Wow what a wonderful donation of quilts from around the world which have arrived for the Christchurch Earthquake and Australian Flood Appeals. The first 2 fabulous quilts were made and donated by Petra McLennan (Vic) and they will soon be on their way to Emerald in Qld. The next 3 quilts were made and donated by Maria Wilson (WA) and 2 will be going to Chch and 1 to Qld and their lovely colours will bring lots of smiles. The following QAYG quilt was made and donated by Julie Lawrenson-Wood from England and she has made a stunning quilt which will be going to the people of Emerald (Qld) for the flood quilt appeal.
Margie Wallin (NSW) sent another beautiful quilt with the lovely blue fabric as a border and it will be going to Qld too. The three last quilts were all made and donated by Jo-Anne Dick (Tas) and they are so lovely that they will be loved by the people in Emerald who receive one of these quilts.
Thank you so much for all your generous donations and I'm honoured to be able to send them on their way to their new homes on your behalf. The people who are giving out the quilts to their community report that they are very well received as a personal gift and they are overwhelmed that people they don't know would take the time to make and then donate such beautiful quilts.
Take a bow ladies as you making a big difference to many people who were about to give up hope. More to come,
Hugs Jan Mac
