Painstaking work pays off for keen quilters
GETTING down to Lemon Jo’s in Mundubbera every Wednesday is a way to spark creative juices.
Mundubbera Lemon Quilter Lyn Carline explained the work done there was design, stitching and sewing. It can be months of painstaking work.
The piece is then sent away to be quilted at Glenbar in the Maryborough hinterland.
“The quilting is quite expensive,” Ms Carline said.
All borders then have to be trimmed and hand stitched.
After 12 years of sewing, workshops and practice, the group is turning out work second to none.
“The group works so well together, bouncing ideas and giving each other support through the design and the sewing,” Ms Carline said.
“Over the years we have perfected the making of quilts and now we making bargello quilts which is one that is made of strips of fabric sewn together.”
The art form will soon be on display in the Mundubbera Art Gallery.
LEMON QUILTERS: Irene McCosker, Debbie Green, Alicia Trot, Gail Quilter, Lyn Carlyon, Glenice Robertson and Jocelyn Robertson, show off some of their beautiful work.
