Painstak­ing work pays off for keen quil­ters

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

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.
