Quilt chal­lenge done

Bush Telegraph - - TRADES AND SERVICES DIRECTORY - By DAVE MUR­DOCH

When Leah Satherly was be­queathed a set of in­com­plete quilts from her late sis­ter Su­san Plum­mer, to­gether with ma­te­ri­als, pat­terns and tools, she passed them on in April this year to the Cot­tage Quil­ters to see if they could com­plete them.

The club read­ily took on the chal­lenge with Pam Smith un­der­tak­ing the gar­gan­tuan task of com­plet­ing a hand sewn quilt Su­san had been mak­ing for Leah.

Six months on and the club’s nine mem­bers dis­played the fin­ished quilts dur­ing the Cot­tage Quil­ter’s Ex­hi­bi­tion at the St Joseph’s School Hall.

Pres­i­dent of Cot­tage Quil­ters, Bar­bara Chris­tian, and past pres­i­dent Pam Smith with the fin­ished quilts from the es­tate of Su­san Plum­mer.
