Following Through.

 I finished the binding on the four tops from yesterday's quilting and have started packing boxes of quilts for delivery to Impact. The first quilt will be going to them and if you remember it was a donated top I took apart as the original squares showed very little contrast between the fabric in each squares thanks Lorraine B. for passing on the donated top from your friend. It will make a lovely gift quilt for Impact for Women, which helps victims of domestic violence.
   The remaining three quilts will be distributed by my Melbourne quilting group, AQA, to organizations which support kids in care or those with cancer. I also took a few spare moments to make more QAYG blocks as the pile is decreasing, so I'll share them tomorrow. It's always pleasing to have finished quilts ready for donation to the needy. I must do a count of those going to Impact as I was hoping to have 25 ready by the end of January. I'm hoping I'll have a few more than that finished but night shift will cut into my quilting time again this week.
Hugs, Jan Mac

Thanks for your kind comments, ladies. Marijke, I usually make quilt tops 40" x 60" for children and teenagers and 50" x70" for adults, but I usually use the QAYG blocks to make the larger quilts. I hope this helps and many thanks for your donations.
