Wow the girls have been busy.........Pat has finally finished her quilt top for her friend....and it looks great.....the dark blue and pink borders make a real statement.

This is Junee's  first quilt. When Junee came to her first class she asked if I would help her make a simple and colourful quilt.  Junee bought her pattern in and we showed her the Kaffe and Amy Butler fabrics and she was hooked in a flash. Christine who works at the shop helped Junee add other fabric to get more variety into the quilt top.......I think it looks fabulous........

This is Patsy's table runner with the border on, just needs a little quilting and binding........

 A lady came into the shop with this runner to get some threads for the stitching and quilting.....looks the colour combination.

 Last year Patsy made two Stack and Whack sets of blocks to make a queen size quilt. After the quilt was put together there were two blocks left and look what Patsy has done.  What a great idea, both blocks have been framed and now hand above the bed that has the quilt on it.

This week after class we are having a sewing afternoon to make laundry bags, quilts or quilt tops for the Aussie Hero's....check out this site... If you would like to make a laundry the instructions are available on the blog they need to be made to a certain size, same for the quilts. The group is trying to as may bags and quilt as they can to be posted by the 15 March. They will then arrive in time for Anzac Day. To read more please visit the blog
This is what I have sorted out so far, from the blocks that were donated last year.

I hope we get a few laundry bags made, to send down to Jan-Maree. Anyone is welcome to come along to Kimz shop to sew, or cut or iron for the afternoon, it's BYO machine and fabric.

Happy stitching - - - - - - -
