Quilts ready to Ship

I received more utility quilts from Glady and her quilting group in Dimboola (Vic) (shown in the last photo) and these will all join my next shipments which are going to East Timor and Pakistan. The news reports say that 6 million people have been affected by the floods in Pakistan and they are in urgent need of help. These are not nearly enough to help all who are in need but will help a few people and hopefully make their lives a little better.
The other quilt of simple squares in red and yellow are the simple utility quilt tops that a friend has been putting together for me and they will be ideal for the next shipment. I've also been finishing off more donated tops as shown here. I have more to bind today and will update with more photos soon.

More Beautiful Donations

While we were away the Myall Quilting group, in NSW, made and sent me these fabulous quilts to be donated to the people of Kinglake who have been affected by the bush fires. They will bring so much comfort to their recipients and will wrap them in a warm hug.
I have some here from other quilters too and will take them to Kinglake when they are ready to receive them. Many are still in the process of rebuilding and will love to have them to decorate their new homes.
I am also working hard on quilting some of the many utility quilt tops I have on hand and these will be going to Pakistan as over 2 million people have been affected by devastating floods there.
I still have bindings to do on some and will post photos soon.
