The Postman Has Been Busy.

 More parcels arrived today and Yvonne Hamilton in the US sent these 2 lovely kid's tops with Paddington Bear fabrics. They will be sure to bring a smile to little faces and I will get them quilted ASAP.
 Heather Mahncke and her mother, from Vic , have again sent a big parcel with 3 more lovely quilt tops.
 They also included more lovely blocks and lots of them have beautiful machine embroidery so they will look lovely as a quilt.
 Margaret Bryant from Vic has also sent a large parcel with 35 fabulous QAYG  blocks made in blue with a touch of red. I will put these together with red sashing and hope to get them done soon.
 Margaret also sent a lovely I Spy top with backing, binding and batting so I will pin baste that one tomorrow and get it finished quickly.
Also in the parcel Margaret included $20 towards batting, as well as more sets of binding, some orphan blocks and a long strip of Chinese Coins which I can use to make wider backings.
     Thank you all so much for your help with our quilt drive for bushfire affected areas. As well as East Gippsland we will be distributing in the Corryong area before helping in southern NSW if we have enough quilts leftover from distribution in Vic..
It was a big family day today so I hope to get more quilting done tomorrow.
Hugs, Jan Mac
