Yesterday we welcomed Lisa Walton of Dyed and Gone to Heaven (http://www.dyedheaven.com/bio/) to Toowoomba where she conducted a workshop for fifteen of our members. Participants had the opportunity to stretch their imaginations by using a variety of thread and fabrics to create unique fabric landscapes. Marilyn was kind enough to show her work-in-progress. Completed landscapes will feature in a future blog.

We have a small group of very dedicated quilters who direct much of their effort to making quilts for donation to people in the wider community. The quilts are frequently the result of a team effort and they often find their way to victims of the regular natural disasters we experience in this country.
These two have been completed recently. Some readers may recognise the double disappearing nine patch quilt that Joan was working on as a demonstration during our 2013 Exhibition last September.

The string quilt was made following another pattern so kindly shared by Bonnie Hunter on her Quiltville website (http://www.quiltville.com/).
