Many Thanks Beyond Meander Quilting.

Sharon Siacci of Beyond Meander Quilting has very generously donated her time by professionally Quilting some of the larger donated tops for Oz Comfort Quilts.  The first beautiful quilt top was donated by Diane Cutting from the ACT.
Norma Vinnicombe (Vic) donated this beautiful King sized quilt top as well as batting.
Beryl Webb (Vic) donated this beautiful queen sized quilt top in pinks.
This lovely grey top was donated with backing but the name has come detached  so if you recognise it please let me know so that I can add your name to the label. 

 Leslie Schwartz (Vic) donated this beautiful bright quilt top in orange, yellow and black. 

Sharon's quilting really enhances the quilt tops and if you need a quilt finished then I am very happy to recommend Sharon. She is based at Ashburton,  s suburb of Melbourne. 

It's lovely to see so many large tops finished for donation.

Hugs, Jan Mac

Many Thanks Lesley, Cathy, Maia and Maret.

This week donations have arrived from Cathy Bruton (Vic) who donated some lovely craft items for kids, such as pencil cases,  colouring pencils and sticker books, as well as a lovely cot quilt and 20 Santa Sacks. 

Lesley Lowe is a long-term supporter of Oz Comfort Quilts and she has sent another large box containing 2 dolls, 2 rabbit soft toys, 13 knitted teddies,  2 knitted rattles, a bag of angora wool, 8 beanies, 1 tote bag, 13 drawstring bags,  a cot quilt top and some orphan blocks. 

Maia and Maret Butler from NSW have sent another large box of hand knitted items and this time they sent 6 baby blankets, 2 beanies and 15 jumpers/ jackets. Their beautifully knitted items will be much appreciated by families to keep their babies/toddlers warm.

Thank you all so much for your generous donations and support.  I'm having a quiet week as I  caught a viral chest infection,  thankfully not Covid, but I hope to be busy quilting again soon.
Hugs, Jan Mac

A Flurry of Finishes.

I have been busy finishing as many  donations as possible before the organisations close to donations over the Christmas break and I wanted to make room for more finishes. I finished 4 baby burp cloths.
This circular top was donated by Jan Rhodes and the Sunnybank Quilters from Qld and I finished it as a baby play mat but it  might have started out to be a circular tablecloth. 
More teddies received their new knitted jumpers. 
Laurel Box and the Stitching Sisters from Berwick (Vic) donated the next top.
Cathy Bruton  (Vic) donated the next pretty floral quilt top, batting and backing.
Marie Lee and the Victorian Quilter's Association donated the next quilt top which had been basted for quilting. 
Cathy Bruton  (Vic) donated the cute cot quilt top with a seaside theme and I found a cute whale print flannelette which I used for the backing.
The Stitching Sisters donated the next pretty top.
Marie Lee and the Victorian Quilter's Association donated the next beautiful top which had been basted for quilting too.
Robin Walker and the Fishbowler Sewists from Tasmania donated the next 3 tops. 

Lyz Kershaw (Vic) donated the next cute top for a child. 
The next top was also from the Fishbowler Sewists. 
Lots of finishes and more to come soon.
Hugs, Jan Mac
