Quilting for Fun group helping local museum

Our latest quilt is a “Hearts” quilt which we donated to the Exmouth Museum.

They are raffling this quilt off to help the museum raise funds to survive.

Our quilting group is delighted to donate this quilt. Every member of the group shares the work on our quilts in one way or another, from design, practical sewing, laying out, basting, quilting and finishing! It’s very much a group effort. Our session together help build up our support for each other and this is carried through and beyond our sessions. It makes our completed quilts a bit of each of us. We are delighted to offer our help to the museum, which should remain in the heart of Exmouth. We will be selling tickets over the coming months! An added bonus is that it also promotes the U3A in Exmouth.
