Lyn Who?

Earlier this month a busload of Toowoomba Quilters members attended the Queensland Quilters Annual Picnic that was hosted this year by Rosewood Craft and Quilters. We had an excellent day with lots of laughs and retail therapy.  It was a great venue and glorious weather which must have delighted our hosts because we had some terrible days before and after the event!


Lyn, Lyn, Lyn, Lyn & Lyn

Apparently we have five members in our club called "Lyn" and someone observed that all five were on the bus excursion that day. What better excuse for a photo of five of our lovely members - all known as "Lyn" (although some were named Lynette.)

 

Many thanks to Lyn (on the right in pink) for organising  the bus trip for us.

Community Quilting

Members have been busy making Bed Runners for a local nursing home that will soon be moving in to a new complex, so the club's community quilting group got involved and with the assistance of quilters from Gatton and Warwick made 36 bed runners for the residents' to put on their new beds.





 Trish showed her completed Bargello Quilt. Looking wonderful!


A group project held recently helped members to make a hexagon drawstring bag. They are great and can be very useful for keeping sewing needs in.


 
Angela displayed a quilt she quilted on the sweet sixteen for a close friend.


Lynne made this very striking baby quilt for a friend
