Generous Donations

These beautiful QAYG blocks were all donated by generous quilters from overseas as well as across Australia and will help to make some lovely quilts.
The first 2 blocks came from S. Poole in the UK and the next 6 QAYG blocks were donated by Twan Renwick from Sth Africa. I will be adding the different countries to the labels and I know that the people will love to see how far the blocks have traveled.
Jeanette Chowne (NSW) sent 4 lovely QAYG blocks and Ann Birch (Vic) sent 16 lovely QAYG blocks.
The two quilt tops were made and donated by Yvonne Williams in WA and she also sent binding for the quilts and Sue Fisher (Vic) sent 8 lovely QAYG blocks in a variety of prints.
I'm busy with paid work for the next few days but I'm still making time to either put QAYG blocks together or prepare backings for the donated tops.
I'm also organizing delivery to Qld as the Vic areas have asked me to hold off on delivery for a few weeks until they are able to deal with more donations.
Hugs and thanks, Jan Mac

Those are beautiful blocks! I'm trying to get a linky party started for charity projects -- Crafting for a Cause. I thought it might be a good way to share info on different charities and to see each others' projects. Feel free to link up if you'd like! :o)
