So this is the first meeting for February because we actually had a day out with lunch at Brooklyn on our official first February meeting.  And did we do an amazing job this time??  Yes, yes, yes!  Remember the spectacularly huge bunch of quilts last meeting?  Well we equalled it this time, with 30 completed quilts and a bunch of beanies, scarves and baby wraps.

We had two lovely letters; one from St Mary's Villa thanking us for our donation of quilts and one from the Fred Hollows Foundation, thanking us for the cash we donated from our Christmas whip-around.

But the truly exciting news is that there is an article about our group which has been published by the magazine Australian Patchwork & Quilting in the current issue - Volume 27 No. 12.  That's the front cover on the left.

 First off the rank in Show & Tell was Bev who brought in three ....

She also quilted this one, which was made by Jill
Coleen's friends Maureen and Margaret donated a huge pile of gorgeous Japanese fabrics and panels a few weeks back.  Evelyn had great fun making them up into no less than 7 quilts.

A huge thank you to Maureen & Margaret for their generous donation which has enabled us to make so many quilts.  And to Coleen for being the enabler.
Evelyn also made these next 3 quilts.

Robin made the following 5 quilts

Helen made up 2 little flannel wraps, and a bunch of beanies & scarves.  The beanies are extremely popular in the nursing homes and in the Palliative care unit.

Robin quilted this beautiful Queen sized quilt, donated by Dawn
And Jan used some donated hexagons to make this up
This was another donation
Jill made the next two

And Cheryl this lot....


Aren't the last two just so cheery??
That's it for now - hope I got all of that right.
