Requests 29 August 16

Hi all

Before anything else…Please please, please keep an eye on the blog.   This is my most effective way of keeping you all informed with what is going on and I really need your help supplying info when asked so that I can get the request list and other data sources up to date after the fire.

I am not yet able to write posts every night but I am working towards it. 

All emails should now come to me at friendsofAHQ@gmail.com

Here is this week’s list.   Anything you are not sure of.. JUST ASK!

PRIORITY QUILTS

If you take on a request that has absolutely no leeway in posting dates I always try to let you know.  Requests 1, 2 and 3 must be in the mail no later than end of September.   If you are interested in these quilts you need to know that as there is not much room to run later than the post by date of 3 October.

POST BY DATE

The post by date for the rest of the requests in this week’s list 3 October.  PLEASE note the date and let me know if you have any problems getting your quilt/LB away on time. In fact, if you are going to be late posting it please let me know BEFORE you post it.  Also, if this time frame is too tight for you, there are options, just email me to discuss.  :-)

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE copy the ENTIRE line if you wish to nominate for a quilt or laundry bag.  This is really important to make sure that neither you nor I copy the wrong number which could lead to me giving you the wrong details for specific request.

B=both quilt and laundry bag (feel free to nominate to JUST do the laundry bag if you wish)

Q= just a quilt

LB = just a laundry bag

Requests in pink are for girls.

NOTE

Australian National Flag - you can buy panels at Spotlight – ask for them if you can’t find them.

The Royal Australian Regiment Badge is an infantry badge andI can send you one which can be pieced in or added as an applique.

There is one quilt that would like Australian National Flags and RAE… RAE is the engineers and their motto is “Honi Soit Qui Mal Y Pense”.  Also their colours are red and blue.

7RAR

7RAR is deployed and they are known as the Porky 7 or the Pig Regiment. I will write a post to explain this at a later date but in the meantime, just about any pig will do from cute little porky pig to farmyard pigs to big mean looking boars.  Many of the quilts on this list are also from 7RAR.  Even though they do not mention Pigs specifically if you wanted to add a pig to their quilt or laundry bag it would go down well.   If you are interested in doing that please let me know and I will tell you which requests to look at. 

ANZAC Themed Quilts

Suggestions for this include poppies (yes for blokes), soldier silhouettes (I can provide pictures to use) the word ANZAC, 1915-2015, Lest We Forget, Aussie Flag, Rising Sun Badge ( I can provide)

RANDOM QUILTS

If you have a quilt underway that does not match any of these requests please let me know. I have options for you.

Remember, you do not have to include everything they have asked for.    Footy quilts do not need to have the logo or even the team name. Using the team colours is all that is required. Simple is perfectly acceptable.  A number of these requests have given you favourite colours as well as footy teams or other hobbies and interests.    It is fine to make a quilt using their favourite colours and include only one of their interests.  It is fine to keep it simple.

If there is more than one request on this list that you would be happy to do I suggest that you send me a list of requests and tell me how many you want to be allocated…. ie one of the following please….  There are always a few requests that everyone wants to do (and I can never pick them) so if the first one you ask for is taken then I can allocate another from your list if I have a list.

A quick note… even if you check the request list every week, please take the time to skim over this preamble.  I edit it to make it relevant every week and I know that many of you are not reading it by the questions I am being asked. It takes you just a minute or two to scan it but takes me considerably longer to read and answer the emails I receive ….. please give me a hand in this. Your assistance is appreciated.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Cheers and happy stitching!
