On the way to the fire victims

Recently NOTYQ sent fifty quilts to help the fire victims in NSW.  Here they are setting off on their journey.

Huge thanks to everyone who helped make these much needed community quilts.
Have you been using the NOTYQ online Library Catalogue?  If not you should give it a try.  Chris wrote some easy to follow instructions in the July 2013 newsletter or click HERE to see them online.

Our clever Anita

Recently Anita was approached by Melbourne designer, Michelle Rae to collaborate on her entry in the Melbourne Cup Fashions on the Field.
Here's what Anita wrote about the project

We collaborated on the design which reflected the Flemington Roses, feathery fascinators and the blooms of spring. Here is bodice fabric that was quilted with my hand guided longarm quilting machine. The design graded in size down the piece from very tiny at the top to fairly small at the bottom.  This was one occasion when ‘quilted to death’  was the way to go.

Isn't it brilliant and here is the finished garment.
Pop over to Anita's blog, Hillside Quilting to read more.
