Thanks to my wonderful husband Peter who has quilted four more quilts and who helps me in every way he can holding quilts doing dishes and making me endless cups of tea. He is the sweetest man alive and please remind me of this when he is suffering his next PTSD episode lol. Whenever I thank him he says he is just earning brownie points when I say what for he just smiles lol.See photos...
I had the pleasure to give Karen and Dwayne W. a quilt today and a little sewing kit she wants to learn to quilt so she can help. She chose a wonderful quilt made by Lynne Scott and asked me to be sure to thank her very much and tell Lynne she loves it is beautiful See photo.

Quilts I've finished this week

This week I've been on night shift so not as much time to sew as I'd like. Still, the week isn't over yet so I may get a lot done over the weekend. The two quilts were donated tops that I've finished and the QAYG quilts are all from donated blocks from around the world.
I've also received QAYG blocks from Bev Dean (WA), Melinda Connelly (USA), Fiona McClintock (WA), Stella Bromilow (Vic), and Busy Bee Quilters from WA who have sent 82 QAYG blocks. I can see a very busy time ahead while I assemble them all into quilts.
Hugs and many thanks Jan Mac
