Thirty Eight!

 Busy times here with lots of baby cuddles, singing and playing and not a lot of time for blogging. Every spare minute left is being used for quilting.
  However at the weekend I boxed up 30 quilts and delivered them to Peter Mac Cancer Centre as well as 8 quilted tops for my quilting group's Gift Quilt program. Yes that's right 30 for Peter Mac thanks to your lovely donations. The first quilt here is one of the fabulous tops seng by Jo L. from Qld. I divided it into 2 tops which made it an ideal size for a donation quilt. The second quilt was another from donated QAYG blocks in a 12 inch size.  I have a few variations in block sizes on hand and just make a few extra if there's not enough for a quilt.

 The remaining quilts are tops I have quilted and most of these will also be going to the Peter Mac Cancer Centre from AQA's gift quilt program and will be presented at our Biggest Morning Tea event in 2 week's time.

It's been great to box up 38 more quilts for donation which leaves me more room for the next lot I am finishing. I am trying to sew my way out of the mess in the sewing room but there is no visible difference yet. Lol. I think we have passed the goal of 100 quilts for Peter Mac and I  think we have already reached 117 but I need to check that. Either way the need is still great so I  plan to keep quilting as time allows.
Hugs, Jan Mac
