Our next project is an as-you-go quilt. Some of the ladies are making a queen-size, whilst others are making a lap quilt in the same design.

During the past month we had some sad news, Margaret Kerr passed away. Margaret was a long-standing member and our thoughts are with her family at this time.

Our thoughts are all so with Bev O’Rourke and her husband who were both injured in a traffic accident. Get well soon, we hope it won’t be to long before you are back on the Coast.

During the last 12 months, we did a block of the month. This was mostly applique and some of the ladies have finished, however, most of us are still plodding along with it. The end results are great!

Not only do we make quilts of all shapes and sizes, we also make smaller items such as bags, cup holders, table runners and placemats. So, you do not need to make a quilt if you want to join us. You do not need an expensive machine either. If you are learning, a straight sewing machine is good enough.

We meet Tuesdays at 9am at the Community Complex, corner of Tin Can Bay Rd and Bayside Drive (next door to the Cooloola Bowls Club). For more information, contact Jacquie Cross on 5486 4468
