May 13 2010 Quilting Newsletter


Hi everyone, a little late in getting to you this week, my apologies. I’ve been chasing my tail again. A very busy week saw me attend the annual Queensland Quilters Picnic at Gatton (about 100kms from home). It was a glorious autumn day, lots of sunny skies to begin with but a huge thunder storm later in the day, thankfully after the picnic had finished. They had a turnout of about 300 attendees at the Pioneer Village. The highlight of the day was the launching of the World’s Biggest Hexagon Quilt. And believe me, it was an awesome sight. I’m posting a further update article this Sunday, so have a look out for that. You’ll be surprised at the statistics on this fantastic creation!! I’ll link to that article next newsletter.

Yesterday I spent the day with my Linus group, machine sewing binding on some 10 or so quilts. We had about 15 ladies attend, and lots of bindings and labels by hand to complete these quilts for our children in need within our community. It is a lovely day, spending sewing and chatting with like minded quilters all wanting to do something positive for unknown others. We are so very lucky to have the wonderful support of the church where we gather and also the great support of those who donate fabrics to our cause.

Last Sunday I posted some poems by Cindy Thury Smith, a quilter who has featured in the past on the “May I introduce….” Category. Cindy has given me permission to republish these poems, and I hope you enjoy them.

I’ve had a few requests from readers, and I have posted these on the forum. If you think you might know the answers, please pop over to the forum and help us out.

Now, my gifts for you this week are the results of my frequent surfs on the web. I find all sorts of things, not always quilting related, and I hope you enjoy them.

Well, I’d better be off, have a house that’s screaming for attention, but will do a little sewing first of course!! Hope this newsletter finds you and yours in good spirits and enjoying all that life has to offer.
Cheerio for now
