The Wonderful World of Blog

I've just loaded photos of the donated quilts and finished tops and QAYG blocks which I've already assembled into quilts to donate. They are shown on my other blog at http://ozcomfortquilts.blogspot.com
I can't believe how many very generous quilters from around the world have sent QAYG blocks to donate to the bush fire survivors.
So far I've received blocks from Iceland, Finland, Singapore, USA, UK, New Zealand and from all around Australia. Some of them have been made and donated by people who have never quilted before and the response has been amazing thanks to all of you lovely people passing on the word and directions to my blogs. The QAYG tutorial is in the Feb. part of this blog.
I think I may have started a new passion for a lot of people if what they tell me is true. So many have said that they never realized how easy it is to make a few blocks using the QAYG method and even if everyone only made 2 or 3 blocks, the number of quilts we can donate will be huge.
So a very big thank you to all who have "got the word out" and please keep the message going as we will need many more blocks to have enough quilts to donate to all those affected by the fires.
The photos shows some of the blocks waiting for assembling so I'd better get back to it.
Hugs and grateful thanks to all of you generous quilters.
