Donated Quilt tops
Just wanted to show you two quilt tops that have arrived at my place for the Flood appeal, I will quilt them asap and get them to someone that needs a quilting hug.
One of the shops I teach at " Peppermint Stitches " Stacey has kindly ask her fabric reps. and we received a large bolt of extra wide backing from Moda to use for the quilts we are making. She has also received a very large suitcase full from a second wholesaler with beautiful fabrics. I am so looking forward to make beautiful quilts and to pass them on brighten someones day.
Hopefully there will be a few helpers coming along on a Tuesday morning and it will get some quilts delivered sooner rather then later.
There are other group sewing quilts and it looks like many Flood affected people will receive a quilt.
We are now looking at a huge Cyclone coming towards the east coast called Yasi, it won't get down as far as Brisbane but when crossing the coast do a lot off damage.
Both the quilt tops came with backing and bindings, thank you to Rena from Germany and a friend of mine Deidre.
ps. I have also received some thread from Walters Import here in Brisbane and some batting from Victorian Textiles, thank you.
