Some of the Quilts from the SCQ Retreat

There were many quilts donated at the SCQ retreat and I'll post photos of them later. These were finished off at the Retreat. The blue QAYG with the heart centre was made by Sandra McLay (Vic) and the bright QAYG was from Vicki Lynch (WA). Lola from Sunbury (Vic) took home a set of QAYG blocks and put the beautiful rainbow coloured quilt together. The QAYG quilt with red binding was made at the retreat and I finished it off at home. I also received many donations of QAYG blocks and tops but I'm sorry that I didn't record them at the time.
Thanks you all for your very generous response to this drive for quilts.

Quilts to Jan Mac

These beautiful quilts came from Sharyn Caspar and her friend Artie in Numurkah, Vic, Jan Stewart (NSW), Bronwyn Walkley (Vic) and Sue Gross from New Zealand. Sue also included an lovely letter of hope with her quilt and I'm sure that it will bring comfort to whoever receives it.
I also received more lovely tops and QAYG blocks from Linda Farley (WA), beautiful top from Kath Maher (NZ), and QAYG blocks from Alicia Ingram (USA). Blankets of Love in Townsville (Qld) also sent 4 large boxes with tops, knitting items and sewing kits. Linfox very kindly shipped them free of charge and it is very much appreciated.
Hugs Jan Mac
