Bev, Cheryl and Jill reported that they went to the Concord Hospital Palliative Care unit's Christmas morning tea for volunteers, which they thoroughly enjoyed. The Unit Manager gave them a guided tour of the facilities.
We also discussed a couple of new options for donations. More on that later, should we proceed with that.
We had an amazing number of quilts come in. Absolutely everyone outdid themselves over the Christmas/New Year break. Without any further ado, this is what happened:
The first 6 are from Evelyn:
The one above (blurry photo - sorry!) and the next are made from the same pattern. Isn't it amazing what a difference fabric makes to the outcome?
The fabrics for this one were donated by Coleen.
Cheryl made this one with donated blocks:
And she quilted this one made by Dasha
Cheryl also made this one:
The next two were kindly donated by QuiltNSW
Cheryl quilted this one, the top was a donation:
Jan brought in 6 quilts. The first was a partially complete donation - hand pieced:
This next one was also a partially completed English Paper Pieced quilt donated to the group, which Jan completed.
This one made by Dasha
Bev made the next three:
Apologies for the poor quality of the next photo. Gorgeous novelty fabrics with dogs, and I have taken a dodgy blurred image.
And Helen was busy knitting oodles of beanies and scarves, and some little baby wraps as well:
So now would you like to see what all of that looks like? The is the entire dance area in the hall covered with quilts. However not all of them are complete yet, so not shown in the photos above. The efforts of 9 members!
We decided to have our annual January excursion on the 1st February, and we will be going to have lunch at Brooklyn on the Hawkesbury River. For those of you who are not familiar with Sydney, this is about 1 hour on the train north - the Hawkesbury is the northern limit of the outer metropolitan area.
See you in February.
