappearing 9 patch” – the red and white one is “disappearing 4-patch”. The two at the bottom are sampler quilts with various patterns. Our Community Quilters made the humidicrib covers, which are 50” x 50” quilts for the local maternity hospitals, to stop the glare of the lights affecting the babes.  The Community Quilters are always making quilts from donated materials, especially on the 4th Saturday each month. They have donated to many refuges on the Central Coast and to the Blue Mountains Bush Fire Appeal recently. By Eileen.
 

Quilting Raffle

We are holding a raffle to collect money towards the replenishing of our wadding and material stockpile which has recently been diminished by our participation in the Blue Mountains Fire Appeal.  We supplied 20 quilts and assisted in finishing another 15 which, together with many donations from all round the country, were given to all those who lost their homes in the recent fires.  Prizes are shown below.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThis crazy quilt was a joint project by our Wednesday morning group.  Each person creates a square so apart from the matching centres, they are all unique but still complementary, and combine to create a bright and beautiful quilt.

DSCF5685This pure woollen blanket was made by our Tuesday group.  The wool was handspun by the group and we asked our best knitters to knit the squares and stitch them all together.  What a lovely warm blanket to snuggle under on cold winter evenings.

Tickets are $2 each or 3 for $5.
