Several new members joined us yesterday. During Show and Tell they soon saw the wide variety of items we make and hopefully have gone home inspired to start creating. Welcome to you all.
The first three quilts are from Pat who only joined Sunshine Linus last month - and I haven't included photos of all the quilts she showed us!

Good to see that Margaret is back sewing after several operations.
Glenda from Mountain Quilters donated this colourful quilt.
This bright quilt definitely shows the Sunshine Linus spirit of co-operation. Leone attended a workshop run by Kaye N and then got Nicky to do the quilting.
|result is one bright quilt!|
|another team effort|
|Nicky also quilted this one|
|Nicky's quilt will be raffled for the Cancer Council's ABMT|

Some quilts take a while to make, especially when you wonder how to finish one started by someone else. This was only half a quilt when Orrawin was asked to finish it - 2 years ago!

The members of Sunshine Linus would not be able to make as many quilts as we do without donations of fabric. Last month Annie from Caloundra donated two huge deliveries of quilting fabric. Kaye N quickly snapped up this beautiful Japanese fabric and made two quilts.

These four weighty critters will be used to calm and ground autistic children. The textured materials will also make these tools playful.
On Saturday 22 August we will be holding our second Open Day and Quilt Show. Make sure you come along to see how we contribute to our community and be inspired by the amazing array of quilts. At the same time you can enjoy a Devonshire Tea and explore the sales table for that one off gift for Father's Day, a relative, friend or even yourself. I think that these two quilts made by Claire B will be quickly snapped up from the sales table.
Our next gathering day is on Monday 29th June but members don't forget the working bee on June 15 when you can help get ready for the open day or sort and cut donated fabric.
