Friday's quilts of the week.

What a busy week it has been! 
 We have had 18 requests for quilts - yes EIGHTEEN! -  and all bar one have been taken up so far!  WOW!  Well done everyone!  Anyone who feels like sewing something girly for our latest request please let me know. (UPDATE!!!   YAY!  Someone has just claimed it!)

I have had word that a few new quilters have come on board with lots of enthusiasm and that is always good news.

We have been mentioned in an ABC news article and I even did a regional radio interview (thanks for that Naomi) and I have been asked to do another speaking engagement.  

There have been more donations of fabric and I will be collecting more on Monday.  Just a reminder anyone short of fabric - feel free to email me and send me a 3kg prepaid satchel and I will fill it for you particularly if you want fabric for laundry bags or backings.

There are two Aussie Hero Sewing Days coming up in the next two weeks, one in Penrith on 8 July and one in Gawler SA on 10 July. 
Leave a comment or email me for details of either.

Yep, it has been a good week.

And now for this week's 

Show and Tell

Nancy from WA has been sewing and quilting for various charities for over 20 years and is well known in her area.  She seems to have the whole region organized to help out, either with donations or effort.  This week she sent off five quilts courtesy of everyone's help!





Christine has been busy too.  She managed to stay "gender neutral" by doing one for a guy

and one for a girl!
She even managed to include a little bit of Aussie fabric on the girl's!

Liz has been busy again and sent off her gorgeous wonky log cabin which was a collaborative effort made up of blocks donated by the Quilter's Patch group from Kalamunda.
Erika sent off these two today as well but this first one now has a Southern Cross on it only Erika forgot to take a pic of it.  Nevermind...we can use our imagination!



Just before I go...

I showed you the link to the news article in which we rated a mention in Wednesday night's post but did you check out the gallery of photos taken by the journalist Kathy McLeish - you really need to check them out!

Till next time..............keep spreading the word and happy stitching!
