Quilts For Christchurch

Today I sent off another box of 6 lovely quilts to Cat. I finished the binding on the first two shown here which were donated tops and I still have 3 more to bind. The quilts were all large enough for adults and will bring warmth and comfort to the families who are still living in difficult circumstances in Christchurch, where they are still experiencing disruption to their power supplies and no means of heating in the majority of cases.
I'm sure they are worried about the health of their families as winter approaches and hopefully the quilts will warm bodies as well as their spirits.
The last quilt arrived today and will be on its way to Christchurch next week. Robin Walker from Tasmania sent a large bag of fabric as well as a lovely quilt made and donated for Christchurch. It is made from beautiful machine embroidered blocks in golds and greens and the workmanship is stunning. It's a really lovely quilt and I'm sure it will be loved in its new home.
Thank you all so much for helping Cat and I to send quilts to Christchurch while they recover from the devastating earthquake. I'm sure that receiving the quilts will also remind them that they are in our thoughts and prayers. Thank you also for your donations of money which makes it possible to send so many quilts to NZ and soon to Japan.
I hope you all have a weekend filled with fun and laughter and plenty of sunshine.
Hugs Jan Mac
