A Clan Quilt
I had a lovely day at home yesterday with the rain falling steadily all day and the wood fire heating our home. I managed to put together a quilt top of string pieced blocks and quilted and bound it as well as finishing the binding on the 3 remaining quilts from a day or so ago. Then I still had some time left so I put together another set of QAYG blocks into a quilt. The lovely Lesley L (Vic) was meeting me in the rain to do a handover of bits and pieces so I wanted to have as many finished quilts ready as possible. Lesley and her willing group of generous quilters have been busy making more tops and backings for me to quilt and donate as well as more quilts they'd finished as well. One of Lesley's family members was going to take the boxes of donations back to Melbourne for me and it is a big save on postage costs.
Although we got a bit wet in the transferring of boxes from car to car it was lovely to see Lesley again and know that we had helped bring comfort to more needy people as our winter weather has started with very wet and cold nights.
Many thanks for all your help. I was going to work on some of my many UFOs today but the pile of tops waiting for quilting is also beckoning.
Hugs, Jan Mac
