This blog is dedicated to encouraging people to make quilts and laundry bags to send to Aussie service men and women currently serving overseas and to express our gratitude for their service. We care about the people - not the politics or the mission.
Our quilts are not works of art, but works of the heart.
These first three quilts were made by Annette, Lynn V and Carol Mc. Annette and Carol both live in QLD. Carol is Annette's friend and mentor and together they are making the quilt tops using a stash of donated fabrics. Lynn is one of Annette's sisters and she has a longarm quilting business in VIC and Lynn quilted two of the quilts and donated the third! Don't you wish you had a sister with a long arm quilting business and a friend with a stash of donated fabrics. Lucky Annette!
Now talk about a coincidence. I gave Annette a name to send a quilt to - let's call her A. After she had posted A's quilt Annette sent me the following messages -
I found out that A is the sister of a girlfriend of
mine.. how amazing is that. I didn't say who I was posting
too, the friend said she had requested a quilt for her sister and wouldn't it
be funny if she ended up with one of mine… I asked her her sisters
name. There can't be that many A's over there… or heading
over there very soon…. lol..
