Plenty of Quilting Happening


I'm just getting back into the swing of quilting again now that I've returned from all my quilting travels.
It was lovely to take a break and over the last few days I've been busy finishing off another QAYG quilt as well as working on UFOs. I have finally pieced a top from donated bits and pieces. It's a Scrappy Bargello pattern from Bonnie Hunter's Quiltville site and it will be quilted very soon so it can be donated to the women's refuge.
I also received some lovely rice bags from Maria in WA and she told me that her grandchildren helped her to finish them. I love to hear that you are getting others involved in making things to donate as it's a good lesson for kids to know that they can help others too.
I also received a large stack of QAYG blocks from Stephanie D. in WA when we attended the SCQ Retreat last week. They will be the next quilt to be assembled.
I also received other donated quilts and will post their photos on my other blog at http://ozcomfortquilts.blogspot.com
Back to a block challenge now for AQA and I'll post details later.
Hugs Jan Mac
