Lyn has only been quilting for 6 years and has accomplished such a lot in that time. Her love is applique and she has some wonderful quilts to share with us.

This month, Margaret showed us some of her quilts and her sewing room. Another very talented Qld Quilter who loves her craft.

This month, Di Hendriks opens her house and allows us a peek into her sewing room. She loves making bags and most of the quilts she makes are given to loved ones. She reckons she’s made over 50 baby quilts.

Project Linus volunteers are always busy cutting, sewing, sorting fabric, chatting and enjoying time with each other. The knowledge that the quilts they make are wanted, needed and appreciated by so many is thanks enough. Contact can be made with Project Linus through Qld Quilters’ Vice-President – [email protected]

This interview is with Jan McPike – an eclectic quilter and member of Queensland Quilters. She is prolific and loves all that quilting has to offer. Apologies for the cut-off at the end of the interview – Chris Jones is still learning this stuff.

Interview with Jo Dunglisson, a Brisbane artist and member of Queensland Quilters. She explains some of the methods used in her quilts and we get to see her studio and lots of her work. This is the first ‘interview’ done by Chris Jones – please forgive the amateur aspect – it’s a learning curve.
