Happy Mail Wednesday 12 Sept

Time for Happy Mail Wednesday again - I don't know about you but the weeks seem to be flying past.  Only two and a bit weeks of September to go.  One of our September HMAS ANZAC quilts has made it into the mail so far.  Is everyone else on track?  Karen D, Jill, Bern J and Naomi - let me know if you are having any problem making the deadline please.  Excuse the reminder on the post but it is quicker than separate emails.

Lots of gorgeous September Hourglass BOM blocks have started to come in.  Check them out.

Dorothy sent me 80!!!!  but I have only put half a dozen up as I ran out of time to put them all up.
Way to go Dorothy.


The last few blocks for the Diddams' quilts are coming in.  If anyone thinks theirs are still in the mail can you please let me know.  Everything I have received up until now has been posted on the blog.

And the last of last month's BOM seem to have made it in too -once again if you think there are more in the mail can you please let me know. This batch, which also includes a block for the Diddams' quilts, came from Janine, who sewed these even with a broken arm!  Get well soon Janine.


We already have one lot being made up and this lot below, with the ones above just make up another lovely quilt.


Heather H from country NSW, a member of a group called the Cackle Club made this simple but effective quilt top.  (don't you love it)


200 9" squares cut by Sue N - and being used on the 16th at the Penrith Sewing Day
to  make 100 BOM blocks and maybe even a quilt top if we get that far.

This quilt was made by my friend, Louise.


She also made this quilt top 


and this one


and this one.  Plus sent me all the backings and bindings.


Louise out did herself, considering not all that long ago she was biding her time in Intensive Care!  These are her fabulous laundry bags.







And last but not least - Leonie's cute girly quilt top - her second ever quilt top I believe.



A close up so that you can see the cute Ladybugs.



Leonie also took the time to put some of the July Shoo Fly blocks together for me and all that is needed now is some border fabric.



I think you will agree that there are lots of goodies in the mail this week.

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

  1. Great work everyone, and what a legend Janine is, sewing all those blocks with a broken arm...I would've used a sewing machine myself, lol...sorry Janine, I shouldn't try and be funny when you did such great work when most would just throw the towel in....hope your arm is healing nicely.

    JM, I've edited the post to amend two little errors...hopefully not too many others have read the post yet to have spotted them before I fix 'em up!

    Hugs

  3. You made me smile, Naomi - and I agree, ha ha. It wasn't a really bad break and I'm not a patient person and I was a bit naughty. I love seeing all the blocks Jan-Maree shares with us and I really hope it's exciting for her to open all the packets and parcels and then play around with them for a bit.
    It's just so wonderful that leftovers and FQs can be chopped up, re-arranged and turned into something that satisfies our need to create and nuture, that has such beauty and 'speaks' messages of joy, comfort and caring to those who need it.
