Prize Winner

Lyn Crump Prize Winner

Congratulations to our member, Lyn Crump from Busy Quilting, who took out first prize in the Commercially Quilted Section at the Toowoomba Show.  The quilt also took out Champion Quilt of the show.  Lyn purchased the pattern which is a Crabapple Hill pattern in the U.S. and the quilt is called “Over the River”.  Well done, Lyn.            It is difficult to see in the photo, but there is some beautiful hand embroidered sections in the quilt.

This quilt will now go to the Brisbane Exhibition’s “Quilts Across Queensland” show where they have a class for the champions of all the affiliated show societies.

This gorgeous rail fence quilt was put together from fabrics we had donated from the wonderful ladies at Indigo Niche for community quilting.

The club sets aside the third Saturday of each month for community quilting. We now have enough quilts to send out to flood affected areas and the community quilters will now work on special quilts for autistic children.

Thank you most sincerely to all those people who have generously donated materials and their time to our community quilting project.
