Quilty Comings and Goings

I've received more wonderful donations from around Australia and it means that we can help so many more people to stay warm.
Mary Bargery (NSW) has again sent a beautiful quilt shown on my other blog as well as 39 beautiful QAYG blocks.
Dallas Neumeyer, Pauline Lees and the Come Quilting Loose Threads quilting group also sent a fabulous parcel with a quilt (shown on the other blog), as well as a quilt top and backing, basted and ready to be quilted, and 15 lovely QAYG blocks.
Delys Rogers (WA) has again very generously sent a pretty pink quilt top, with backing and binding for a young girl, as well as some fabric, a bag to match the quilt and 6 knitted beanies. I'll be quilting the top tomorrow and it will be given to a young girl when she attends a camp for abused kids.
Yesterday I also met up with Lesley Lowe who brought over two very large bags stuffed full with 3 quilts (shown on the other blog), as well as many quilt tops with backing/binding, cloth bags and many knitted beanies and fabric. The Kyabram quilters have been very busy supporting others less fortunate by making quilts etc.
As well as all of these donations coming in I sent off 2 very large boxes containing 14 large quilts, knitted/crocheted blankets, knitted beanies, scarves and baby items. They will be distributed to needy people who are helped by different organizations around Melbourne. The boxes weighed a total of 26kg so that's a lot of warmth to share around where its needed.
Thank you all for your ongoing support with these quilt appeals.
Hugs, Jan Mac
