Quilt 1 - Scrappy rose with a swirl
Firstly I handled strips . It took me 2 days to sort through and to pull out the the wider strips (2 inch and over). Then came Quilt 1.
Quilt 2 - Chevron - quilt as you go.
Still had lots of strips. The selection was getting a bit narrower around 2 inches and under. I also noticed that the colors were getting a bit more subdued which really had me itching to add new fabric but I managed to hold myself back.
coming up next ....
I have sorted though the scraps again and removed all triangular shaped pieces. There seem to be a lot of similar ones - mostly unused pieces from older one block wonder quilts and pieces that were trimmed off from the mariners compass quilts I made last year.
By the way , I now have only one (overflowing ) box + a bag of selvedges .
Will keep you updated .- Nonie
Once every two years the community of Hunters Hill Quilters in Sydney put on a quilt show in aid of a chosen charity. This year, as they have done since 2003, they were supporting Giant Steps, a local school for autistic children. Having helped raise funds myself for Nicosia's Autism society in the past and recently having set up a special charity section at our Patchaouri 2014 exhibition for the Sophia Foundation for children, I was really keen to go and see how things happen for charities in OZ and in a quilty way!! They raise money from admission to the event , a raffle , the sale of donated quilts and through the sale of various handmade smaller items. I managed to take some really quick photos for all you quilters to get a feel for what was there...sorry about the quality but the lighting was not great for photos and you had to be really quick before someone stepped into the picture!!
There were a total of 51 quilts displayed by the members of Hunters Hill Quilters this year . I have linked a few buttons below to sites for those interested....Maro
PS. Happy first day of Spring/Autumn !!
