A Good Start

 It's been a good start to the week as I finished off a mug rug for a swap with an overseas quilter, as well as finishing off 2 more QAYG quilts from donated blocks. They are shown on my other blog at Oz Comfort Quilts. I also received 2 more lovely parcels of donations. The first one contained more QAYG blocks, binding strips and lovely knitted beanies for the needy, all made and donated by Stephanie D. from WA.
 The second parcel was crammed full of lovely fabric and was donated by Cate G from NSW. The weather has been very cold and windy lately so I'm very grateful to have a warm bed. I'd hate to think how cold it must be for the homeless and I know that all the donations will help to warm the needy.
I've also finished enough crocheted squares for another single bed sized blanket so will get those put together in the next few evenings.
 Back to the sewing machine to finish off another QAYG quilt.
Many thanks for all your help with these projects.
hugs, Jan Mac

Jan, I have recently found two lots of wadding (the quilted type) in opshops - probably enough in each lot to use in one quilt. Would it be any use to you, or do you use a specific type of batting when you make up your quilts?

I use lots of different types of batting Gina and can use whatever you care to send. I also use fleecy fabric as batting for some quilts. Many thanks, Jan Mac
