Recently, Kaye was the guest speaker at Kawana Quilters. After telling them all about Sunshine Linus she gave a quilting demonstration. In return, Kaye received a number of donated quilts.

Joy had me fooled by these two quilts. From a distance it looks like applique but she has made great use of fabric panels. Very deceptive!

Kaye N has been clearing the cupboard this month. The purple creation used up bits left from making a quilt for a relative. Have a look at how she used fleece to make a quilt!

|Leonie's dinosaur army quilt|
After discussions with the Buderim Private Hospital, Judith made a pattern for a stillborn pod. It is made from a lovely soft fleece. It will provide some comfort to parents dealing with the stillbirth of a child.

Thanks to cyclone Marcia, last week was very wet on the Sunshine Coast. Events were cancelled and we were asked to avoid all unnecessary travel. Obviously, for Sunshine Linus members that means we can sew, knit and create. Here Liz K shows what wet days a lead to.

If you like the look of this quilt then you had better buy some raffle tickets at the Sunshine Linus Open Day which will be held on August 22. Thanks Sandra for making our first prize.
The next Sunshine Linus meeting is on Monday 30 March. Just a reminder for members, there is a workshop on Monday 16 March.
