Finished Quilts Donated

This week I received more beautiful finished quilts and they will really bring some joy and comfort to the recipients. The first quilt came with its own quilted bag, it was sent by Elizabeth Raymond (NSW) and will soon be on its way to Qld.
Janet Stewart and the Candelo Craft Group sent 4 beautiful quilts all in different colours and designs and they are so vibrant that they will bring a welcome bit of colour to their new homes.
The Colleambally Quilters have also been very busy again and have sent 5 more finished quilts as well as 2 sets of QAYG blocks.
The generosity of quilters continues to amaze and gratify me and I am so happy to be able to send these quilts on to people in New Zealand, Qld and Vic who have all experienced such turmoil in their lives and will really appreciate the warm hugs you are sending.
Thank you so much for your donations. I worked hard today and managed to quilt 5 donated tops so tomorrow will be a morning of binding and then more quilting. I'm going to be away next week attending the Australasian Quilt Convention in Melbourne so I hope to see some of you there. If any of the NZ quilters are coming to AQC and would be able to take back a quilt to post to Christchurch please email me as it will be a big saving on postage and every quilt will comfort someone in need. I'm also in the process of setting up a blog button to connect to Paypal in case any one would like to make a small donation to help with the costs for the quilt appeals.
Take you all for your continued support and kind words.
Hugs Jan Mac
