Quilts For Japan

Two more QAYG quilts finished off today before we take a few days break on a camping trip. I also posted off 2 quilts to Japan, 1 was a kid's quilt and the other was a QAYG quilt in more subdued colours. These two quilts will most likely be going to Qld to people affected by the floods. I found some blocks which were predominantly purple and used a paler sashing and on the other quilt I used a red, green and black print for the sashing. I'd bought a bolt of this Christmas fabric very cheaply some years ago and when it's cut up into sashing strips the print provides a nice contrast with the lighter coloured blocks.
Combining blocks from many different donors has meant that they are colourful and will brighten someone's life.
Many thanks for your help and donations.
Hugs, Jan Mac
