KIds' Quilts Again

I have managed to get two more donated quilt tops finished and these are lovely and colourful to warm a small child's heart and body.
I haven't achieved as much as I would have liked due to working night shifts but at least two more quilts will be donated to their new homes very soon.
Hugs, Jan Mac

Fabulous Quilts for Kids

These beautiful quilts were all made and donated by quilters from Girgarre and Kyabram. They are so colourful and the kids will have so much fun with the eye spy squares.
The larger ones will go to a group which runs camps for abused kids, aged from 6 to 12, and the rest will be donated to people needing some comfort.
Thank you all for your very generous donations to the needy.
Hugs, Jan Mac

QAYG Anyone?

I hope you're not tired of QAYG quilts, as thanks to more donations, I've managed to finish and donate 3 more. Most of these beautiful quilts were made from some of the blocks donated by Kaye and the Rochie Patchers.
Last year the town of Rochester was inundated with flood waters and in fact many people still haven't been able to return to their repaired homes. Many of you sent QAYG blocks and quilt tops which were finished and donated to people of Rochester, as well as many other places affected by last year's floods.
As a thank you for all your donations, the Rochie Patchers from Rochester have made and donated 121 QAYG blocks to be made into quilts and donated on their behalf, as a way of paying it forward and thanking all of you for your generous donations.
I am back into quilting tops as well so will have some more to show very soon.
Hugs and thanks, Jan Mac

Finally Time to Quilt

I've been working extra shifts which have been mostly nights so sleeping has taken priority over quilting for the last few weeks. I did manage to get a couple more quilts finished.
The first one was made from QAYG squares donated by one of the ladies from Kyabram and will be ideal for a male.
The second one was a set of blocks which someone had made to practice their hand quilting. I put them together using the QAYG method too and will make a lovely lap quilt to donate.
I'm off to work again today but hope to get some more quilts finished soon. I've also been asked for another 35 quilts for a camp for abused kids so I'm starting on those as soon as I have time. Luckily I have had some tops for kids donated by Lesley and her friends from Kyabram so just need to find time for the quilting.
Hope you're all having some quilting fun.
Hugs, Jan Mac
