Lots of Parcels Arrived

Yesterday the mailman brought 11 parcels as well as a letter from the USA. The letter was from Carol Lee with a generous donation towards the cost of making and donating quilts and will be put toward batting. The lovely pink QAYG blocks came from Debbie V. from Qld and she sent 19 as well as some more pink fabric to make more blocks to match. Merilyn F. (NSW) sent a set of 12 QAYG blocks.
Linda S. from WA sent 12 QAYG blocks and Beth M. from ACT sent 16 QAYG blocks in purple shades.

Joy from New Zealand sent 14 orphan blocks and Fran Remden also from NZ sent 2 QAYG blocks.

Jill McCoy from New Zealand sent a set of 36 QAYG blocks and Kerry S.(NSW) and Andrea (Vic) both sent a large box of fabric strips. Margie W. (NSW) sent 4 lovely quilts shown on the other blog at Oz Comfort Quilts.
And last but certainly not least, the Coleambally Quilters (NSW) held an extra sewing day specially to make some QAYG blocks and they sent 2 sets of 35 blocks as well as two large carry bags to hold the finished quilts and the binding strips to join the blocks.

As you can see all the blocks look fantastic and will make some beautiful quilts. I'd better get busy with putting them together now. I just want to say a very sincere thank you to everyone for their support with this appeal by sending so many wonderful donations. Keep an eye on the other blog for finished quilts.
Many thanks, Jan Mac

It's good to see that so many blocks keep coming to you. From a big selection you can find a perfect match for every block sent.
