More Quilts for Christchurch

The earth tremors are continuing in Christchurch and the residents report their anxiety in trying to rebuild their homes as well as keeping their children safe during these ongoing tremors. A news report on my other blog gives more details.
In the meantime all I can do is quilt and send them over to Cat for distribution to families in Christchurch who are living in appalling conditions with no heating and disruptions to power.
The first quilt here was made from a donated top and backing. I also found some binding in the box of donations which worked well with the colours in the top.
The second quilt was made from blocks donated by Cat and both of these quilts are lovely and large and the bright colours will be loved by teens.
The last quilt was also made from a donated top and will bring comfort and warmth to its new owner. I quilted one more top but still have the binding to finish. So far I've finished 6 quilts for Christchurch in the past 2 days and will be sending a box off to Cat for distribution this week.
Many, many thanks for all your help with these quilt projects.
